Over a career that began in the early ‘90s Johnny’s played upwards of 300 shows a year worldwide. The BossToneS are credited as being the progenitor of the ska-punk genre and have released a slew of ground breaking albums. In 1997 they scored big with the platinum selling album “Let’s Face It,” and the number one song “The Impression that I Get.” With the band Johnny has appeared on countless television shows including Saturday Night Live, co-hosted shows on MTV and appeared in the hit film “Clueless.” The band continues to play live shows including this summers spot opening for Foo Fighters at Fenway Park.

Following that he moved to Jacksonville, Florida to take a brake from the industry.
