CONCERT IN THE GARDEN
October 8th, 2017 - 4 - 6 pm
Johnny Martorelli - Solo Acoustic
Guitarist, Singer, Songwriter
This Chester native has had a passion for music ever since he can remember. Born and raised by a drummer and singer, music was never too far out of reach. Alfonso, Johnny's father, played drums with his band at the Cove Road Inn with former Mayor, Bob Blair. After the gig, you would often find them flipping burgers for their patrons at the Al-a-Bob in Chester center.
In his teens, Johnny showcased his talents on guitar fronting bands such as Rush Hour, Wired for Sound and Velocity.
Making a name for himself locally, he found himself in New York City. He soon joined the John McEnroe band touring the world with this tennis legend. You may still see a gig or two from this band annually.
Back in the River Valley, Johnny tours the shoreline playing gigs (with UHF, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, or solo) at venues such as Chamard Vineyards, Bill's Seafood, Donahue's, Water's Edge, Cuckoo's Nest, and a variety of private affairs. Johnny also makes time for younger talents, teaching lessons out of his home in Chester.
