“Johnny V” Vernazza—With a Little Help From His Friends
Multiple Gold recording artist Johnny Vernazza’s blues and slide guitar history is right out of the dynamic San Francisco Bay Area scene of the 1960s, a hotbed of fantastic music, especially the West Coast and Southern Blues genres.  Playing with such greats as Luther Tucker and Sunnyland Slim, Johnny V was asked by Elvin Bishop to join a new band he was putting together, and this association led to six albums, endless touring and the #3 song in the nation in 1974 : “Fooled Around and Fell in Love“. That record turned Gold as did an LP with The Marshall Tucker Band that featured Johnny and Elvin on slide guitar. These days, San Diego is fortunate to call Johnny V one of our own, playing with his own band as well as appearing with numerous visiting greats.  He seems to know everyone worth knowing in the blues scene, and has put together some fantastic collaborations for Gator By the Bay in the past, appearing on stages with Elvin Bishop, Maria Muldaur,
Lazy Lester and others. 

Dubbed San Diego’s “Most Dangerous Band” Len Rainey and the Midnight Players have been rocking all over the world for the past 20 years. Expect nothing short of a perfect musical mix of rhythm, rock and blues with this group.  While vocalist Len Rainey croons his way into your heart, renowned guitarist Johnny “V” Vernazza, Walter Gentry and drummer Danny “Fat Back” Martinez will keep you rockin’ for more.
