John Jorgenson is a Grammy Award-winning virtuosic multi-instrumentalist and composer who has performed with many music icons, including Elton John, Bonnie Raitt, Bob Dylan, and Luciana Pavarotti.
He was a founding member of legendary trio The Hellecasters, the award winning Desert Rose Band and his quintet has become one of the worlds premier groups specializing in the Gypsy Swing music pioneered by the great Django Reinhardt.
Besides being one of the worlds great guitarists, John is proficient on the mandolin, mandocello, dobro, pedal steel, piano, upright bass, clarinet, bassoon, saxophone and probably anything else you care to throw at him!
John and I perform in the Guitar Army, a trio comprising us and Texas legend Lee Roy Parnell. I’ve learned so much from being around John. He is a true pro in every sense of the word and every time he takes the stage he brings a showmanship and musical depth that is genuinely captivating.
