John was great to work with! He is professional and very talented! He made our guests feel welcome and was always willing to accomodate! Our guests truly enjoyed his performance, one even said, "I want to throw a party just to have John play!" I would definitely hire him again and would recommend him to anyone needing a great solo artist!

If you think you've seen this before, you're wrong. John Rush is not just another singer/songwriter! Wowing audiences with his guitar work and capturing them with his voice and lyrics John Rush won Campus Entertainer of the Year and Campus Awards Musician of the Year!
John Rush has a much larger sound than most solo musicians. Taking a unique approach, John performs with the help of a loop machine that allows him to record a guitar "loop" on the fly and then play lead, bass, harmonica, piano, and percussion over it. John beats on his guitar, plays bass lines, and expressive guitar leads that impress the most critical listeners. This allows him to sound like a whole band even though it's just John and a guitar.
