About
Johnny V - Guitar and Lead Vocals

Johnny V is a man of incredible musical talent hidden in the heart of Utah. Where the desert brings out the provocative ponderings of people who linger at its vistas, John brings out the soul of each song he sings. A rocker, a romantic, a freakin' rip apart lead guitarist, a voice that sings raw in its anthems or tender in its poignant poetry, John has moved a crowd to sing along, dream along, or get on its feet and dance.

Like many fine musicians, John spreads his music by playing with many local bands - Abraxas: a Tribute to Santana, Mosaic, Deuce Coupe, to his current duo show with bassist Larry Alexander, and more - John is all over the Salt Lake Valley, meeting people, making them smile, and bringing an unbelievable musical experience to everyone in the room. It has not gone unnoticed. Recently, John has played with one of his music mentors John Kilzer in two separate concerts. He has also performed with Fergie Frederiksen of Toto, Alex Ligertwood of Santana, and Joe Bouchard of Blue Oyster Cult.

When you grow up in a musical family out in the middle of the Utah desert, playing drums and guitar is something that naturally fills your time. His brothers needed a drummer for their band - so at 12, John is playing bars. (Good thing they didn't check ID's back then.) So it begins: the Ink Spots and Patsy Cline from his parents playlist, classic rock and roll, country, 80's big hair rock (did you see John's hair? No, it's not a toupee. Be envious, gentlemen,) rhythm and blues, current Indie trends - John has to be the most versatile player around. And he is so good. As a friend once said, "Yeah, I think you're done with Mel Bay guitar lesson book 2."

John's CD, Trouble Train is more edgy than his first and he features Jeff Keele of the Jeff Keele Band on several songs and is the final mixing stages. "Just For You", John's first CD, won him listeners all over the world. (Italians were topping the John's fan chart through CD-baby.) He is currently endorsed by Burns of London, Stetsbar Tremelo Systems, AMI Guitars, Supro Guitars and Soultone Cymbals.


Trouble Train –The Engine

This amazing band is comprised from some of Utah's most amazing musicians. John remarks that after years of searching “I think I finally have the perfect band. The musicians are all so very talented and have a large gigging repertoire.“

Jim Stout is one of Utah's most renowned bassists. He is a graduate of Brigham Young University. He toured as bassist for the Osmond Brothers for several years and currently plays with select musical projects in the Salt Lake City area. His amazing musical ability lends to a very solid and fun musician playing standard, fretless and upright basses. His incredible ability to solo adds a fantastic dimension to the band.

Jamie Dalton is the drummer John was in search of for several years. Jamie is an off the charts Jazz and rock drummer in the northern Utah scene. His ability to play with finesse is unmatched in the percussion world. Jamie has played with numerous artists in various venues. He brings energy and enthusiasm to the band with his ability to play jaw-dropping solos and maintain strong backing rhythms for the band.

Rodney Strong has been performing on the keyboards for over 30 years. His nickname is Rod Zilla because he is such a monster keyboard player. Rod also is a great vocalist and adds great lead and harmony vocals to nearly every song. He is Utah's moat sought after keyboard player for these reasons.
