My name is John Sherman. I learned to play the guitar at a very early age. Three months after I had my first lesson, I started a band and we played for our first "sock hop". I've been in love with music and the guitar ever since.
I play (and sing) various forms of Oldies (from the 50's - like Buddy Holly - thru the 80's - The Eagles),
Modern Country (like Toby Keith, Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, George Strait, etc.), and even some
Classics (Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Andy Williams, etc.).
I also have a female vocalist who sings backup - she goes by "sidekick Mary" :)
The background music is provided by The Ghostriders (invisible - since they're stored on my laptop). Hence, I named the act "Johnny & The Ghostriders with Sidekick Mary".
I jokingly call the Ghostriders Tom, Dick, and Harry.
We do songs by:
Oldies - The Beatles, Neil Diamond, Buddy Holly, The Eagles, Jimmy Buffett, Ricky Nelson, Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Lynyrd Skynyrd, etc.
Country - Toby Keith, Brad Paisley, Keith Urban, Little Big Town, George Strait, Blake Shelton, Kenny Chesney, etc.
I've uploaded sample music which demonstrates my ability to perform Oldies, Country, and what I call "the classics" (Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett...). Hope you enjoy the selection.
