Matt Johnson’s Jet Set | Steamers JAZz at JAX

November 2 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Steamers Jazz at JAX

Drummer Matt Johnson, lauded as a hurricane on sticks is equally versed in all forms of jazz, pop and world drumming styles and has performed with a range of entertainers, from singers Julie Andrews and Andy Williams and Surf-rock pioneers Jan and Dean to big band legends Billy May and Les Brown. He is a founding member of the Tony Guerrero Quintet which, since 2014, has toured with Golden Globe- and Emmy Award-winning actress/comedienne Jane Lynch.

A veteran of the Squires and Velvet Knights Drum and Bugle Corps, Johnson was a full-time musician at the Disneyland Resort from 1979 to 1990 and continues to appear regularly in shows in and around the Resort. As a freelance musician, he has been a part of a number of exceptionally creative ensembles, among them the critically acclaimed Palm Springs Yacht Club, a musical comedy quartet delivering hot jazz from the 20s and 30s and the contemporary organ trio, 2+1B3. In collaboration with renowned composer and arranger Tom Kubis, he co-created and lead the nine-piece early-jazz show band, Swing Savant, described by the Los Angeles Times as “the Casa Loma Orchestra on acid.”
