John Ginty Band
A New Jersey native, organist John Ginty has toured and recorded with artists such as Jewel, Citizen Cope, Santana, Dixie Chicks, Matthew Sweet, Court Yard Hounds, Bad Religion, and he was an original member of Robert Randolph and the Family Band, a band in which he received two Grammy Nominations, as well as a Gospel Music Award for Urban Album of the year in 2003. That same year, John appeared on the Blind Boys of Alabama's Grammy Award winner Higher Ground. Over the years he has been a frequent guest, sitting in with Santana, Ratdog, Govt. Mule, and the Allman Brothers at the Beacon Theatre. His discography spans over a decade and a half, and demonstrates his eclectic influences and unique sounds on the keys.
The Porchistas started as a bunch of friends writing and singing songs late into summer nights, on their rickety porch on Forest Street in Montclair, New Jersey. That evolved to DIY house concerts and block parties that continue today. Their songs navigate through the rock genre; Folk, swing, surf, reggae, blues, psychedelic, punk - always rock and roll. The Porchistas have developed friendships with musicians throughout The U.S. that shape the identity of who they are as a band. They see music and art as community building endeavors.
