Johnny Nicholas

Johnny Nicholas has spent a lifetime soaking up the flavor of such vibrant music
scenes as Chicago, Southwest Louisiana and Texas (which he’s called home
now for 40 plus years). His music is full-spectrum Americana — a rich gumbo
of blues, cajun, swing, and barrelhouse rock ’n’ roll. He is a
consummate songwriter, as well as a gifted vocalist and multi instrumentalist.
His collaborations with musical soulmate and longtime friend Cindy Cashdollar
are not to be missed. Cindy and Johnny both served time-good time(though not
at the same time) with Texas’ premier western swing band, the legendary Asleep
at the Wheel.
Cindy is one of the all time great steel guitar players who, in addition to her well
known associations with Bob Dylan, Levon Helm, Rod Stewart and many others,
has won multiple awards and recognitions including several Grammys. Her Slide
Show album is a masterpiece which showcases her prowess both on her
instrumental numbers as well as in the company of Johnny, Marcia Ball, Sonny
Landreth and other musical luminaries.
The addition of co-conspirator Scrappy Jud Newcomb is the icing on this already
delectable musical cake. Scrappy is arguably the best guitarist and accompanist
in Austin today and his Mandolin playing is stunning and soulful. He has an
Austin musical pedigree second to none. His long time stint with Rock and Roll
hall of famer Ian McLagen being but one of the many musical affiliations of note
on his resume.
The three of them worked together in Johnny’s band Hell Bent for six years
before Cindy moved back to Woodstock recently.
Join this trio of gifted Americana music greats for an unforgettable night of
music and ‘troubadoric’ ramblings.
