Johnny’s Dance Band

Johnny’s Dance Band reigned supreme from 1974 to 1980. They even set some local records. When WMMR listeners voted them the #1 Local Band, they played the station’s 9th Birthday at Penn’s Landing. Playing on flatbed trucks, they drew 20,000 fans. JDB was the 1st unsigned act to ever play the 19,000 seat Spectrum ... simply due to local popularity. But, cabaret rock‘n roll was their strength. The group’s popularity stemmed from their “Rock ‘n Roll Vaudeville” style.
They were enormously entertaining, all the while playing some super rock ‘n roll. Their music & show was as unique and original as anything you’ve ever witnessed
Original members, Tony Juliano, Bobby Lenti and Courtney Colletti now join forces with new members, Su Teears & George Manney.
