John played his first dance on a Ferry Boat crossing back & forth the Historic James River in his home state of Virginia in 1962 for his local 4H Club when he was 14 years old with an arm full of vinyl records and a portable two piece stereo record player that he had just gotten for Christmas.
John has played local events and for many Shag & Bop Clubs from the shores of the Atlantic Ocean across the Blue Ridge Mountains to Kentucky and down to the Sunshine State of Florida where he and his wife Phyllis live in the Wintertime. John was the house DJ the last 5 years of its existence for Thursday In Old Town Beach Music event held in Petersburg, Virginia, the longest running Beach Music event held in Virginia playing with all the touring Beach Music Bands.
