Johnny Fontane and the Rivals

Johnny Fontane and the Rivals – Mafia Blues without compromise!

SHORT BIOGRAPHY: The four Sicilian half brothers have had it up to here with „Nonna’s“ pasta and tomato sauce and in 2011 have finally traded in their iron guns and billy clubs for guitars and drumsticks. And it paid off!

When the four hoodlums get on stage to groove there ain’t a dry eye left in the house! Blues, with a pinch of rock, paired with a gentleman’s attitude and a good dose of humour, makes JFR one of the most happening blues-rock acts around.

CD-RELEASE INFO: With their first studio Album „LEMME TELL YA!“ JFR brings a new dimension into the Swiss blues scene. In any case, the debut album thrives with 12 of their own compositions, catchy guitar riff’s, solo’s and beautiful harmonious vocal arrangements brimming with self-confidence.

Alongside the firecracker songs there are a few soulful ballads on the album, which makes it into a complete creation of a lot of good, hand-made music. The album is mixed by none other than the Grammy Award winner, Adam Hawkins in Los Angeles, Californa, who has also produced artists such as Gary Clark Jr., Keith Urban, Maroon 5, Pink among others.

Featuring very special guests: Vinnie Moore (Alice Cooper/UFO) – Justina Lee Brown (Vocals) – Marco Pantherra (Harp)
