JOHNNY HARPER & CARNIVAL
JOHNNY HARPER & CARNIVAL is the 21st-century incarnation of the band Johnny has been leading for 40 years! – under this name since 2001, and earlier under the name Hot Links. The group is seen here in its full 8-piece form, but also performs in smaller versions of 4 to 6 members. The Carnival band purveys a joyous and powerful mix of Johnny’s original songs, upbeat New Orleans R&B, the music of The Band, and other American-roots styles. This group will return to the stage after the pandemic passes!
SHOWN HERE: A 2017 live performance of Johnny’s song “Nothin’ but a Party.”
