Highlands natives, the J3 Vocal Band, make the ‘oldies’ feel new again while performing ‘50s through ‘80s classic hits next Saturday. Family members Dennis, Bonnie and Chad Johns rock the ages performing songs from artists such as Ben E. King, Tanya Tucker, Elvis Presley and more.
Complete with costume changes, choreography and even a little comedy, no two shows are the same with the J3 Vocal Band. Fans come back time, and time again to twist away with the group’s upbeat songs and personality. This group delivers an exciting, moving and memorable experience, while keeping true to each song’s original impact.
“It never gets old,” Chad says, one of the three vocalists for the group. “It just doesn’t get any better than this; singing with my family has always been what I wanted to do more than anything.”
The family’s master harmonies are not to be denied. Despite a hiatus from touring in the southern gospel industry for over 15 years, the trio launched the seven-piece group, adding band members Wayne (guitar), Mike (bass), Dave (keyboards) and Steve (drums), rounding out the band to regenerate the old-school sounds of rock n’ roll’s golden era.
“I don’t know of anything better than singing everyone’s old favorites with your family,” says Dennis.
The J3 Vocal Band brings this rock revival to the Cultural Center in Port Charlotte, FL next Saturday on June 24. Audiences will get the chance to boogie down to hits from artists like Billy Joel, Dixie Cups, The Beach Boys, Stevie Nicks, Chuck Berry, Roy Orbison, The Coasters, Roy Hamilton and Bobby Vee, just to name a few.
Advance ticket prices: $17, for Cultural Center Members $13 (Limit 2 at the member price) Day of Show: $17 – no discounts. Show starts at 7:00pm all seats reserved.
