A very lively and energetic collection of new originals and traditional blues favorites performed superbly with Florida’s best, the “Usual Suspects”!

- “I really dig your new cd. “RED HOT”! Good mix of covers and original songs ( I especially like “I ain’t going to Hell” ) Good band name, haha, “THE USUAL SUSPECTS”

- Smokin’, rockin’ red hot blues … Jr. Johnny rocks from beginning to end, if you love the blues and blues harp this is a must buy, reminds me of James Cotton and Little Walter.
- A very lively and energetic collection of originals and traditional blues favorites performed superbly by Florida’s best, “Jr. Johnny and The Usual Suspects”.
- Jr. Johnny hails from New York City. Great blues and rock artist! Combines blues and rock for an upbeat “modern blues sound”!
- “Johnny’s harp steals the show on tracks like the sneaky shuffle of Help Me and the Ronnie Hawkins penned, rousing house rocker My Girl Is Red Hot. The Usual Suspects crank things up a notch. as if engaged in a musical tug of war to keep up with Johnny’s howling harp. The band sinks its teeth into the Hookeresque boogie of I Ain’t Goin’ to Hell, which heats up faster than the Florida sun. Tobacco Road lands a punch in the form of a churning rhythm courtesy of drummer George Wilson and bassist J.T. Burley and grappling guitar work by Stephan Minnich and Rick Fincke. When the band locks into a groove, it’s unshakable.
“Red Hot is roadhouse blues at its chugging, bristly best. Jr. Johnny and the band are a criminally underrated rough rocking outfit that should be tearing up blues festivals and barbecues nationwide.”
Mark Uricheck, Living Blues Magazine.
