Johhny Vidacovich, is the epitome of an old soul. However this old soul is best in his element, with two drumsticks in hand and a Louisiana styled backing band at his side. In town for a Mardi Gras celebration at the One-2-One bar, Johnny and his group of jazzy instrumentalists came by Studio 1A for a quick a seasonal session of New Orleans swing past and present. Johnny’s playing lays in the foundation of unpredictability, showing kindness to the many horizontal shifts and switches in the drum patterns he maneuvers. These drums combine with swaying guitar strings and upright bass notes to bring a smooth sounding style perfect for lazy Sunday or even a fat Tuesday.
