2017: Call it a Comeback

Performing with Mason

Johnny Zapp live with Mason

Most of you know that I bailed out of the live rock and roll scene around 2007. I’ve always said that if the songs were good enough, I might do the band thing again. That said, 2017 marks my prominent return to live performing. I’ll be performing on guitars, bass and drums with as many national acts as my schedule permits. Toss in the occasional solo gig, or acoustic duo and I’m one busy cat.


Live at Kulak’s Woodshed

Live at Kulak’s Woodshed with Bernie Lezotte

With all the rocking I’m doing lately, I haven’t been neglecting my acoustic guitars either. Bernie Lezotte and I just did a “Storyteller’s” type of acoustic show at Kulak’s Woodshed in North Hollywood. We had a blast playing each other’s original material, talking about the inspiration for the songs and knocking out a few covers, too. I played bass on Bernie’s songs and he played lead guitar on mine. The show was broadcast live and filmed, so watch for videos soon. We plan on doing more acoustic events like this throughout the year, as our schedules permit. Make sure to like/follow my Facebook page if you’re not already, to keep up with all the dates for my performances.

Johnny Zapp Clayton USA picks

2017 also begins my endorsement relationship with Clayton USA. I’ve been using Clayton products since I was a little kid, riding my bmx bike to the local music store so it’s pretty cool to be working with them now. Thanks for the goods, Clayton!
