Welcome to Johnny Gray Band

We are a Classic Rock & Blues Covers from 60s through to today. Been together 5 years and are Leeds based and happy to play up to around 100 miles around.

Johnny Gray has been writing original songs since 1971 when he first took up the electric guitar.  He was teaching in Plymouth at the time and formed a band called K.OS (pronounce Chaos) with two young talented musicians, Alan Moore on drums and Chris Doel on lead vocals.  Johnny played rhythm guitar in this three piece outfit but vocally, restricted himself to harmony backing vocals, not considering himself to be a singer at all.

 

Although the band concentrated on popular songs from Elvis Presley and the Beatles and pop songs actually in the charts at the time such as Wishing Well by Free and Jean Genie by David Bowie, it did also include some of Johnny's original songs which were always well received.  The band even went into the recording studio to record some of Johny's original material.  Sadly, at the time of writing, the results of that recording session have been lost.

 

In 1973, Johnny moved away from Plymouth to begin work in Southhampton.  Although he continued writing, he found no outlet for their performance but did commit the great majority to cassette tape.

 

Sadly, from 1980 to 2004, Johnny didn't write, play or sing a single note as he found himself in a marriage which prevented him from doing so.

 

However, upon release from that marriage and re-married to his new and lovely wife, Angie, who very much encourages Johnny's musical activities, he has had an outpouring of original material (mainly in the Blues, Rock, Pop and Country field) - finalising in excess of 200 original songs in that time.

However, he does offer an excellent 2 hour plus set - where he performs his original material to backing tracks and if you would be interested in booking him for that set,

then please contact him on 07528788919
