QUOTES/REVIEWS:
  • “He’s a prodigious performer, and a night with Jimmy at the keys is not unlike getting to
    hear George Gershwin or Cole Porter live. It’s hard to believe one guy could have written all
    these amazing songs. Webb is still at it, thankfully, and if you get a chance to see him live,
    grab it. People ask why nobody writes songs like they used to. Fortunately for us all, Jimmy
    Webb still does.” ~ American Songwriter Magazine

  • “Mr. Webb is a superb natural melodist whose best songs often combine the tuneful
    directness of country music with the unabashedly romantic harmonic palette of classic
    Hollywood film scores.” ~ The New York Times
A true living legend of songwriting, Jimmy Webb’s been crafting amazing songs, many of which have become cherished standards, for some
forty years. And he’s still doing it.  Now on tour with his newest CD, “Still Within the Sound of My Voice” Jimmy Webb is engaging his
audiences like never before. Though some might still not know his name, they know the songs: “
Wichita Lineman,” “By The Time I Get To
Phoenix
,” “Galveston,” “The Moon’s A Harsh Mistress,” “All I Know,” “The Highwayman,” “Up, Up and Away,” “MacArthur Park,” and
many more. And those are just the famous ones. Webb is one of those rare songwriters who manages to bring a genuine measure of magic
to everything he touches.

Venice is a band from Venice Beach, California that consists of two sets of
brothers:  Michael and Mark Lennon, and their cousins, Kipp and Pat Lennon.  

As a band, the Lennons have recorded and performed together since the 1980s.  Their
music is a reflection of many of their influences while growing up in the small, eclectic
and culturally diverse beach town for which they are named.  Their sound is at once
familiar and fresh, their classic rock and folk influences apparent in their pop
sensibilities.  You might recognize some of Venice’s influences, such as Crosby, Stills
& Nash, Fleetwood Mac, Joni Mitchell, Stevie Wonder, Steely Dan, the Eagles or Sly &
the Family Stone.  Their hybrid of folk/rock/soul is relevant, alive and still growing,
with many fans worldwide considering them the torchbearers of the Southern
California sound.

Venice’s trademarks are their harmonies, personal lyrics and high energy, communal
shows.  These garner them huge ovations and encores at virtually every performance
they’ve given, from intimate theaters to sprawling festivals, from the US to Europe.  
And it’s earned them major record releases on Sony Records, Universal Records,
Atlantic Records and Vanguard Records.
Their distinctive vocal sound and harmonies have allowed Venice and its members to perform and/or record with some of the biggest names
in the music industry, including Bruce Springsteen, Michael Jackson, David Crosby, Stevie Nicks, Bon Jovi, Jackson Browne, Brian Wilson,
Cher, Don Henley, Elton John, Michael McDonald, Phil Collins, Ozzy Osborne, Billy Idol, America, Heart, and the list goes on.  The Lennons
spent most of 2010-2013 as backing vocalists performing in the 219 show, record-breaking worldwide arena and stadium tour of “Pink Floyd’s
The Wall” with Roger Waters.  Recently, Venice was invited to contribute a track to the 2014 CD, “Looking Into You: A Tribute To Jackson
Browne,” joining such artists as Bruce Springsteen, Bonnie Raitt, Don Henley, Ben Harper and Lyle Lovett.

QUOTES/REVIEWS:
  • “Brilliant guitarist!” – ELTON JOHN
  • “John Jorgenson is one of my most favorite players. He is incredibly versatile and his
    solos are unique and melodic, played with amazing technique.  My 'guitarist’s
    guitarist.'” – PETER FRAMPTON
  • “If there was one guitar player I’d like to be, it would be John Jorgenson.”
    BRAD PAISLEY
  • “John Jorgenson is a true artiste. He’s a phenomenal musician.”
    CHRIS HILLMAN
  • “This is a display of virtuosity rarely rendered.” – FRETBOARD JOURNAL
  • “John Jorgenson is one of the most respected guitarists in the world…”
    LOS ANGELES TIMES
  • “John Jorgenson has a rare kind of genius for an instrumentalist in that he’s equally
    comfortable and capable of playing Buck Owens, Beatles riffs, or jazz leads…”
    NO DEPRESSION
The John Jorgenson Quintet was originally formed in 2004 for the release of “Franco American Swing”. The Gypsy Jazz they perform
reminds one of the string-driven swing created by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli in 1930’s Paris, but Jorgenson’s compositions
draw in elements from Latin, Romanian, Classical, Rock and Greek music. Calling it “21st Century World Music” might be a better
description.

John Jorgenson, known for his blistering guitar and mandolin licks and mastery of a broad musical palette, has earned a reputation as a
world-class musician, as evidenced by his collaborations with
Earl Scruggs, Bonnie Raitt, Elton John, Luciano Pavarotti, Bob Dylan and
many others.

First coming to national attention in the mid ‘80s as co-founder of successful country-rock act
The Desert Rose Band, Jorgenson won the
Academy of Country Music’s “
Guitarist of the Year” award two consecutive years. In the ‘90s The Hellecasters gave audiences a chance to
experience John’s fretboard fireworks.
Elton John invited Jorgenson to join his band in 1994 for an 18 month tour that stretched into a six-
year stint of touring, recording and TV appearances with the British superstar, in addition to collaborations with other artists including
Sting and Billy Joel.

2010 marked the 100th birthday of the great gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt. Since discovering Django in 1979, Jorgenson has become
“the US Ambassador of Gypsy Jazz” which is quite an honor given the distinctly European slant of the music’s heritage. Over the years
Jorgenson has continued to honor the legacy of Reinhardt by bringing his unique brand of Gypsy Jazz to the masses with his John
Jorgenson Quintet.

At performances of the John Jorgenson Quintet, audiences are awestruck by not only Jorgenson’s skillful guitar playing, but the solo
clarinet and bouzouki as well. Djangobooks perfectly articulates, “If he comes around, don’t miss him. The show is golden. The music
soars.”
