“Thick Blues dripping over the edge of Rock” is what John Pagano Band has
been described as. This Indie Rock band captures an old sound with a
contemporary style. Formerly known as JPBlues, their release, “I Will Not
Go Quietly” CD was a very familiar name on the Roots Music Report Radio
Charts hitting for a total of 28 weeks straight and at #4. The level
heightened even more with the band’s follow up CD, “Make Room at the Table”
released in Sept 2013. The CD charted on RMR, crossed over into the Jam
Band Radio Charts as well as being considered part of the “Top 100 Blues
CD’s of 2014” by RMR. Also appearing on “Make Room at the Table” are
special guests Yonrico Scott and Todd Smallie (The Derek Trucks Band). In
January 2015, John Pagano released a live CD called, “Live at Darwin’s”. It
charted at #1 in the U.S. for Blues/Rock airplay. Now all of the talk is
the band’s newest CD release “One More Round”! It is clear that John Pagano
Band searing, soulful guitar gives hope to the rebirth of passion and soul
in music!

John started playing guitar at the age of 10 on Long Island, New York and
it was clear that something special was happening here. This “Something
Special” was recognized by legendary bluesman Sam “Bluzman” Taylor. Sam
took John under his wing and began to school him on the blues, or what Sam
use to call “SAMerizing”. John Toured the East coast with Sam’s band as a
special guest for a few years. It was under Sam’s watchful eye that John
began to flourish as a musician and a bluesman!

JPBlues formed in 2008 with band members Pat Adkins (Chuck Berry, Gary US
Bonds) on Drums and John Young (Ryan Leslie) on Bass. While playing the
festival circuit, they also recorded the band’s first two CD’s, “Die Happy”
and “I Will Not Go Quietly.”

In 2011, John left the New York music scene and moved to Georgia. It is
here that he met his drummer Shiloh Bloodworth, and in 2013 they both were
hired to back Australian artist Anni Piper (Blues Leaf Records) on her
first US tour. Later with the addition of Tony Hossri on Bass, John Pagano
Band had formed a new power trio and hit the road for an East Coast Tour as
well as tearing up the Southern Circuit. This Georgia based project
released three more CD’s “Make Room at the Table”, “Live at Darwin’s” and
“One More Round”.
