John Reno,

John is one of the top Trop Rock singer/songwriters in the country. In high demand and always on the go. He does a Jim Croce tribute show but at this house concert he will do mostly his own songs and a couple of Jim Croce songs.

In 2011 John Reno and John Patti were in a Folgers Coffee commercial competition where out of several thousand entrants they were in the final 5. They performed in New York for the final live show competition. We believe they should have won but the judges had to make a tough call.

John has been a finalist for the Trop Rock Music Awards in multiple categories numerous times over the years. His unique vocals and instrumentals set him apart from most performers. A few years ago John was working a regular job and after performing for several years part-time decided to just quit his job and become a full-time musician. And as they say, the rest is history. His video “Big Ol Johnson” has over half a million hits on You Tube and is one of his most requested songs. Be sure to catch John on his first appearance in this area.
