"WALLPAPER LADIES' BALL
( © Courtney  Colletti )

Led by songwriter, Courtney Colletti - lead vocal, guitar - Johnny’s Dance Band plays their debut performance of this beautiful, sultry, jazzy, bluesy number. Please excuse the poor video quality, due to low light levels at the club.
But, this piece came off so moody and cool, we thought fans of the band would dig it nevertheless.
JDB players also featured are: Tony Juliano - harmonica, vocals; Ray Cardona - drums, vocals; Arlyn Wolters - vocals;
Ron Ward - bass. Video Produced by Ron Ward.
Recorded at Steel City Coffeehouse, Phoenixville, PA, May 10, 2014.


 ”TRICKS UP MY APRON
( © 1974 Tony Juliano )

Tony Juliano - lead vocal - wanted a beatnik coffeehouse feel with this. The club’s low lighting again helped achieve it.
The band’s debut performance of the piece is loose, but in a good way - thanks to nice touches by featured JDB players:
Courtney Colletti - flute, vocals; Ron Ward - jazzy walkin’ bass; Ray Cardona - drums; Arlyn Wolters - keyboard.
Video Produced by Ron Ward.
Recorded at Steel City Coffeehouse, Phoenixville, PA, June 28, 2014.
