JOHN TOPPINGS

acoustic soloist

 “I try to play songs that bring back great memories of great times”

Growing up in a musical family, I listened to many styles of music: 

Traditional Country, Bluegrass, Rockabilly and Classical……

Artists from BILL MONROE to the EAGLES and styles from 

HAGGARD to BACH.  Music is a part of my life and always

will be… I try to show that through my music.. 

 I’ve played in various bands and styles of music but I still

enjoy the songs of the 70’s mixed with some country ( new

and old ) and new Artists that go well with the classic sound. 

As a solo Artist I try to keep a full sound, so I add drums and

vocal harmonies  to the mix ( no recordings ). Whether the

audience is just listening or dancing, they get a full sound

with no volume issues. I try to handle all requests swiftly,

because that KEEPS THEM COMING BACK FOR MORE. 

 

PEACE,    JOHN
