John T.



Lake Zurich, IL

Organizer since:

August 4, 2013

What types of guitar(s) do you play?

Washburn steel string and Matsuo classical ... but, sadly, owning guitars and actually being able to play them are two different things....

Do you have any classical training?

Vocal training, solos, competitions, choruses, "a cappella" harmonies....

How would you characterize your vocal style?

I have always been a "lead" / second tenor ... and I am ignoring the evidence that I am actually now an aging baritone.... In my mind, I am still Steve Perry.

Are you looking for others to perform with...?

Absolutely. Singing with an acoustic guitar is the-most-fun-you-can-have-with-your-clothes-on.

Do you like to write songs?

Not so much.


I am a less-than-mediocre guitarist but an experienced singer -- obsessed with the music of Dan Fogelberg, Harry Chapin, Gordon Lightfoot, James Taylor, Steve Goodman, Eva Cassidy, The Cottars. Put me next to an acoustic guitarist and life is good!
