“If you’re looking for high-energy entertainment, grounded in original songwriting, heart and soul, I recommend The Johnnys for a rockin’ good time.”
- Laurie Sarkadi, Editor EDGEYK magazine, Producer, Singer-songwriter, Yellowknife, 2014 -
The Johnnys are an Ontario-based rock’n’roll band founded by spouses Veronica Johnny (lead vocals/ manager/ producer/ writer) and Dave Johnny (drums/ producer/ writer). The duo’s early recordings are more punk influenced, characterized by fun, up-tempo songs while later releases have a classic-rock feel.
The Johnnys appear live as a full band, delivering rowdy, high-energy, humour-filled performances. They’ve played across Canada, been featured on TV and film and shared stages with such luminaries as Geordie Johnson, Bif Naked, Stevie Salas, Bruce Cockburn, Keith Secola & Crystal Shawanda.
Veronica’s Cree heritage is reflected in some of the band’s lyric content, with indigenous influences on topics such as the environment, social justice and political change.
