WEST MILFORD Uncorked Wine and Spirits will be presenting Johnny Powers 3 on Saturday, March 31, at 10 p.m.
JP3 was formed by drummer John Powers. Powers has been playing drums and percussion for over 30 years. Always listening to American music as a youngster, he went to Ireland at the age of 12 and was heavily influenced by punk rock and new wave from the UK and built a great interest in this genre. He began to develop his talent as a self-taught drummer, playing in the 1980s and has played in several pop, rock, blues, rockabilly and punk rock bands in the New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania area and continues to play in bands of the same style.
JP3 features Sonny Kenn, who was awarded the 2007 Lifetime Achievement Award at The Asbury Music Awards. He opened for Jerry Lee Lewis in 1965 and Guy Kurshenoff. He has been burning up the rockabilly scene with his upright bass for nearly 20 years.
Come join us for a night of RandR, rockabilly, blues, country and surf at Uncorked Wines and Spirits, 9 Marshall Hill Road, West Milford. For more information, go to www.uncorkedwinesandspirits.com.
