Moontown Brewing Company is thrilled to welcome The Jeremiah Johnson Band on Friday, June 14th for their 2nd show at our brewery.
The midwest has been gifted with a great new torch-bearer of Southern rock blues in Jeremiah Johnson. Born and raised in St. Louis, Johnson has a rich blues heritage that runs as deep as the Mississippi. He picked up the guitar at the age of six, and after spending 10 years as a young man in Texas, has came home to roost with a bit of that desert grit on his fingers, hot sauce on his breath, and a working man’s aesthetic — all of which carry through to his songwriting and performance.
“Jeremiah Johnson delivers biting blues rock with his commanding guitar attack bolstered by his hearty pipes and a crack backing band… This is grade ‘A’ primo stuff.”
— Blues Blast Magazine 8/30/2018
“Jeremiah Johnson is the real deal, a honky-tonk hero for the blues just like Waylon was for outlaw country.”
— Goldmine Magazine – October 2018
“Jeremiah Johnson serves it up hard and nasty, St Louis juke joint blues punctuated by Johnson’s piercing Albert King riffs. ”
— Grant Britt – Blues Blast Magazine 1/19/2019
With the release of their sixth album, the Jeremiah Johnson Band delivers their material from a place of confident self-awareness, and the charts have rewarded their effort: they have received a #5 billboard chart ranking and received two nominations for both “Best Contemporary Blues Album” and “Best Funk Song” from the Independent Blues Awards.
The concert will be held in our event space, The 1915 Room, and is 21+ only. Delicious Moontown beer will be for sale all evening and tickets are required ($7 in advance, or $10 at the door). Doors for the concert will open at 7pm, and the show starts at 8pm. Moontown’s brewpub (on the other side of the building) will remain open to the public until 11pm with food service until 10pm.
Come and enjoy a night of incredible live music from “one of today’s premiere blues artists” (- American Blues Scene), and check out our beautiful brewery, located in a historic gymnasium in Whitestown, Indiana.
