Pitt-Johnstown Program Board presents: JOHN RUSH, the Human iPod

John Rush takes you on a musical journey like no other one-man show can. Singing and playing guitar  / bass / harmonica / piano / saxophone / banjo / keyboard and percussion John Rush plays his own original music and songs you know. If you think you've seen this before, you're wrong. John Rush is not just another singer/songwriter! Wowing audiences with his guitar work and capturing them with his voice and lyrics John Rush won Campus Entertainer of the Year and Campus Awards Musician of the Year! 

 

John has opened for: Matt Kearney, Fuel, Eve 6, Edwin McCain, Keller Williams, Rob Thomas (Matchbox 20), The Whalers, 

John Rush has a much larger sound than most solo musicians.  Taking a unique approach, John performs with the help of a loop machine that allows him to record a guitar "loop" on the fly and then play lead, bass, harmonica, piano, and percussion over it.  John beats on his guitar, plays bass lines, and expressive guitar leads that impress the most critical listeners.  This allows him to sound like a whole band even though it's just John and a guitar.  "I do this all live," says John. "People always ask me if this is prerecorded music, but it's not.  I think if you go hear live music it should be live.  I rely on my own ability to perform; the technical effects are only there to enhance what I do." 

Originally from Huntsville, Alabama, John first learned to play guitar at the age of twelve. After playing in jazz and rock bands through high school John went to Athens, Georgia on a classical guitar scholarship to the University of Georgia. After leaving Georgia John moved to Nashville, TN where he quickly became a must-see show in the bar scene before taking his show on the road. 

Averaging more than 200 dates a year, John Rush is making a name for himself in the college campus and club circuit. With a set list that covers hundreds of different bands, John Rush plays originals and/or covers depending upon what the audience requests.  John has been called a " Human iPod " because he can play  more than 80 hours of music upon request!  That means you could hear John play for 80 hours straight and never hear a song repeated, or you could see 40 different 2 hour shows and never hear the same song twice!
