Have Guitars - Will Travel This project came about in response to the hundreds of emails from people all over the world, who love to dance. We've heard from several Dance Instructors and Dance Clubs, requesting more dance, dance dance songs. It's also a "tribute" to some of the great places in the world that have invited us to perform for them. With that in mind - I've assembled some of the very best musicians in the Northwest to play on this CD. These musicians all enjoy a successful career on their own - and I am truly humbled to have them do a project like this, with me. So put on those dancin' shoes and let's get it on. We've featured Jive, Swing, Salsa, Latin, Blues and even a few Ballads for the incurable romantics among your ranks. Also - Keep those emails coming folks - we love to hear from you! Jesse Lee Johnson Bio: Jesse has worked almost every venue from Las Vegas to Reno to Chicago. 'Those casino gigs could be tough.' says Jesse. 'You had to read all the charts for the different shows. I've met and worked with people like Glen Campbell, Fats Domino, Bobby Darin, Buddy Holley, Roger Miller, Little Richard and even the great Chuck Berry.' 'The unusual gigs were things like playing background music for an elephant act, or playing banjo behind a comedy team. Still, all in all - I wouldn't trade the experience for anything.' 'Most of the time it was great fun with great people. And I will always be thankful to those wonderful artists who gave me work. They made my musical career a reality'.
