This Holiday season I stopped at Final Score Sports Bar & Grill for their Christmas party and what a good time it was! This place was hopping all night long! There was dancing, laughing, eating and drinking to everyone’s content! DJ Ghost was in the house playing great music and giving away many prizes….like Diamond Stud Earrings and an HDTV …with just a raffle ticket-all FREE. There was no cover and the buffet had all home-made Italian food-also FREE! Infact for every special occasion, Karen does the cooking and what a great cook she is!

In an area flooded with cover bands, it’s refreshing when you come across musicians who put an original spin into all they do. For this issue, of “In the Spotlight” we wanted to feature someone who offers a little bit of everything, from Classic Rock to R&B/Funk, and who has the musical prowess to handle everything else in between. This is why we decided to feature John McNutt!
John is a veteran musician from the Philly area and has been playing in this area for many years. Managed by Al Geary and Shore Bets Agency, John has become one of their premier performers. I spoke to Al about him and he told me “John McNutt is one of the most talented and versatile musicians I have ever had the pleasure of representing. People like John make my job satisfying.” I can certainly understand why Al said this. In addition to John’s superb skills as a musician, he is down to earth, gracious, and very genuine. John has had a great career so far and has been playing in some of the best rooms including the Borgata in Atlantic City, Seacrets in Ocean City, MD and The Bridgeport Ribhouse in Bridgeport PA. His versatility as a musician allows him to offer venues everything from a solo acoustic performance to a full band sound. And it doesn’t stop there! In addition to playing covers in pretty much every genre, John also does a great show featuring everyone’s favorite Irish music for St. Patrick’s Day.
Truth be told, John’s favorite thing to play is Classic Rock. You gotta love him for that! CCR, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, Stevie Wonder…these are some of the artists that carved their place into the history of Rock and Roll forever because of the great music they created. John knows this is what people want to hear. He puts on a live performance full of energy and passion, because he simply loves what he does. So much so, that most of time, he doesn’t even go to a venue with a set list. Instead, he will “feel out” the crowd and play to them, rather than just going down a pre-conceived set list. He has an uncanny sense for what people want to hear and he succeeds in pleasing everyone, every show, every time. John McNutt is a performer and an entertainer, and one of the best you will ever have the pleasure of seeing. He puts on one HELL of a performance…no enhancements, no sequencing…just honest, raw talent that is fun to watch and full of the type of energy that only great LIVE music can create.
If you crave SOLID rock and roll played well and with the professionalism that only a seasoned musician will offer, then you owe it to yourself to go check out John McNutt and his band. Here are some of his upcoming dates:
First Sunday of every month: Bridgeport Ribhouse, Bridgeport, PA
Every Wednesday of every month: Vintage Bar and Grill in Abington, PA
Dec 10: The Borgata, Atlantic City, NJ
Dec 11: Seacrets, Ocean City MD
Dec 23: The Bridgeport Ribhouse, Bridgeport, PA (Christmas Party featuring John & The Mile High Club)
Christmas Day: The Borgata, Atlantic City NJ
New Year’s Eve: RiRa Irish Pub, Bethesda, MD
You can also visit John’s site at www.johnmcnutt.com or friend him on Facebook at www.facebook.com/john.mcnutt. To book John for your venue or private party, contact Al Geary at Shore Bets 215-884-4357.
