LIVE AT SCHMIDT’S COMMONS: Johnny Showcase
June 8, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
We’re excited to welcome for the first time in the Piazza at Schmidt’s Commons, Johnny Showcase!!
Johnny Showcase is an electrifying experience. A 10-piece absurdist soul outfit based in Philadelphia, it is an innovative, joyful tour-de-force that blissfully toes the line between performance art and a psychedelic soul revival. Carrying the torch of our funk-rock pioneers, they have gained a massive following and propelled Johnny to something that of a funky Philly folk hero legend.
Johnny Showcase is a sweaty, charismatic showman from Rhode Island who is equal parts Andy Kaufman and Prince. Surrounding him is a rag tag group of performers, including spiritual adviser Rumi Kitchen, two vacuous vocalists collectively named The Truth, and knife sharp backing band the Mystic Ticket.
