Johnny Bongos


A mixed bag of random music that pops out, nothing deliberate or premeditated. Just decided to share.







What is music to you? What does it give you?

Music is a release to me, a chance to release the weird that is in my head.

What is your music dream?

No dreams, just happy to play.

If you could change the world - what would you start with?


Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

"Popcorn" by Hot Butter (Stan Free)

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Too many to mention, I love tons of music in all genres.

What inspires you to make music?

Need to create, the cresting something from nothing is very satisfying.

What is the message you want to send with your music?

Have fun

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

Overjoyed and grateful

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

I believe we live in a time where there are some of the most talented musicians in history. The ability of reaching a vast audience has never been easier. That being said, I don't believe music caries the same amount of importance to some of it's intended audience, music has become more of a commodity rather than a necessity as it once was. Improving the opportunity of a musician to make a living at their craft is the main complaint I hear from the musicians I know and work with.

What do you think of Drooble?

It is fantastic, I have a friend on here who has been telling me how great it was. i am sorry it has taken me so long.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

When musicians browbeat or belittle each other.

Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

Yes, by seeing and supporting bands play out live and buying their media and merch from them.

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

Social media savvy and the ability to self promote

Share some awesome artists that we’ve never heard of.

Gort vs Goom, great band from Denver.
