MUSIC, MAGIC, AND MISCHIEF

REFLECTING ON MY MOST RECENT TOUR WITH
THE BADNESS

 

Hey everyone! I just had a great tour with my band of cosmic space monsters "The Badness" featuring the incredible Shaun Brown on vocals, T.C. Lunsford ripping it on bass, and our amazing new drummer Matt Salvo. We had a great run in The Caribbean and finally made our way to New Orleans.

 

Check out my Facebook page for some great pictures of our most recent bouts of mischief and crazy adventures.

NEW STAGE SHOW: THE EVOLUTION OF THE BLUES

 

Keep on the look out for an explosive, hot new show that the incredible Shaun Brown and I recently produced and performed on a ship in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. It's going to be wild. Scroll to the bottom right corner of the page to see some video snippets!

"You cannot beat a river into submission.You can only surrender to it's current and use it's power as your own."

OMG! I'M ON NETFLIX! 

 

Well... something I recorded is on NETFLIX. Multi-dimensional artist Freelamour and I recorded one of her songs together a few years ago and now that very recording is on Spike Lee's new Netflix show "She's Gotta Have It"! The song is called "Little Girl" and you can hear it featured on Episode 5.

 

We had an absolute blast working on the track together and I'm the dude playing the guitar, bass, shakers, darbuka and djembe drums on it.

 

If you haven't checked her out, go hear Freelamour on Spotify right now! Her voice is brilliant and her music is out of this world.

 THE BORDERMAN SAGA 

This epic 8 concept-album-series is now in the works! The story follows the misadventures of a clumsy but compassionate character and his strange friends through the Earth, the Netherworld, the far reaches of Deep Space, alternate dimensions, Celestial Realms, Causal Realms and more. 

 

Each album will have a story-telling medium attached to it. This includes a book, comic book, stage production show, two movies, a fully immersive and interactive live dance and percussion spectacular, an augmented reality album/experience that changes with each listen, and lots of interactive puzzles and abstract imagery for the final album which is sort of a brain teaser and meditation as well.

SEEKING MANUFACTURING:

HELP ME MAKE MUSIC HISTORY.

I've recently patented an exciting new type of finger-tip guitar slide. I'm looking for the most efficient way to mass produce it so I can get it into stores and share it with the world.

 

Contact me at jonnymantra@gmail.com if you're interested in getting involved in bringing this creation to life with me.
