Rockin’ Johnny Burgin debuted on Delmark records in the late 90’s as a precocious guitar slinger who was learning from and touring with Chicago blues masters such as Pinetop Perkins, Sam Lay, Billy Boy Arnold, Taildragger, Jimmy Burns and more. Now he’s based in the Bay area, touring over 250 nights a year promoting his latest CD,”Neoprene Fedora”. Johnny was nominated for a BMA for “Howlin’ at Greaseland” in 2017 for Best Traditional Blues CD.

Elvin Bishop said of him ” R.J. plays Chicago Blues–his guitar style is raw and rude and real. On the vocal side, I can hear a little touch of Junior Parker, a little Magic Sam, but mostly just a nice original style. He’s damn good!”

“While today’s blues has more than its share of flashy guitar gunslingers, Rockin’ Johnny Burgin dives into the music with more depth, heart and mind than any hotshot soloist. He embraces the entire blues tradition, not just the familiar Delta–Chicago refrains, but also the West Coast jump of his adopted California home.”
