Johnny Porrazzo:  Keyboard Player

As a keyboard player and singer, Johnny is known to his audiences and talent managers as the go-to guy when it comes to talent and delivery.

Johnny’s experience as a keyboard player started in his hometown of Youngstown, Ohio.  As a teenager, he showed tremendous talent and was hired as a keyboard player and backup singer for The Abraham Brothers gospel group.

From there, Johnny has toured internationally with various gospel groups and went on to record his own solo album, Porrazzo on the Polydor label.  The album tour featured Johnny as keyboard player and lead singer of his band, Porrazzo. 

Johnny has performed for sold-out concert halls across the globe.  His extensive work in Atlanta, Las Vegas, Nashville and Atlantic City have brought  him numerous accolades. 

“What a marvelous voice, honey.”  
—Lena Horne

“You’re going to be hearing a lot from this man.” 
—Merv Griffin

Most recently, Johnny has performed as featured entertainer and keyboard player for some of Atlanta’s most popular night spots and has been nicknamed “the man of 1000 songs” due to the fact that you can throw out the name of just about any song, and Johnny can play it.  By ear.  From memory.  Without cheats.  In a word, amazing.

Meeting planners nationwide book Johnny months, and sometimes years, in advance for their corporate events, tradeshows, fundraisers and galas. 

“Johnny’s like family to us.  For the past 15 years, he has been the keyboard player and lead singer in the band that entertains at the Autism Society gala in Atlanta.  With his professionalism, charisma and genuine musical talent, we can’t imagine holding this event without him.  Our patrons ask for him by name and some have even refused to attend if Johnny’s not there!” 
— Fred Abeles, Autism Society Gala Entertainment Chair

Event planners across the country rely on Johnny as their trusted resource when it comes to corporate meeting and tradeshow entertainment.  Not only because he is a tremendously talented keyboard player, but he also has a gift for public speaking.  There have been numerous events where Johnny has been invited to be featured entertainer, but winds up helping coordinate other musicians, comedians and dancers.

“For one of my clients we planned an employee dinner. The event was hosted at a venue in South Carolina where we hired Johnny to entertain our over 200 guests.  He was easy to work with during the planning process and on-site.  The guests enjoyed his enthusiasm and interaction with the crowd.  He was able to accommodate their requests without thought. I will definitely hire Johnny again!”
— Laura H. Jordan
