ERIC JOHNSON! The Treasure Tour 2023
September 30, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Eric Johnson has been traveling on a prolific musical odyssey over the course of more than four decades. Along the way, his creations have encompassed repertoire that cross pollinate genres which include rock, blues, jazz, fusion, soul, folk, new-age, classical and even country. Inevitably, E.J. says it best himself in sharing, “It really boils down to the music and the song at the end of the day,” he explains. “If it doesn’t have that it gets boring for me. The most important thing for me is to grow musically and make a more expansive and meaningful artistic statement with every new project.”
This will be Eric Johnson’s first appearance at gorgeous Asbury Hall in downtown Buffalo, as part of the 64-date national Treasure Tour 2023 throughout next year!
During the pandemic, the Grammy-winning guitarist, vocalist, composer, and multi-instrumentalist has been busy releasing weekly, donation-based, virtual “Mini-Lessons” benefitting food banks across the country and working in the studio on previously unreleased tracks and new recordings. The currently untitled new record is scheduled for release later this year.
Throughout his career, Johnson has approached music as a healing force, a way to enhance a listener’s consciousness, and conjure joy and inspiration. More than a year into the pandemic, he reflects that this approach has become reinforced and more enhanced.
The 2023 Treasure Tour will feature some of these previously unreleased gems, new songs, plus plenty older favorites. The band will include Tom Brechtlein on drums, and Roscoe Beck on bass.
