Johnnie Ward, originally from Portland, has performed with bands including the PH Phactor Jug Band, and opened for Moby Grape, The Grateful Dead, Pentangle, The Doors, and several other famous groups. Johnnie was part of the movement that resurrected the blues venue in Portland in 1970, and was the first act to play The White Eagle, which was the first post-war Portland Blues club.
The group delivers an original blues sound. Johnnie often accompanies the group on harmonica and saxophone. Some of his tunes are available on myspace.
