New York native and long time Michigan resident John Latini, a 3-time Detroit Blues Champion, is riding the wave from his last release and 5th Cd, his first full length blues recording “The Blues Just Makes Me Feel Good”. Within 10 days of its release to radio, it was included in Goldmine’s ‘Cool Rootsy Releases’ of 2016 and garnered 41 shining reviews including one in No Depression. Debuting at #12 on the RMR Top 50 Blues Albums Chart, #5 on the Top 50 Contemporary Blues Chart and # 1 on the Michigan All-Genre Chart the same week, it remained on the top 50 Blues Album Chart for 7 months in 2017, and took the #23 spot for the Top 200 Contemporary Blues Album releases of 2017.
And as good as that is, he is a dynamite live performer. As a solo artist or with a full band, John is a performing force to be reckoned with. He is engaging, funny, an incredible musician and celebrated songwriter. His original songs and music connects with fans across many demographics and he is always guaranteed returning fans at venues where he has previously been seen.
It only gets better with his band, The Flying Latini Brothers, as they soar through performances without a net!
