Over the last thirty-six years, Johnny has guided some of the most successful artists through their careers. In addition to producing Baton Rouge Blues Week, Johnny runs the recording label and marketing company Club Lousianne, music publisher Ertis Music, audio/video post facility Main Street Studios, and Pal Productions for producing events and representing talent.

In this interview, Johnny talks about how the music industry works, how it should work, reminds us of the old saying that the Blues and Jazz had a baby — it was Rock ‘n Roll — and lets us in on his playlist this week: be sure to check out Raful Neal and family.
