What are people saying about Johnny Boots and The Johnny Boots Band?
"There are only so many places blues-rock can go, but Johnny Boots visits all of them on his latest self-released effort, “All or Nothing.” Boots — aka Fairfield resident John Giannicchi — shows his chops on guitar as he and his band blow through 9 solid originals and four classic covers, each with an azure tint. They’re fine musicians in fine form, and they’re clearly having a blast, which means there’s an excellent chance that you will too."
- Eric R. Danton, Hartford Courant
"Johnny Boots 'All Or Nothing' is a seriously well performed album with cutting edge guitar work. Johnny's lyrics bring you straight to the scene of the crime!! Well written, well played gutsy, bold and full of life. I really, really like this band and their new album 'All Or Nothing'! Stick that in your fuse box!!!"
- Sonny Rock, WRIP 97.9 FM & 97.5 FM
"Here's a guitar player/vocalist, who can write his own songs and play with the fire of a Jimi Hendrix or Stevie Ray Vaughan, a real deal "Italian Stallion," when it comes to riding the blue note into the stratosphere to entertain the heavens and the rest of us music fans here on Mother Earth!!"
Bill Nolan DJ of "Antique Blues" WPKN
"Johnny Boots Band, 'Everybody's Got to Eat' (Boot in Yur Ear) - Fairfield guitarist Johnny 'Boots' Giannicchi burns up the fretboard on a set of blues-rock originals, a funkified version of Jimi Hendrix's "Fire" and a rock-solid cover of 'Crosscut Saw' (recorded by Albert King, among others). Giannicchi plays with a thick, dirty guitar tone sure to thrill electric blues fans, and sings in a voice that fits with the blues without ever sounding forced. He swings, he shuffles and he rocks, making 'Eat' tasty indeed.
