Johnny Hart and the Mess celebrate the history of rock n roll while paving the way for a new era. With influences from across the board, the band has its roots soaked in rock, but wanders off the beaten bath and delves into various veins of music and sound. Most fittingly is the "Alt Rock" nomenclature because it is so broadly defined. At any given point, the band can sound like a pop band, a blues band, a country band, a jam band or a funk band. Suppose it depends on the day, the night and the crowd.
Having shared the stage with Fitz and the Tantrums, Shaed, Grace Potter, The Sheepdogs, Andy Frasco, Neal Francis, Joey Harkum and many more, Johnny Hart and the Mess have solidified themselves as a " Soulfully urgent Alt Rock Powerhouse".
