Ernie Johnson From Detroit

Cincinnati, OH

Artist Bio:

After playing in various projects in and around Cincinnati for the past few years, local musicians Collin Thompson, Brendan Blumer, Drew Loftspring, Eric Osmanoglu, Wayne Kilgard, Nathan Lewis and Dusty Bryant came together in 2015 to create the funkified 7-piece band, Ernie Johnson From Detroit. Though they just recently brought their unique brand of afrobeat/funk/jazz music out of the basement and onto the stage, Ernie Johnson From Detroit has quickly become a crowd favorite in and around Cincinnati. The band’s horn-heavy, melodic, groovy sound is sure to get show-goers moving. Since forming, the band has played various shows in the area including a recent sold out show with Moon Hooch, and has recorded a 5-song demo entitled “Who is Ernie Johnson?”.
