Album Notes
Kentucky’s original “Rock ‘n Roll Repertory Orchestra,” the Johnson Brothers Band specializes in performing meticulously reproduced renditions of challenging large-band material rarely heard in clubs or concerts. They play “the hard stuff.” From rock to funk, blues to jazz fusion, the range and depth of their repertoire is unrivaled in the region.

During its 16-year history, the band has performed The Beatles’ “Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band” and “White Album” in their entirety, served as the sole live orchestration for theatrical productions of “Hair” and “Jesus Christ Superstar,” and showcased evenings devoted entirely to the music of George Harrison, Steely Dan, the Allman Brothers and the year 1969. It previously played “Tommy” in a University of Kentucky production in 1997. So accurate are the band’s performances that The Idea Festival, a four-day conference of “extraordinary thinkers,” selected them to play at the reception for Sir George Martin following his presentation of "The Making of the Greatest Album of All Time: Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band." Now, that’s an endorsement! In addition, the band has produced a CD of original material called “Tastes Like Chicken,” a powerful combination of funk, rock, jazz, blues and Latin influences.

Members include Bill Fairchild (bass), Jim Gleason (guitar/guitar synth), Dave Hamon (drums/keyboards), Steve Pasquariello (guitar/keyboards), Marty Walker (drums/flute) and Harold Young (keyboards).

Tastes Like The Whole Damn Barnyard!
These cats know how to play & most importantly, they know when not to play. This is some very tasty stuff. One of the biggest joys 'bout listening to this CD, is that each song is a little stylistically different then the one before. And these guys do something that a LOT of bands need to do today...don't worry 'bout no formula, don't worry 'bout no trends. Just play some good music...PERIOD!!! If you like it Funky, Rockin', Bluesy, Jazzy & you like great music & songs, you'll like this band & this CD.

Get Funky
Lots of great playing here, with good songs, particularly Get Lucky, Tonight, One Step and Uncle Charlie with its opening 5/4 groove. Funky as the "other" Brothers Johnson with influences from Little Feat and the Eagles. Good stuff

tastes like chicken
LOVE the versatility of the music! A little bit of something for everyone. Surew would be hard to pick one genre to label this on my ipod!I LOVE IT all! Definitely woth the buy - glad I did!

KY Chicken = dash of blues + a pinch of Steely Dan = The JBB Funki Special!
These boys deliver the goods. If you want funk, you got "Uncle Charlie", ya wannna take it slow and easy?
The warmth and jazz feel of "Montego" or "Tonight" will bring you to tears. "Dog House" is already a regional
hit covered on the country charts (presented here in it's original funk blues format). As good a CD as you can buy
without the 11 "herbs and spices". It's simple: get this one. This group IS the total package. Check out the website too, fun stuff!

Pros at Work
Great tunes, great players, great disc. Blues, funk, and even 60's pop all shine in the hands of these talented guys. Standout tracks include the bluesy "One Step", the hilarious and funky "Doghouse", the 12-string shimmer of "Just Turned Out That Way", and "Montego", with it's Steely Dan-influenced feel.


Smart and Sassy!
Catchy tunes and irreverant songwriting...what a great combination! Eagles meets Little Feat meets Blues Brothers meets Frank get the idea. Just got back from a long roadtrip where this CD got me through miles of hot desert with my toes tapping and a smile on my face.

Jan Penfield

We have heard these very talents guys for years. Just had to have a CD!!! And boy, I'm glad I got this one!!!! Great rock, just like I was brought up with!!! Hope these fellers stay around forever!!!!! Give this CD a chance. You'll not regret it!!

Taste Like - Anthing But Chicken
I sat down for dinner with the this CD. Thankfully it tasted
like anything but chicken - and I like chicken. This for me
is a Red Meat, Potato Lovin' Beer Drinkin' Heck of a Band.
I love the blend of the Hammond Organ and Slide Guitar in
You Never Come. One Step just floored me. Here are a bunch
of white guys playing the blues like they know what it's all
about - like George Carlin says: it's not enough to know
what notes to play, you've got to know why they need to be
played. These guys do! The writing is diverse. It has a
great jazz feel and a sense of humor - Steely Dan like. It
was a wonderful meal. Keep up the good work guys. I hope
we can eat together again soon. Listeners should stick
around in the last track for the after dinner mint.
