John Vento is often called a chameleon in the Pittsburgh music scene; The front man for the high-energy, hard-rockin’ bands, The Businessmen, and the Nied’s Hotel Band, is also known for his introspective solo recordings.
His current release, “Love, Lust & Other Wreckage,” is a masterful blend of his eclectic influences delivered with the raw emotions necessary to tell the almost all true autobiographical story of his love life and how it has been affected by his first love, the stage. John's story has been so artistically crafted that it gained the attention of renowned playwright/lyricist, Amy Hartman. Her rendition of John's saga will be shared as a stage play featuring music from the album on September 13th & 14th at the Oaks Theater in Oakmont just outside of Pittsburgh.
Core collaborators on LLOW: musician & producer David Granati, songwriter Bert Lauble, and singer/songwriter Cherylann Hawk. Special guests: Cheryl Rinovato, Joffo Simmons, and Wil E. Try, as well as a few of David Granati's family members, Joey, Hermie and Jules.
When performing live John is accompanied by: Cherylann Hawk–Vocals, Ian Arthurs-Guitar, Sal Monteverde-Guitar & Vocals, Phil Vento–Bass, Tim Hadley-Keys & Vocals, Lou Ross-Drums. Many members of his crew have been with him for more than a decade; and it’s easy to understand why, as Vento consistently showers them with appreciation and accolades. “Without my collaborators, I would not have accomplished anything."
