The legendary “Secret Agent Man" Johnny Rivers has confirmed his first New York City Concert in over 25 years, for September 28th at B.B. King Blues Club & Grill. The special event, JOHNNY RIVERS Comes Home – “A 70th Birthday Celebration,” is a presentation of Hi-Fidelity Music and will feature an All-Star Band joining Rivers, including Will Lee, Jimmy Vivino and Rich Pagano from The Fab Faux. 

With 17 Gold records, 29 chart hits, two Grammy Awards and more than 30 million records sold, Johnny Rivers is a remarkable American rock and roll singer, songwriter, guitarist, and record producer. His styles include folk songs, blues, and revivals of old-time rock 'n' roll songs and some original material. Rivers' greatest success came in the mid- to late- 1960s with a string of hit songs (including the #1 hit “Poor Side of Town", “Summer Rain", and “Secret Agent Man"), but he has continued to record and perform to the present.

His major hits include Memphis, Maybelline, Mountain of Love, Seventh Son, Secret Agent Man, Poor Side of Town, Baby, I Need Your Lovin', Rockin' Pneumonia - Boogie Woogie Flu & Slow Dancin'.
