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'.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
