[Interview] John 5 talks to the Philly Voice about returning to the birth-place of the “It’s Alive” album

John 5 Rob Fenn

John 5 and The Creatures will make a return run to Sellersville, PA, to play in the venue that is the birth-place of the “It’s Alive” album. He speaks to the Philly Voice about how it came to be, what he’s learnt from the many front-men he has supported and more.

From Philly Voice:

He [John 5] was surprised when a Sellersville sound engineer asked him two years ago if he would like his show recorded.

“I said, ‘Yes, no problem. That would be cool.’ It was a privilege to record at the Sellersville Theater. It’s so close to Philadelphia, but it’s just outside the city and it has its own vibe going on. It’s a charming place. I love playing the intimate venues with great acoustics.”

[Review] John 5 and The Creatures are “absolutely masterful”.

John 5 and The Creatures review tour Ink19

John 5 and The Creatures review tour Ink19

Ink19.com were at The Social in Orlando, FL on February 1, to see John 5 and The Creatures on their “It’s Alive” tour.

The entire troupe was absolutely masterful – playing more precisely than most people can even think. For his part, J5 slayed ’em all – big guitars, little guitars, banjos too. And he wowed the faithful further when attacking an oil-filled, clear acrylic Telecaster with a violin bow, a la Jimmy Page. But he “closed” the deal with a unique, retina-searing, multi laser-shooting Telecaster. Truly impressive.”

[Review] John 5 and The Creatures slay the DNA Lounge

John 5 and The Creatures are currently on tour in support of their new album Season of the Witch, which came out on March 3rd.

Over the weekend, the band played at the DNA Lounge in San Francisco and SF Sonic were there to watch and review the show.

Making his way to the stage through the tightly compacted smaller venue at DNA, John 5 instantly generated an auditory tornado of extremely fast finger tapping and incredible super sweeps with a new song, “Guitars, Tits & Monsters.” The pale, painted, grim axeman stuns with his limitless capabilities for capturing every maneuver possible and with a diverse array of guitars to do so with his main rig being the very sleek signature Squire, the great golden J5 Telecaster perfectly equipped with the well-used secret weapon of the kill switch.”

[Review] Yesterdaze News reviews John 5 and The Creatures “killer” show at Tony V’s Garage

John 5 and The Creatures played the second show of the Season of the Witch tour at Tony V’s Garage in Everett, WA. Yesterdaze News were there to watch and gave this review:

The show was one killer guitar lick after another accompanied by wardrobe/accessory changes and of course multiple axe changes through out the show. There were many styles of guitars, each suited to the perfect song and a fun theatrical experience that comes from a John 5 show. There were lights, co2 cannons, masks, fog, light up guitars, a lava liquid filled guitar, tiny ones and banjo styles.”

[Review] Guitar Great John 5 Opens Solo Tour at Louie G’s

KISW Rock – 99.9 FM’s “Iron” Mike Savoia was at the opening night of the John 5 and The Creatures Season of the Witch tour which took place at Louie G’s in Fife, WA and gave this fantastic review of the 15 song set show:

Blasting through a 15 song set covering much of his solo catalog including a guitar solo, John 5 and the Creatures (Ian Ross on Bass, Logan Nix on Drums) were on fire the whole night jamming incredible complicated yet tasty ear sounds that kept you interested and not bored to a bunch of guys instrument wanking. These were instrumental rock greats.”
