About - Listen to Audio - Watch
… Midnite Johnny has released CDs including Lyin’ Eyes and Boogie and Blues Review. His material has also been included on the compilation CD ‘Showcasing the Blues – Vol 2’ with Lyin’ Eyes was featured in the soundtrack of the HBO movie Suicide Blonde.
Midnite Johnny’s Lyin’ Eyes transports the listener to a front row seat at the House of Blues. This CD, which was recorded, mixed and mastered in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, is an excellently produced and arranged blues CD. All the typical blues hooks are present and each track has enough variety to make it sound different.
Not only as a producer and arranger, but lead guitarist and vocalist, Midnite Johnny plays great lead blues guitar riffs, especially on his songs Trouble Fallin’ Down (like rain) and Lyin’ Eyes.
"Lyin Eyes is not your regular, run of the mill blues. There is a great show of diversity which absolutely makes this CD a welcome addition to any blues collection”.

Inspired by West Side Chicago blues greats like Magic Sam and Otis Rush, John Morana plays with plenty of firepower, but with lots of restrain too. It’s that tension that makes his paying so affecting, particularly on slow-burn-ers like “Double Trouble” A veteran of the South Florida blues scene, Morana played beside guitarist Harvey Mandel (Canned Heat) in the house band of the Blue Midnite Pub, Fort Lauderdale.

Midnite Johnny proceeds to tear his Fender Sratocaster into a set of relentless blues, something he has done for a long time now. For the money, Morana may be the most powerful blues guitarist in South Florida.
