A New Jersey native, organist John Ginty has toured and recorded with artists such as JEWEL, SANTANA, MATHEW SWEET, SHERYL CROW, RYAN ADAMS, BAD RELIGION, CITIZEN COPE, and was an original member of ROBERT RANDOLPH and the FAMILY BAND, in which John received two Grammy Nominations, as well as a Gospel Music Award for Urban Album of the year, 2003. In that same year, John also appeared on the Blind Boys of Alabama's Grammy Award winner 'Higher Ground'. His discography spans over a decade, and demonstrates his eclectic influences and unique sounds on keys. In early 2005, John put together his own band, made up of some of the finest musicians from the local New Jersey music scene. In rehearsals, the band developed a unique sound...Hammond organ driven, improvisational, well-crafted American songwriting laced with Latin rhythms, gospel and southern soul guitar...described once as 'Outlaw Gospel'. In October, the band embarked on it's first run of shows, teaming up with San Francisco based supergroup Jemimah Puddleduck comprised of Mark Karan (Bob Weir, Ratdog), John Molo (Phil Lesh, John Fogerty), J.T. Thomas (Bruce Hornsby), and Bob Gross (Albert King). The tour was a huge success for the band, and has since inspired JG and the Band to pursue this music, and take it on the road. The bands double-live album 'Fireside Live' was released in March 2006.
