The Johnnys appearing on national television.


Rock’n’roll duo The Johnnys kick off their fall schedule with performances to be aired on national television.

Interviews and live footage from the band’s performance at the first-annual iNative Festival, held Sept. 20-21 in Toronto, are being featured on Arbor Live, an upcoming production by Arbor Television. Music by The Johnnys is also being included in future episodes of Prairie Dog Productions’ series, Mixed Blessings. APTN will be broadcasting both Arbor Live and Mixed Blessings.

The Johnnys are slated to appear on the nationally-televised Aboriginal Peoples Choice Music Awards in Winnipeg, Nov. 7, where they have been nominated for three APC Awards: Best Rock Album; Best New Artist; and Best Duo or Group. Online voting for the awards ends Oct. 17 at Their performance coincides with Winnipeg club dates Nov. 6 and 8 as part of the Manito Ahbee Festival.

“We are so grateful to have this opportunity and for the support of the people. We receive emails everyday from voters all over the world and the response has been overwhelmingly positive,” says lead vocalist and guitarist Veronica Johnny.

The Johnnys have also been nominated in the Best Engineer-Producer category of the Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards, being held in Toronto Nov. 28, for work on their 2007 debut CD, I Like It A Lot.

In other news, Redskin Magazine has announced The Johnnys as headliners of its Halloween bash in Brantford, Oct. 31 and as a feature in the upcoming issue.

Veronica also attended the Songs Above the Treeline voice-intensive workshop held in Banff, Sept. 24-27. A gathering of female Aboriginal artists from across Canada, the event featured participants performing the traditional Strong Women’s Song in Ralston Hall at the Banff Centre for the Performing Arts.

“We really connected as a group and I feel stronger and more spiritual. We laughed. We cried. We sang. It was transcending,” says Veronica.

The Johnnys are presently based in Toronto, having returned from a summer in the Northwest Territories, where they performed and recorded demos for their upcoming second CD release.
