Johnny Caps Bio 

    Johnny Cap was born during a very interesting time in the music world. He grew up with influences ranging from; country, classic, big band, rock and roll, and everything in between. "The Cap", Johnny’s father, himself was known for his singing and harp playing. One of Caps fondest memories is that of both his Mom and Dad singing together just for fun. Both Johnny Cap and his brother Alfred began playing their first instruments at a very young age; (basically as soon as they could hold it) that instrument was the accordion. For many years Johnny's main instrument professionally was and still is the accordion.

   A multi-instrumentalist Johnny plays the Accordion, Guitar, Harp, Ukulele, Flute and Keyboards. He is also a singer / songwriter with a unique sound, all his own.

   At times he can be found playing alongside his friend and co-player Hap Moor.
The two of them they have re-defined an old acoustic blues style. The sound of a "forgotten time" they reincarnate with both Hap's finger picking and slide work on the Dobro Guitar and Cap's Acoustic Harp playing. To fill out the sound they switch off with singing, "It's how they fill the monacour" it’s a style of raw acoustic blues like you've never heard before.

   Johnny Caps was the house bands harp player at "The Wagon Wheel Cafe" every Sunday night. It was a great time and I got to know a lot of good people at "The Wagon Wheel Cafe" in Bergenfield, N.J. You can also catch up with him some Monday evenings at "Scotland Yard", in Hoboken, N.J., again either having a beer and listening, or doing his thing on the stage, most times just listening or playing one of his many instruments.

   As long as Johnny Caps schedule permits you can now find him almost every Sunday night at "The Doghouse Saloon" in Washington Township,N.J. where he plays in the house band. The door is open to an Acoustic open stage with his friend who runs the jam, Fuzzy Rob. The jam encompasses musicians, singers, songwriters, & stupid pet tricks!!! Whatever you do come and do it at the Doghouse Saloon.

   Johnny Cap is a member of an eight piece band called "Fishcakes and the Fried Daddies" which is a Jug Band with a sound all its own. He plays the accordion, and also sings in this band. This is where he met his current band member that he is playing a duet with, featuring everything from classic standards to Jazz, Rocking Rhythms and Blues. Johnny Cap plays Accordion, Harmonica, and Guitar depending on the type of music that is being played. Johnny Cap is accompanied in this two piece band by Judy who also is a multi-instrumentalist playing Guitar, Bass, Keyboards, and singing again depending on what instrument is needed for the gig.

   Check out her bio listed below. Together they are at the core of an inspired old new sound for any occasion big or small. Like Judy says "No job too big or too small!" Johnny Cap likes this band because it can be expanded from two or three, to four or five if the need arises adding a drummer or any other instrument depending on the needs or the budget of the people hiring the band.

   Johnny Cap supports the New Jersey Jazz and Blues Foundation, so if you keep your eyes open you might find him appearing just about anywhere in the state of N.J. Johnny Cap, an experienced teacher and mentor is often heard to say "Get out and listen to live music of any kind!" Of course, one of his personal favorites happens to be the Blues.

Judy's Bio 


   Judy is a musician, songwriter and producer. She learned to play the guitar at the age of 10, inspired by her mother who played the piano.

   At age 12, Judy began taking drum lessons in addition to the guitar and joined her first band playing in school and around her hometown in Central New Jersey. By age 19 she picked up the bass guitar and formed a Rock band with her close friends.



   By age 21, Judy had been invited to play with a local Jazz-Fusion group influenced by Robin Trower, Billy Cobham, Herbie Hancock, Stanley Clarke, Grover Washington, Jr. and the like. The band "Winslow" could be seen playing the local clubs and restaurants every week.


   Wanting to explore other opportunities, Judy moved to Northern New Jersey and performed with the all-female band "Forbidden Fruit" playing Top 40 Disco. Seeking management and a full-time career in music, she moved once again to Long Island, NY where she recorded and performed with an all-original, all-female Rock band "Scarlet Fever" to which she contributed some of her original songs.  After playing the NJ/NY/CT circuit, including a tour to Nova Scotia, the band members went their separate ways.

   With a desire to record her own original music, Judy attended the Center for Media Arts in New York City where she earned a degree in Audio Engineering. Today she is a freelance musician and is recording her solo CD. She has written, arranged, played and is producing a lifetime of material soon to be available online.


   In the meantime, Judy is accompanying Johnny Cap, an accordion player whom she met while playing with "Fishcake and The Fried Daddies" a Jug Band! Yes believe if or not, a Jug band! As you can see, Judy is a well-rounded musician whose accomplishments are never ending.
