One of the most iconic personalities in a city overflowing with exceptional characters, Johnny Vidacovich is among the city’s elite in terms of his musical prowess, creative collaborations, and unmistakable charisma. Over his long and illustrious career, Johnny has shared the stage with a veritable Hall of Fame of New Orleans musicians, including James Booker, Professor Longhair, George Porter Jr., and of course, Astral Project, a cornerstone of the New Orleans Jazz scene since the early 1970’s.

Whether as a private instructor to countless students over the years, as a member of the faculty at Loyola University’s School of Music, or as the namesake of the Vidacovich Music Workshop, which he founded in 2006 with his wife, Deborah, Johnny has fueled the creative minds of New Orleans’ past, present, and future.
