The Jonny Trash Super Group is a surprise collective of various musicians connected with the late Jonathan Hall. Known endearingly by his friends as Johnny Trash, this group will pay tribute to their friend who passed away suddenly earlier this year at the age of 44.
"We were deeply saddened along with the entire community by the sudden passing of Jonathan Hall,” says Terry Guiel, DBIA Executive Director. “Jon started the Hootenanny and organized it for seven years. On August 10th, you’ll see a hugely talented and dynamic performance from The Jonny Trash Super Group.”
"Jonny was all about getting stage time for local artists and bringing in bands from out of town that maybe you hadn't heard before,” says long-time friend Mike Judson. “Moving forward with this event, I think Jonny would love to see a continued effort being put into choosing great local artists to grace the Hunter Street stage. He'd want the organizers to take a chance on something weird and outside of the norm and give people an experience they were not expecting.”
