Johnny Case gig schedule

Was bummed to hear that pianist Johnny Case lost his first regular gig since the abrupt closing of Sardines a few months ago. Here are a few shows he has on tap so far. (I'm only including ones that are open to the public; he's also playing solo on Easter Sunday and Mother's Day at the Ridglea Country Club.)

Saturday/Sunday, March 10 & 11: Sheraton Hotel D/FW hosts the Texas Steel Guitar Show. Johnny Case performs (3-10) from 6:00 to 6:30 PM with a dance band preview, then from 12:00 to 2:00 AM at the annual Midnight Dance. The genre is Western Swing!

Tuesday, March 13: The Johnny Case Trio with Joey Carter performs at Scat Jazz Lounge in downtown Fort Worth. 8:00 PM to 12:00 PM. No Cover.

Friday, April 6: The Brian Reilly Trio at Soho Food & Jazz (5290 Belt Line Road). Brian Reilly, trumpet & vocals, Johnny Case, piano, Chris Peake, acoustic bass. Hours – 9:00PM to 1:00 AM.

Saturday, April 14, 2012: Johnny Case Trio plus guests play a special event - “Sardines Revisited” at Arts Fifth Avenue. The trio will feature Joey Carter, drums & Chris White, bass. The $20 cover charge includes Italian food served at 6:30 before the music begins at 7:30 PM. Many familiar Ft. Worth jazz artists will perform!

Thursday, July 19, 2012: Johnny Case performs with a quartet including jazz guitarist James Shannon and drummer Duane Durrett in a Tribute to Wes Montgomery as part of the Thursday Jazz Concert Series at the Fort Worth Public Library. This event free to the public (check later for performance times).
