JOHNNY ARCO: The Violinist, Writer, Teacher/ Instructor ... ARRESTED for playing music in Atlanta Subway Station ... (CITATION VIOLATION NATION PT.9)




Johnny Arco/ Facebook



This posting to be included in this journal's music/ art's honour roll society will be to highlight a young musician out of Brooklyn (NYC) ... Johnny Arco, who is an outstanding violinist, who has fell into the alternative genre of music. Johnny is someone I know from year's back, who I know as Juan/ John, originally from Dallas and has been close with my daughter Bear for many year's, back in the performing and visual arts high school they attended as well, they played music together in the same band, Juan a violinist and my daughter was a vocalist (actually my grandson as well Jason is trying for this high school who is into drama/ acting right now in middle school). Juan has moved on and found his new ground in Brooklyn gaining a music following in the New York City area and at the Green Room in Brooklyn as well, and been busting ass touring the country, doing a lil teaching etc ... a hard working ambitious artist ... and congrat's Juan on the EP too!

When I got an email on the CBS Atlanta newspiece linked below I was kind of shocked that he would have got arrested in a town like Atlanta for doing what is so common in a town like New York, and was even back in the day when I lived in Brooklyn myself many year's back. Because Atlanta sure as Hell is not an anti- arts town at all, being I had played music myself year's back in Atlanta's Underground District venue's, even my buddy and artist Joe Christ relocated to Atlanta specifically because of the kind of town it was, and Joe is an alternative artist as well ... so I look at this as an embarrassing blemish on the City of Atlanta, and simply some free positive publicity for you guy {: ) But as you also know Juan ... you can find asshole's everywhere you go too {: ) Below I wanted to highlight some of his work here ... and I also wanted to include this 2nd- 5th grader's class you were instructing in playing/ covering the Joan Jett classic, because it looked like so much fun guy ... and I of course am a big Joan Jett fan too! But wishing you as well the best to come Juan in your music! ... Enjoy ....


**** POST NOTE: I also decided to include this posting now in the "Citation Violation Nation" series since it is a perfect fit for that series too ... with all the ridiculous money milking shit that we have these dayz poured down our throat's.
