Johnny Porrazzo: Piano
Meeting planners nationwide book Johnny as
a piano player for months, and sometimes years, in advance for
their corporate events, tradeshows, fundraisers and galas.
Most recently, Johnny has performed as featured
entertainer and piano player for some of Atlanta’s most popular night spots. He
has been called by some “the man of 1000 songs” due
to the fact that you can throw out the name of just about any song,
and Johnny can play it. By ear. Without cheats.
Johnny has performed for sold-out concert halls
across the globe as a piano player. His extensive work
in Atlanta, Las Vegas, Nashville and Atlantic City have brought
him numerous accolades.
“Johnny’s like family to us. For the past 15
years, he has been the piano player and lead singer in the band
that entertains at our gala. With his professionalism, charisma
and genuine musical talent, we can’t imagine holding this
event without him. Our patrons ask for him by name and some
have even refused to attend if Johnny’s not the piano player!”

Johnny’s experience as a piano player started in his hometown
of Youngstown, Ohio. As a teenager, he showed tremendous
talent and was hired as a piano player and backup singer for The
Abraham Brothers gospel group.
From there, Johnny has toured internationally
with various gospel groups and went on to record his own solo
album, Porrazzo on the Polydor label. The album tour featured
Johnny as piano player and lead singer of his band, Porrazzo.
Event planners across the country rely on Johnny as their trusted
resource when it comes to corporate meeting and tradeshow
entertainment. Not only because he is a tremendously
talented piano player, but he also has a gift for public speaking. There
have been numerous events where Johnny has been invited to be featured
entertainer, but winds up helping coordinate other musicians, comedians
As a piano player and singer, Johnny is known to his audiences
and talent managers as the go-to guy when it comes to talent and
“For one of my clients we planned an employee dinner. The
event was hosted at a venue in South Carolina where we hired Johnny
as a piano player to entertain our over 200 guests. He was
easy to work with during the planning process and on-site. The
guests enjoyed his enthusiasm and interaction with the crowd. He
was able to accommodate their requests without thought. I will
definitely hire Johnny again!”
