Johnny Zostant is a 15 year old guitarist, singer & songwriter with talent and experience far beyond his years. Playing more than fifty shows a year and touring the U.S. from coast to coast, Johnny has already established himself as a solid support act for many well known national touring acts. Among the many headliners Johnny has supported at major U.S. venues are Gus G (Ozzy Osbourne, Firewind), Vinny Moore (Solo, UFO), Michael Angelo Batio (Solo, Nitro), Jacky Vincent (Falling in Reverse), Saliva, TRAPT, Faster Pussycat, Wayland, Don Jamieson from VH-1's That Metal Show and many more.   Johnny recently had the honor of being invited to walk the red carpet and perform live for some of the biggest legends of rock and metal at the 2018 Hall of Heavy Metal History Induction Ceremony at Winter NAMM, also receiving an amazing introduction by the famed rock historian and personality Eddie Trunk and also sharing the stage with the amazing Lzzy Hale. As a fully endorsed GHS Strings artist, Johnny will be a featured performer and demonstrator at their booth during Winter NAMM 2019. Writing, playing, recording and producing all of his own music, Johnny will be releasing a brand new, hard hitting "rock-n-metal" continuously throughout 2018 and 2019 and will continue touring and playing as many shows as he can to support this new offering of original music. Johnny's live show is where he truly shines and he never fails to put on an exciting, high energy, all out performance that rivals any major act on tour today.  Contact Johnny for any show/tour opportunities!!
