Project Description

Johnny Rivers (born John Henry Ramistella, November 7, 1942, New York City) is an American rock and rollsinger, songwriter, guitarist, and record producer. His style includes folk songs, blues, and revivals of old-time rock ‘n’ roll songs and some original material. Rivers’s greatest success came in the mid- to late-1960s with a string of hit songs (including the #1 hit “Poor Side of Town”, “Summer Rain”, and “Secret Agent Man”), but he has continued to record and perform to date.
