John Zipperer and Friends

John Zipper  is a singer/songwriter who was initially a TV actor and stuntman . When changing a tire for a friend in Georgia, he was hit by a large oil truck and should have been dead. He survived and decided to move to Los Angeles to pursue a musical career. . His Americana music styles mix rock and blues with country and folk  Along with his clean high tenor voice and guitars, he performs with  "Friends" on bass, drums, guitar, mandolin , keyboard, ukulele, and fiddle which gives his music a full-band feel, complete with tight harmonies and melodies that stay in your mind. . He writes most of his own material in a variety of styles and tempos.  He is a pure singer/songwriter and troubadour with influences from the places he’s lived . He has a down-home, ego-free sense of humor and a personal connection with his audience. John understands the importance of variety and dynamics in musical performance and includes smiles and laughs with a few serious and even a couple of tears. from brilliantly written lyrics and melodies  to obscure cover songs not heard  in years, all  with his own unique wit and supported musically by his ever evolving band of “Friends.”
