About the Band

Originating In the fall of 1997, One Shot Johnny is a
three-piece blues band from south central Kentucky.
Band members include : Jeremiah “Machine Drum” Kelly on drums, Joe Shirley on bass, and Randy Colvin on guitar, and play a mix of modern and traditional blues: both originals and covers. The group has gigged around the Kentuckiana region, sharing billing with such bands as Jim Diamond and the Groove Syndicate, Steve Ferguson and the Midwest Creole Ensemble, Big Al and the Heavyweights, Studebaker John and the Hawks, and James Solberg Band.

The band’s first CD,“Nuthin'Tuit” came out in the spring of 2000,
and to very favorable reviews, but is now SOLD OUT!.
 One Shot Johnny has since built a considerable following in the
Central Kentucky area and is venturing into the city blues clubs.

The Band’s second recording effort, “Feelin Dangerous” was released in March of 2002 and sold well, building on the bands foundation,
 as purveyors of original blues.
( Randy's guitar playing is also being featured in a national advertising campaign by a major auto manufacturer, and is currently being considered in Los Angeles for a movie soundtrack and trailor from this very CD ) 

One Shot Johnny's third CD release  "Give Me A Reason" came out in April of 2004 and has been receiving local, regional, national and international airplay on stations featuring blues, with songs like, "Someone, Somewhere" , "Watching Old Memories Burn" , and "Two Days Til Payday" . The band's music has also been featured on numerous internet radio shows.

And Now, "One Shot Johnny" has their fourth CD just released,
titled "Times Like These", aptly named for "times like these". It includes the most artistic, raw, and heartfelt blues from the boys yet !
With cuts like, "She's My Everything", Your Eyes Don't Lie",
and "Scratching Up From Zero" among twelve great original songs.
