John Whiteleather Trio

  • Stottlemyer's Smokehouse

John Whiteleather hails from the south western part of Pennsylvania. At seventeen, he was LA bound and jumped into the music scene there. Eventually, the love for 60’s Rock and Roll, Classic Rock, Rockabilly, Vintage Country, Bluegrass and Folk became a genre of its own, “Americana”. Mixing many old classics with catchy originals and an energetic stage performance was the key ingredient. Finally John ended up in Sarasota, Florida to escape Swedish winters, and moved back to the USA. With local favorite, Zack Yoder on guitar and Ex-Boneshakers stand up bassist, Gary Cliff, this trio is one of the areas top acts. They are known for their broad repertoire of songs and organic sound. Many B-sides instead of the “typical” beachy repertoire. Their eclectic song mix consists of originals and covers by the likes of Gordon Lightfoot, Springsteen, Mellencamp, Eagles, Tim Buckley, Steve Earle, Eagles, Rolling Stones, Merle Haggard, Bluegrass classics and more.
