Available for parties (or whatever you've got)

I had been a side man since the Ford Administration.  I'd played with pop bands, rock bands, blues bands, country bands, even a jazz band or two.  At times, I was pretty busy.  And if I had an open date, I was always happy to fill in or sit in.

But all along I've kept writing my songs.  Since 1972, there has to be somewhere close to five thousand by now.  And I'm always looking for a place to play them.  Because that's what I do.  I'm a full time singer/songwriter

So if you've got a coffee house or a little tavern or you're putting on some kind of gathering in Central Iowa (or anywhere else for that matter), and you want to bring in some live entertainment that's a little different (I guess everybody thinks they're a little different), give me a call or send me an email.

And if you want to perform or record a John Burns original, there's plenty to go around.
