Having a firm grasp of the music industry comes from over 30 years of deep involvement in it. Johnny Sexx has firmly grasped the music industry with both hands….and he’s not letting go!

There are very few players in the Baltimore Music Scene that can say, “I don’t know who Johnny Sexx is.” He has been playing professionally since birth, and has rocked with some of the best. This alone would make most musicians pompous and arrogant. Not Johnny Sexx. After almost every performance, you will see Mr. Sexx out in the audience “Smoozing” with everyone and anyone. “It’s one of my favorite things to do with my clothes on (or off)!” says Sexx. “The audience is the other half of the perfect recipe for the perfect show. Great Musical Performance + A Great Audience = A Perfect Show.” So make sure you get out to see King Belvedere at one of their upcoming performances, and make sure you wait around afterwards to meet Johnny Sexx.
For those of you who haven’t met Johnny, we put together 10 Questions for Johnny to answer. Feel free to reply with any other question you may have for Mr. Sexx! Enjoy!!!
