Jonny Lang, North Dakota’s sensational blues, gospel, and rock music artist is bringing his signature sounds to the Florida Theater!
Jonny Lang (birth name Jon Gordon Langseth, Jr.) was born in Fargo in 1981 and is of Norwegian descent. He began his musical journey by playing guitar for his friends and then took guitar lessons from Ted Larsen; a guitarist from one of Fargo’s blues bands called Bad Medicine Blues Band. Jonny joined the band after several months of lessons and the band was renamed to Kid Jonny Lang and The Big Bang. He released his debut solo album (Lie to Me) in 1997 and it hit #1 on Billboard’s New Artist chart. The album went on to achieve Platinum status and Jonny’s follow-up album (Wander This World) got him a Grammy nomination. Despite these feats, he still can’t listen to them and says “It's like torture. It's like going back and looking at your high school yearbook or something. But no, I wouldn't change anything. It's all a part of where you are presently as a person.” Jonny is also a relentless touring machine and has performed with renowned acts such as the Rolling Stones, Buddy Guy, Aerosmith, B.B. King, Blues Traveler, Jeff Beck, and Sting. He also appeared in the 1998 musical comedy, Blues Brothers 2000.
