Fresh off the release of his highly anticipated album, award-winning trop rock artist John McDonald joins the Jams 'N' Cocktails radio show in the Legendary JNC Lounge to discuss his latest project, "Beach More, Worry Less".
Not only will he be shedding light on his newest release, but he will also be treating us to an exclusive premiere of his captivating music video for "The Last of the Sand Walkers," featuring the talented Johnny Ringo from the esteemed CODE Rum company.
Before moving to Florida, singer songwriter John McDonald was heavily influenced by the music of Bob Marley, Jimmy Buffett, and Paul Simon. These artists introduced him to the sounds of Jamaican reggae, Caribbean rock, and South African and Brazilian rhythms.
Now living on the Atlantic Coast of Florida, John McDonald and his band, the Mango Men, create their own unique style of music called Trop Rock. It's a high-energy blend of fun, feel-good Classic Rock with a Floribbean twist!
John's love for the tropical lifestyle inspired him to create his latest album, Islandology. Just like chefs in South Florida who mix different cuisines together, John and his bandmates, drummer Kevin Kornicki and guitarist Dale Cinski, combine their love for Latin, reggae, world beat, calypso, and island-based rhythms.
According to Space Coast Daily, John McDonald & the Mango Men create a fun and infectious party atmosphere by blending reggae, rock, Latin percussion, and world beat rhythms. They recently performed at the Space Coast Seafood & Music Fest alongside Molly Hatchet, Charlie Daniels Band, and Soldiers of Jah Army, a Grammy-nominated reggae band.
They have also shared the stage with legendary artists like The Beach Boys, Hall & Oates, Smokey Robinson, and America, just to name a few. Even though John McDonald has started a new chapter in Florida, he still loves performing his fun and upbeat Trop Rock and Classic Rock music with a Floribbean twist.
As a performing songwriter, he also enjoys the intimate atmosphere of house concerts and small venues.
