About the band:
Hey, Johnny Park! is the Southeast’s premier Foo Fighters tribute band! pride themselves on recreating the songs and stage show of the Foo Fighters, bringing musicianship and energy to every stage they step foot on. The foundation is created by Jason Summers (as Taylor), a Sabian endorsed drummer more than up to the task of recreating the pounding pulse of the Foo Fighters. Morgan Johnson (as Nate) provides the integral bass parts found in the catalog, while Luke Johnson (as Shifty) provides the scorching leads and stabbing rhythms on his Telecaster. Jeremy Polley (as Dave) fronts the group, combining soulful singing with primal screams, all while keeping the crowd energized and involved in the performance.
Hey, Johnny Park! formed in the fall of 2016, but had existed in various forms before that date, with Jeremy and Luke having played in bands together on an off for nearly a decade, Luke and Morgan having the familial connection, and Jason having brought in Jeremy and Luke for various other gigs. The premier performance at Amos’ Southend in Charlotte was well received, but the follow up performance just a few months later at The Fillmore Underground in Charlotte was a rousing success – a sellout crowd that set attendance records at the venue! Since then, Hey, Johnny Park! has gone on to book shows at the Tin Roof, Music Farm, Social in Columbia, South Carolina, and the Wilmington, North Carolina “Downtown at Sundown” annual concert series. They have shared the stage with other great tribute acts, such as Bright Lights – A Tribute to Matchbox 20, Carolinacation – A Tribute to The Red Hot Chili Peppers, and 42 – An International Coldplay Tribute.
Setlists include songs from the 20+ year career of the Foo Fighers, including such fan favorites as “I’ll Stick Around,” “Big Me,” “Everlong,” “My Hero,” “DOA,” “Pretender,” “All My Life,” “Monkey Wrench,” “Best of You,” “Arlandria,” “Rope,” and “Walk.” Hey, Johnny Park! have enough material to perform up to two and a half hours without breaks.
