Band bio/info: Mark and Johnny Groh, along with former drummer J. Connelley, had already been playing together for a year in the now defunct cover band SODA POP CURTIS. J. Gray, a singer/songwriter, came to an impromptu rehearsal where he shared some of the songs he had been working on. Upon hearing those songs the Groh cousins (Mark and Johnny) knew they were about to be part of something bigger, and J. Gray became a permanent part of the band. Their first show (under the band name Blame the Dog) was performed in Feb. 2007 for 300 people. Since that time they changed their band name to Cousin Johnny, recorded a 10 track demo (Feb. 2007), a 5 song EP (Mar. 2010) , and an album to be released in 2012. In May of 2010, Jim Connelley left the band. Soon after, Cousin Johnny was invited to appear at The Hard Rock Café (Boston) as finalists for the RADIO 92.9 Battle for Earthfest.A few months later the band was invited to appear at the Middle East (Cambridge)downstairs in front of a crowd of over 400 people. Jon Hillman, and most recently Bobby Gosselin were brought in to fulfill the drumming duties for Cousin Johnny.Cousin Johnny draws their sound from countless influences, (The Pixies, Social Distortion, U2, Bob Dylan, The Kinks, Weezer to name a few)
