John Luskey, a Southern Maryland native, grew up listening to his family’s extensive record collection. By the age of 13, he had learned enough guitar to join his first band and write his first song. His first show was only in front of a handful of people. By the time he was 18, he had made a name for himself in Southern Maryland and the surrounding areas.
After playing music for over 20 years, John finally found two guys that shared his passion for performing live music; Jack Bannister (Bass) and Dwayne Taylor (Drums). Their straight-ahead, good-time music has become a staple in the DC, MD, and VA music scene and the trio has performed with Kenny Chesney, Brooks-n-Dunn, Rascal Flatts, and Toby Keith, just to name a few. And John and his band were the first unsigned band to ever play WMZQ Fest.
He has received awards from the John Lennon Songwriting Contest for “Honky Tonk Rhythm” and from Billboard Magazine for “When She Cries” and “King Of The World”.
