Touring for the first time since 2014, Jack Johnson plays his soothing surfer-inspired sounds at Lake Tahoe Outdoor Arena on July 28 and 29.
Son of well-known surfer Jeff Johnson, Jack learned to surf at age five. At age 17, he became the youngest to make the finals of the Pipeline Maters. After a pro surfing accident, Johnson focused his energy on school and music.
Drawing inspiration from folk rock, soul, reggae and even hip-hop, his unique sound comes from a variety of musical influences including Bob Dylan, Otis Redding, Bob Marley and A Tribe Called Quest, to name a few. Johnson’s popular songs like “Banana Pancakes” “Sitting, Waiting, Wishing,” “Breakdown” and “Better Together” appeared on his 2005 album, “In Between Dreams.” It hit the U.S. Billboard 200 chart at No. 2 and No. 1 in the UK and Australian charts. Johnson has six studio albums to date.
