The Johnny Crawford Orchestra comes from a family of musicians, and Johnny was performing from the time he could walk. In 1955 his singing impersonation of Johnnie Ray led to a contract with Disney, where he became one of the original Mouseketeers. As an actor, Johnny has appeared in over 250 television productions, 15 movies, and 12 plays. He received an Emmy Nomination at the age of 13 for his role in the western television series, "The Rifleman." Signed by Del-Fi Records in 1961, Johnny had five hits from five albums in the '60s: Cindy's Birthday, Rumors, Your Nose Is Gonna Grow, Proud, and Patti Ann. He has long been a fan of dance records from the first half of the 20th century, and in 1987 Johnny decided to spend two years in New York as the vocalist in Vince Giordano's Nighthawks Orchestra. During those two years he was blessed with the opportunity to play at Radio City Music Hall for a Garrison Keillor TV special, and perform for former President George Bush Sr. at his Inaugural Ball in 1989. Now Johnny enjoys singing with his own musical ensembles, while also providing authentic period music for film, special events, and education. Since 1990 The Johnny Crawford Dance Orchestra has gathered an enthusiastic following in Southern California from concerts and dances to private and corporate events. Let City Connection and Johnny Crawford's gifted orchestra offer you the live music and entertainment that will bring class and distinction to your next special event!
