Twangin’ on a guitar! Bangin’ on a drum! Look out everybody ‘cause here come …
Johnny and the Raindrops play jump-up-and-down-rocking-and-rolling-can’t-sit-down-best-time-ever music for cool kids and funky families. They write lively and original songs that get children (and grown ups) dancing and moving, singing and grooving.
The Nottingham-based band have released seven albums of innovative and original music for children, plus a greatest hits album Best of the Bunch, and a DVD ‘No Sleep ‘til Sherwood’.

International Children’s Festival, Southwell Folk Festival, Glastonbudget, Farnstock, Nottingham Ice Arena, and hundreds of gigs at local festivals, carnivals, play days, schools, libraries, bandstands, village halls, etc.
