John was born in Salem, Massachusetts in the season of the witch. He started playing guitar at age eleven fueled by his dads eclectic music collection, which was always blaring in his childhood home. As sounds of Guns N Roses, Hendrix and Zeppelin filled the air, John got more proficient on his guitar, and started playing in the band, Lush Puppies. In between long days working on the lobster boats, and long nights playing in the clubs, John’s mind would look ahead to Winter and to his second passion: Skiing powder in the Sierra Nevada. After attending Berklee School of Music in Boston, John headed to Lake Tahoe as a ski patroller at Kirkwood Resort.
The musical chemistry shared by Jeff and John was immediately apparent and they started playing around Lake Tahoe as The Connor Party. Still fueled by a love of authentic music, fresh powder and of all things regarding life in the mountains, you’ll find them applying their passions to their lives, and kicking sonic ass all over Lake Tahoe and beyond.
