S Tour Dates for Singer Songwriter John Michael Ferrari

John Michael Ferrari, Creative Producer, Singer, Songwriter, Author Music has been an integral part of John’s life! Writing it, singing it, and sharing it with audiences bi-coastally. This passion for performing and writing music was the foundation of John Michael Ferrari’s career as an entertainer, composer, and a performance coach. During the 70′s, John began writing musical jingles for radio commercials. As a songwriter, his “Dustoff”, penned by Ferrari while serving in the United States Army in Viet Nam, is a favorite among Veterans.

John Michael Ferrari, cabaret performer, still entertains and “wows” music and dance lovers across the country as an individual artist and as lead in The John Michael Ferrari Band. A real class act, for 2 decades John and his band or orchestra “Ferrari & Friends” performed nostalgic tunes from the 30′s to the 90′s, soft rock, ballads, and show tunes. John shared his entertainment talents with many charity events and good causes, including: International Myeloma Foundation, The Thalians Ball, Our House, the Jonssen Cancer Center, Save Ballona Wetlands, and the City of Hope to name but a few. Although John Michael Ferrari wears many hats (entertainer, songwriter, photographer, director, SAG/AFTRA actor), he treasures most the time he spends coaching with his singer and actor students. He is just as proud of his students’ successes as he is of his own.

As a photographer and director of photography, John has worked with many of the top models and up and coming filmmakers of today. His photography graces CD covers (i.e., “Minor Matters,” for Peoples Republic) and movie posters (i.e. “Redemption,” for Agenda Pictures).
