Jack Johnson to Perform Live in Lisbon, Portugal June 26

Jack Johnson will be performing live with G Love and Special Sauce at the Atlantico Pavilion in Lisbon, Portugal on Thursday, June 26. Hawaiian born, Jack Hody Johnson is a singer, songwriter, musician, filmmaker and surfer who became successful after the release of his debut album, Brushfire Fairytales in 2001. Since then, he has released for more albums and numerous EPs featuring his acoustic/soft rock music.

The "sloppy" and "laid back" trio known as G. Love & Special Sauce first formed in 1992 and is known for their blues sound involved in the sound and production of R&B rap artists such as the Beastie Boys. G. Love was first introduced to Johnson during a day of surfing. The two later went on to record Jack's song, "Rodeo Clowns" for their album, Philadelphonic.

Jack Johnson and G. Love will be performing live in concert together again in Barcelona, Spain on June 28 and London, England on July 2. The music video for Jack Johnson's "Better Together" is available on Finditt Music.
