I met John Paiva when I lived in the Munich area several years ago. He was playing with Steve Hooks as a Jazz Duo and together with Steve and Ron Evans as a Acoustic Blues and Jazz Trio. You could find John also with his Jazz Quartett in Munich.
Today is John’s 70th birthday and this is a perfect chance to have some pictures of John on my website again. Happy birthday, John!
I took all pictures during live gigs in 2007 with my Nikon D200 that I used to have with me that days.
I love John’s guitar style and it’s always a pleasure to see him live.
Today John is performing Jazz music in smaller clubs in and around the Munich area. This is a performance at the Le Pirate in Rosenheim.
Some of you might even remember John from the time when he was playing with the Four Seasons.
In 1975 they had big hits like December, 1963 (Oh What a Night) and Who Loves You.
