John Ginty
John (* 1972) started his career playing a local New Jersey Band called "Rose Hill" where he transitioned from a drummer to playing the Hammond B-3. He played in this band from approximately 1991 till 1994. Then in 1996 he played organ on Neal Casal's record "Fade Away Diamond Time", which led him to play on records by Whiskeytown, James Iha, and Hazeldine, before joining Jewel's touring band for MTV Unplugged, Saturday Night Live, the first Lilith Fair tour in 1998, and the following Papillion Tour in 1999. The following years saw him playing on records by Citizen Cope, Matthew Sweet, and Shannon McNally.
In 2000, John got together with pedal steel player Robert Randolph. In that same year, the band backed the legendary Blind Boys of Alabama on the Grammy winning release "Higher Ground". 2004 saw John playing on records by Bad Religion, Tift Merritt, Neal Casal, and "The Clarence Greenwood Recordings" by Citizen Cope. While continuing his session work and touring with Citizen Cope, in 2006 John formed the New Jersey-based John Ginty Band. In 2013, John got together with producer Ben Elliott, and began work on his first official studio release, Bad News Travels. The record features special guests Warren Haynes, Martie Maguire, Neal Casal, Alecia Chakour, Albert Castiglia, Todd Wolfe, and Cris Jacobs.
In 2013, Ginty was called upon again by Jim Scott to play on a record by the Court Yard Hounds called "Amelita". He then joined the Dixie Chicks touring band, playing keyboards on their Long Time Gone Tour.
Keyboard Magazine February 2014 issue featured lessons by John Ginty. Several books mention John including Strangers Almanac by Michael Heaplie which talk of John's participation in the making of Ryan Adams' Whiskeytown, one of the biggest selling country music albums of all time.
In the same year, John entered the Showplace Studios to record Bad News Travels Live DVD. Ginty recreated music from his Bad News Travels CD. In November 2019, Ginty joined the newly formed Allman Betts Band.
