John McLaughlin Booking Agency Profile

Book John McLaughlin for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
John McLaughlin has been cited as a major influence on many '70s and '80s fusion guitarists, including prominent players such as Steve Morse, Eric Johnson, Mike Stern, Al Di Meola, and Scott Henderson. According to Pat Metheny, McLaughlin has changed the evolution of the guitar during several of his periods of playing. McLaughlin is also considered a major influence on composers in the fusion genre. In an interview with Downbeat, Chick Corea remarked that ...what John McLaughlin did with the electric guitar set the world on its ear. No one ever heard an electric guitar played like that before, and it certainly inspired me. John's band, more than my experience with Miles, led me to want to turn the volume up and write music that was more dramatic and made your hair stand on end". A Grammy Award winner, McLaughlin has been honored with several "Guitarist of the year" and "Best Jazz Guitarist" awards from publications including Down Beat and Guitar Player. Rolling Stone list him among their "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time"..
