JOHN CAIN - MUSICIAN, COMPOSER, TEACHER, AUTHOR.
A professional musician since he was 15 years old, Cain has watched the world go by from sitting behind a piano on the bandstand. In his new book-"Life's A Good Gig"- he shares his experiences and unique view of life. An astute observer of people and human nature he explores the mysteries of life and music in this well crafted memoir.
At meet-the-author events he offers an entertaining and educational musical performance and speaks about topics in the book. He safely guides the audience from American music-(jazz, blues, country, standards from the "great American song book") into the world of Latin music, with lots of laughs and surprises along the way.
Cain plays several musical instruments including the piano, guitar, bass fiddle, accordion, harmonica and Latin percussion. He gives seminars on the history of music and the symphony orchestra to elementary school students. He is also an orchestrator, arranger and produces recordings for many other artists and musicians.
He performs frequently throughout the U.S.
