John Jorgenson is perhaps best known for his guitar work with bands such as the Desert Rose Band and The Hellecasters. However, Jorgenson is also proficient in the mandolin, mandocello, Dobro, pedal steel, piano, upright bass, clarinet, bassoon and saxophone. He has earned a reputation as a world-class musician, as evidenced by his collaborations with Earl Scruggs, Bonnie Raitt, Elton John, Luciano Pavarotti, Bob Dylan and more. While a member of the Desert Rose Band, Jorgenson won the Academy of Country Music's "Guitarist of the Year" award two consecutive years.

The John Jorgenson Quintet creates a unique musical experience that equally enthralls the most discerning and the casual music fan. The group’s style has been called “Gypsy Jazz” but Jorgenson’s compositions draw in elements from Latin, Romanian, Classical, Rock and Greek music, so “21st Century World Music” is perhaps a more apt description.

The current members playing along with John Jorgenson are Jason Anick (violin), Max O’Rourke (guitar), Simon Planting (bass) and Rick Reed (percussion).
