Dueling Guitars Take the Stage at Minstrel Cafe

Dueling Guitars Take the Stage at Minstrel Cafe

Johnny vs. Johnny Duo to play June 26
Local guitar duo, Johnny vs Johnny, returns to the Minstrel Café for a one-night performance Wednesday, June 26 at 8 p.m.

With John Vesterinen on electric guitar and John Paul Byrne on acoustic, the two toss lead vocals back and forth while providing an entertaining on stage presence. Byrne’s deep baritone pairs well with Vesterinen’s tenor and the pair offer up some ’70s greats like Gordon Lightfoot, Neil Diamond and The Beatles, rock, blues as well as newer artists like Jason Mraz and Train.

Their camaraderie is always apparent and the intimate setting of The Minstrel will have patrons caught up in a fun and music-filled night.

Locals will know Vesterinen from the Mission Tennis Club and Bankhead Elementary and Byrne from Okanagan Life Magazine.

The Minstrel Cafe & Bar has established itself as a casual, gourmet-dining destination nestled in the Okanagan Mission. The Minstrel presents an eclectic mix of folk, roots, jazz, blues and world beat, and showcases performances from local and international artists. You’ll find them at 4638 Lakeshore Road.
