Johnson, who grew up on the North Shore of Hawaii, has been making award-winning surf films for years, but has only recently been recognized for his musical talent. Four months ago, Jack opened for Ben Harper at a Memorial Day show at RIMAC field. Since then, Johnson has successfully headlined numerous shows.

The night included a screening of Johnson’s latest surf film project, “”The September Sessions.”” The award-winning film played in between Phillips’ and Johnson’s performances.

Johnson, who was joined by Merlo on the bass and Adam Topol on the drums, played an unforgettable set with the audience singing and dancing for much of the show.
