Both are prodigiously good instrumentalists. Wayne on guitar and harmonica, (a Hohner endorsee, no less), and Kurt on guitar, banjo, piano and pedal steel. (Kurt was once a member of Bon Jovi – as a steel player!) Both have been in continuous demand in the years since the considerable heyday of the The Johnston Brothers.

They held a coveted spot on Jamboree USA on WWVA in Wheeling for four years, being part of weekly showcases featuring a Who’s Who of country music royalty. Fiddler Johnny Cunningham from Silly Wizard was once a member of the Johnston Brothers. They’ve played on the stage of The Grand Ole Opry and had a number of charted singles on Billboard’s Hot 100.

They’ve both been busy ever since. Wayne made a couple excellent solo records of his strong original material in Florida in recent years, featuring Kurt and others. They both remain much-sought-after sidemen, session players and solo artists.

Here’s Wayne performing “Ramblin’ Fever” from a few years ago.
