The up and coming new folk musical, JOHNNY & the DEVIL'S BOX just released their first music video and single "Johnny's Best." The video features filmography by James Jin, choreography by Jennifer Jancuska (Hamilton), and The BringAbout and music by Douglas Waterbury-Tieman with The Playbillies and Scott Wasserman (Hamilton, Dear Evan Hansen).
In the video we meet Johnny Baker, a young brash fiddle player from Georgia, played by Douglas W-T. The story follows his journey to evade the law, outwit a devilish preacher and navigate young love on his way to prove he's the best fiddler the world has ever known. But can he overcome the greatest obstacle of all, his own pride, before it's too late? JOHNNY & THE DEVIL'S BOX proclaims the immense healing power of music to bring broken communities together through jubilant song and dance.
