… hails all the way from the San Juan Islands in Northern Washington State. He has shared the stage with the likes of Kathy McDonald (of Ike & Tina Turner and Long John Baldry fame) & Larry Knechtel (of 5th Dimensions, Bread, and who also wrote & played the piano piece for Paul Simon’s “Bridge Over Troubled Water”). Traveling and playing throughout the US & Canada in numerous bands, Geno was caught up in a scandal of gigantic proportions – and FALSELY accused in twelve US states of illegally removing the tags from Sealy Posturepedic mattresses. It has been said a person is innocent until proven guilty, but facing the grave penalties associated with such a crime (that he was FALSELY accused of) – and NOT having a lot of faith in the “justice system” – Geno became “Juan-Ted”… and fled to Mexico full time in 2002 to start his music career anew.
Geno / “Juan-Ted” now performs “Solo”… (a boy & his guitar), and has performed in many prior Festivals in the past. Geno brings back the favored songs we all remember from such artists as Roy Orbison, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Elvis, Del Shannon, Buddy Holly, Jimmy Buffet, The Allman Brothers, and many more! The Festival welcomes Juan-Ted back to this year event. Don’t miss him!
