John McBroom

John McBroom resides in Roanoke, Virginia and is known for: his prolific involvement with FloydFest, as production manager, artist and recently as co-owner of the festival itself; as music teacher and administrator at Community High School of Arts and Academics; and touring and gigging musician in many bands over the last thirty years.  Drawing from this history in music performance and involvement in curating live music, John brings a wealth of musical knowledge and talent to his own music.  Currently co-fronting two Virginia based bands in the ‘Newgrass’ driven sound of Blue Mule, and the jam-centric ensemble known as GOTE.  Both playing FloydFest this year.  John shares his unmistakable original sound straight from the heart.

John is now venturing out to explore his own writing as a singer/songwriter with nothing but his guitar and innate sensibilities of his telling of stories from the road.  John brings his vast musical experiences to the stage as a solo performer to stir the heart strings of listeners of all ages.
