Originally from Cardiff, Wales, and now a fixture of the San Diego music scene, Jonny Tarr is the kind of blue eyed soul musician that likes to throw an electronic groove down. A music degree Graduate of Paul McCartney’s Liverpool institute for the Performing Arts and a touring/recording artist with fifteen years of experience under his vintage Soviet Army belt, Jonny has played all over the world from opening the Jazzworld stage at the Glastonbury festival in the UK, to blowing sax with the DJs at the Tokyo Crossover Jazz Festival and touring across Europe.
A true multi-instrumentalist, Jonny can be seen playing as sideman to many of San Diego’s local heroes including playing sax with Tolan Shaw, Piano with Michael Tiernan and sax and guitar with Paul Cannon. But Tarr is mostly known for his high energy shows, whether he’s playing with his new 8-piece revue band or utilizing his unique solo looping electronica soul set up.
Live at The Belly Up was recorded on October 29, 2015 and features Jonny Tarr and his band performing 8 tracks from Tarr’s albums “Move Yourself” and “The Sky High – EP.”
