John Dominic was the lead singer of legendary blues/rock band the Bo Street Runners who famously won Ready Steady Winthe first televised rock talent show.
Changes of personnel followed this initial success and after three frustrating years on the UK circuit he and then drummer Mick Fleetwood decided to quit the band to pursue their careers elsewhere.
John continued his love of rock music whilst carving a busy career writing, producing and,later,directing TV commercials and he forged regular gigging relationships with Camden bands such as The Radical Sheiks and Hot Club.
He also recorded the iconic harmonica solo on Lulu’s cover version of My Boy Lollipop and appeared on national TV with her to promote the single.
The 21st Century saw the start of a continuing liaison with The Deborah Bonham Band including featured spots on her albumThe Old Hyde and at numerous Rock Festivals among them the annual Fairport Convention Cropredy Festival the Cambridge Rock Festival and Weyfest.
Former Stranglers front man Hugh Cornwell invited Dominic to record two numbers on his solo album Hi-Fi and as recently as October 2017 he played live with Hugh on the opening night of his UK solo Acoustic Tour having previously guested with him at The Borderline,the Scala and La Java Club in Paris.
John had always maintained a close personal friendship with drummer Mick Fleetwood which dated back to the late 1960’s. Having enjoyed being a VIP guest on the huge Fleetwood Mac Rumours Tour across the USA in 1977 he got a more recent call to do a vocals/harmonica spot with the Mick Fleetwood Blues Band in Las Vegas and Hawaii in 2015.
The Deborah Bonham Band won great acclaim in 2017 having formed the nucleus of Paul Rodgers Free Spirit band for his spring UK tour.The band themselves played to a sell-out audience at London’s 100 Club and the review in Record Collectormagazine described Dominic’s harmonica playing as ‘masterful’. There followed Festival gigs at Cambridge, Chichester and the Festival Mozaique in Normandy to round off a fulfilling musical year.
John Dominic continues to enjoy regular guest spots with Barnes Rock regulars Robin Bibi and the 60s All Stars.
