Goodbye, and Thank You

I don’t know where to start, Johnny v’s bar evolved over the years into more than just a dive bar or a venue it really took on a life of its own. People would ask me to explain the magic we had there and I would have to say, the people. We had a night for everyone. Whether you are a punk, a rapper a rocker whatever we hosted it. Our motto was always if your cool then bring it. Our dress code was please wear pants ! Johnny V’s was not for the faint of heart, if you loved Johnny V’s you are definitely part bad ass ! The Johnny V family is a tight group of people, and we were a family there. I want to thank every band, rapper, performer and dj that ever performed. I also want to extend thanks to every customer that ever passed through our doors. And most importantly I want to thank the staff. The staff of this bar has always been the real reason this Shitty Dive bar thrived the way it did. Thirteen years 9 months is a great run for any bar, thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to be a part of the Downtown San Jose bar and music scene.
