Johnny Hates Jazz consists of Clark Datchler (songwriting, vocals, keyboards) and Mike Nocito (production, engineering, guitars). The band is best known for a cycle of hits in the late 1980s, the most successful being Shattered Dreams.
In 1987, their album Turn Back The Clock entered the UK charts at number 1, selling over four million copies and going triple-platinum in the process. It is arguably one of the definitive albums of the 1980s. Since then, Shattered Dreams has got on to be played over 3.5 million times on US radio alone.
Now, in 2020, JHJ are back with a new album Wide Awake and the single New Day Ahead. We’re thrilled to welcome them onto our stage!
