Band Bio: Hank Johnson was born on July 14, 1949 in the Bushwick section of Brooklyn, New York. Hank began piano study early in life at age three. Mrs. Henryetta Klein was Hank's first piano teacher. Thereafter, he continued his private piano instruction with classical pianist Ms Malady, who taught piano at the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music. Other instructors have included Morty Reed (M. Feldman) who worked as a showband pianist in Las Vegas. Hank also learned to write music, and developed the friendship and guidance of Maurice R. Cox (Ray Cox), who worked for Machito (Latin American Band), as a copyist and arranger. Hank Johnson graduated George W. Wingate High School in June, 1967. Hank continued his education and, in June 1970, was awarded an AAS Degree in Graphic Arts and Advertising Technology, from what was then called New York City Community College In December 1973 a BFA degree was awarded from New York Institute of Technology, with a major in Communication Arts. In 1977 Hank had replaced Jimmy Nottingham's trio at the Village Door Restaurant and Supper Club in Jamaica, Queens, NY. It was there at the Village Door that Hank got the hands on experience that would spark and ignite his goal to be not just a piano player, but to be the best piano player.
