Johnson will play the famed jazz club at 7 PM.

"The soaring tenor explores a collection of old and new songs that capture his spirit of peace, love & rock 'n roll," according to press notes. "From classic rock greats to the music of Ryan Scott Oliver, Jay will share his innate R&B sensibility, Texas roots and Broadway background."

Johnson has been seen on Broadway in Hair and in the first national tour of A Chorus Line. His regional credits include Pool Boy, Hairspray and Godspell.
