June 21, 2018 was a special night being honored as one of "The King's of Staten Island" for the Late Night with Johnny P Show. The event was held at the Richmond County Country Club on Staten Island. Special thank you to Lori Pedone & the Schneps family for this award & a great night. Best Johnny Potenza
Hello family & friends, I'm checking in with everyone to let you all know that I'm enjoying my time off from the show just chilling, relaxing & working behind the scenes in the entertainment business. On June 21, 2018 I was honored to be presented with "The King's of Staten Island" award at the Richmond County Country Club. That was a great night that I shared with family & friends.
It's official that my new show will start taping in January 2019. I'm in pre-production with my music producer & dear friend Richie Scarlet for our future recordings. Richie Scarlet is currently playing in the Ace Frehley Band, Ace is the original guitarist of the legendary rock band KISS & rock n' roll hall of famer. Richie Scarlet also produced my former band NYB "None of Your Business". One of the songs we will be recording is the new opening theme song for my new late night show "Up Late with Johnny Potenza", I'm looking to get the sound of the old school big band era of Benny Goodman, Buddy Rich meets the funk rock sound of todays genre. I will havesome top players on the recordings. I'm also writing with my pal Mark Montague from the Peter Criss Band, Five for Fighting & solo artist. Mark also wrote & recorded with NYB, also my good friend recording engineer & my sound engineer for the Late Night with Johnny P Show Frankie D'Augusta. Frankie is best known for engineering "Frampton Comes Alive" & the list goes on. All I can say now is that some members of NYB & my late night band Killer Joe & the lido soul revue will be on the recording as well. Still trying to coordinate the players & recording sessions, we will keep you all posted. Best Johnny P July 2018

About Johnny P
Somehow it feels "right" that jack-of-all-trades Johnny Potenza grew up the son of a firefighter-slash-old-time plasterer. After all, this Brooklyn-born and Staten Island- raised Renaissance Man has spent his life pursuing multiple paths, too, logging time as a musician, a TV producer and an on-camera performer. And, as if that wasn’t enough, along the way he carried on the family tradition of plastering – as his on-again, off-again “survival” job. Indeed, Johnny Potenza is nothing if not a survivor.
