The Nathaniel Johnstone Band

The Nathaniel Johnstone Band hails from Seattle, WA, lead by multi-instrumentalist Nathaniel Johnstone (violin, banjo, and guitar). Their vibrant sound crosses boundaries and borders, resulting in a blend of Rock, Jazz, Surf, and Folk with a penchant for storytelling and myth-bending.

Joining the band on stage is world-renown bellydance fusion artist Tempest, adding another incredible level to the band’s dynamic stage show. All together, they provide an incredible audio-visual experience that delivers solid, reliable music and high-quality entertainment - all while getting folks up and dancing!




The Cult Historian said of a live show: “It spun into nothing short of a brilliant sign of our times: a cultural mashup that blended east, west, and between into the musical backdrop for a steampunk-influenced belly dancing spectacular.

CD Project "The Mother Matrix" released on May 1st!
