Arnetta Johnson & SUNNY
Arnetta Johnson & SUNNY
Arnetta Johnson and the trumpet began their relationship at age 13;
They dubbed her..."That Trumpet Chic"!

Arnetta is poised to intersect a new young musical audience and the sage jazz aficionados to a hot new musical experience. Arnetta's goal is simple...besides world peace and understanding (#ShoutOutToGodTho) Arnetta Johnson is the composite of a “Love Supreme” and beyond belief! We are eternally grateful that Nasir Dickerson, Jamal Dickerson and Hassan Sabree, who were the initial catalysts’ that birthed Arnetta’s passion for the trumpet. They introduced Arnetta to a new realm of musical discovery...the art of improvisation. This consortium also taught Arnetta the responsibility of her talent. As a gift to humanity your music is not to be wasted and is always shared with love, respect, and passion. These early lessons will carry Arnetta, considered the quintessential “BAND GEEK” from Creative & Performing Arts High School in Camden, NJ and matriculated her to Berklee College of Music in Boston. From this estuary Arnetta headed to destinations and stages unknown yet to be determined but not limited to; Super Bowl LVIIII (49) performance featuring Beyonce’, also as a feature trumpeter on the Beyoncé Formation Tour, and the 2018 “On The Run Tour II” or backing up amazing show women like Janelle Monáe . Whether it’s a television show, concert gig, or international performance, her artistry is always front and center. The consummate student Arnetta stays plugged into her mentors; Saxophonist Tia Fuller and notably Grammy award winning Vocalist and Poet Jill Scott, who's Blues Babe foundation presented Arnetta with their coveted Rising Star Award. Arnetta’s cachet continues to grow as she has worked with some of the best including; Ralph Peterson, Buster Williams, Mimi Jones, Victor Lewis, Esperanza Spalding, Shamie Royston, Aaron Spears, Geri Allen, Warren Wolf, Terri Lyne Carrington, Chris Stevens, Eric Roberson, Christian McBride, Solange’ and many more to come. As of 2018 Arnetta Johnson is a Grammy Certificate recipient for her participation on the H.E.R EP and the Beyonce’ and Jay-Z (The Carter’s Album) “Everything Is Love”. The future for Arnetta is immeasurable which includes her now monthly show at the legendary Viper Room in Los Angeles or expanding her "DISRUPTED JAZZ" musical style, and her “Netta Bop” sound; while leading her band ARNETTA JOHNSON & SUNNY. {SUNNY=Sounds Uplifting Nobility through Notes and Youth} Arnetta's goal is to stand jazz on it head...Disrupt, Uplift, inspire, and bridge the chasm of where Jazz is, and take her sound to where Jazz ain’t! Her style is youthful, fresh, moving, and impactful. Arnetta Johnson wants you to see, hear, and feel where she’s coming from through her music. As the saying goes, ”You already know”; and if you don’t get ready to witness some of Gods best handiwork.
