Encore - Santo & Johnny


The Breeze And I

Santo & Johnny
Directed by Bob Davie
Canadian - American Records SCALP 1002

From the back cover: Santo Anthony Farina and John Steven Farina, better known as Santo and Johnny, were both born on Kings Highway in Brooklyn, New York. Santo is 22, and Johnny is 19.

Santo started playing the steel guitar when he was 9 years old; and he also plays Spanish guitar, which he later taught to Johnny. Johnny, when his first love is playing the guitar, enjoys dancing and collecting records. To a great extent both boys have similar likes and dislikes: They are wild about lasagna (or just about any Italian food for that matter). One of those things they miss most while traveling is their mother's fabulous Italian cooking. They both favor sports clothes, but will wear a shirt and tie without too much fuss.

Sleep Walk, their first record has sold over one million copies and was the Number One record in the country for several weeks. This song was written by Santo & Johnny.

Ever since the popularity of their first record, Santo and Johnny have travelled all over the world for personal appearances, and have been seen on many television programs (among others, The Perry Como Show).
