To our faithful listeners,

We've decided to formally shutdown thesixtyone.com -- our servers will go offline at midnight, May 1st 2017.

Artist tipping and music purchases will be functional until then, so please spend any remaining credits by month's end. 
A final payment will be made to artists following the shutdown.

thesixtyone was our baby for most of our twenties. We're incredibly sorry we weren't able to keep things going in the 
right direction.


Thank you for being a part of it.

Von Johin (it's pronounced Yo-Hen) was born in Second Life in July 2007, following a chance encounter with a tall elf while they were both foraging for taters and such at the local village shop that sells them things. Having come across the elf, Cypress Rosewood, before in his travels in life, ol' Von listened to the mystical man's tales of conjuring up magic for folks around the world without every leaving him's home outside of Nashville, TN.

Von thought he's like to conjure up some magic for folks around the world, too, and soon after built himself a place to do just that in the world of Second Life, and called it Johin's Blue Note Club. Seats about 40, modeled after the juke joints and drankin' parlors where Von had made him blues before in his lifetime, it opened in the summer of 2007, and not long after that, Von's Mrs, Harlee Johin, joined him up in that there Second Life place, learnt to tailor up all kinds of fancy clothes and sold'em in her store next door to the club.

Since then Von has attracted a loyal gathering of folks who loves the blues and how he tells'em, to'em each week. Ol' Von don't charge a fee to go to most shows, so just stop by and set a spell, and if ... (+) expand

Von, still a bit of a newb here, but have heard you countless times. Yay! I come for the music, and so far, the best I've found on sl. As a deadhead, I would ask for ya to continue to play the blues songs the Dead did, mainly the Pigpen ones of course! And once again YAY!

Saw Von at an SL live concert (if you don't know what that is, do yourself a favor and check out Second Life) and now I'm a regular fan! Does all the old fingerpicked blues (mississippi delta, piedmont, et. al.) true to form. His style and vocals are all reminiscent of the old blues master's, without all the hisses, pops and other audio failings of the early equipment used to record them. He and Roy Bookbinder would have a ball playing together!
