Johnny's Landing is a Dutch rock band formed in 2006, in The Hague. The trio exists of songwriter Dominique van Dijkhuizen (vocals/lead guitar), Taco Fens (drums) and Jimmy van Dijk (bass).
Their sound can be described as "The Libertines fronted by Madeleine Peyroux" - ie; indie-jazz.
Early 2007, they were selected (out of 60-something other contending bands) as one of the four bands to compete in the Koninginnenach competition, and as a result played their first four gigs, including a stint at the main hall of the Paard van Troje.
They followed this up with gigs at festivals such as The Music In My Head (alongside Mando Diao, Badly Drawn Boy, Starsailor a.o.) and Langweiligkeit, and as support act for the 5 O'Clock Heroes and the 1990's.
Apart from writing new songs, they will spend the last months of the year playing at the Heineken Music Hall (supporting Razorlight), Paradiso (as LiveXS Local Hero), Bitterzoet and the Crossing Border festival (alongside Patti Smith, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club a.o.).
