John Boda is a long-time pro singer-guitarist extraordinaire! Born and raised just outside Chicago in the suburb of Riverside, he started performing professionally in the 1980's while living in the Western U.S. He was in many groups and toured the country full time as the lead guitarist-vocalist with a variety of rock-R&B bands in 1986, and upon the conclusion of the tour, he moved back to his roots in the Chicago area and has been here ever since in many bands and duo combinations.

His current band is called - Nebula Forming - a three piece powerhouse of rock-pop-groove classic to current hits plus many original songs as well. His current duo is - MC2 - featuring an excellent small kit drummer Tim Wilsey. Largely, he performs as a solo artist, but with a big sound!
