John Sebastian's passion in music was influenced by his parents, his father being a noted harmonica player and his mother being a writer for radio shows.  John Sebastian was raised in New York City, specifically in Greenwich Village.

Sebastian at a young age grew up in an artistic and musical home; he even was a neighborhood kid for some recording artists.  Sebastian's first band was The Even Dozen Jug Band, who invited him after his summer camp.  After some time, the band broke-up and John Sebastian then joined The Mugwumps with Cas Elliot, Zal Yanovsky as well as Denny Doherty of The Mamas and the Papas.  John Sebastian and Zal Yanovsky joined together to make an electrifying version of their music after the course of the Mugwumps.  Steve Boone also joined John and Zal as bassist and Joe Butler as the drummer.

The Lovin’ Spoonful was created and began performing in the nearby clubs of
Greenwich Village.  The Lovin’ Spoonful, as the band's name, was suggested by Fritz Richmond who recorded with John thirty years later on I Want My Roots.  During The Lovin’ Spoonful's two year reign, they produced three unforgettable albums, as well as provided the soundtracks to Francis Ford Coppola's film, You're a Big Boy Now and What's Up Tiger Lily, a Woody Allen's hit movie.  After thirteen years, the band of The Lovin’ Spoonful by John Sebastian reunited to perform Do You Believe in Magic in Paul Simon's film, One Trick Pony.

John Sebastian kept himself quite busy between decades.  He had several solo albums, had tours, appeared on TV shows, broadcast performances, wrote theme songs for Welcome Back, Kotter appeared on radio show and even wrote a children's book.  His song for the hit TV show, Welcome Back, Kotter brought him back on the charts with another top ten hit.  Summer in the City, one of John Sebastian's songs became the theme song for Die Hard with A Vengence, Bruce Willis' 1995 film.

During the mid-ninety's, John Sebastian together with Fritz Richmond combined with rhythm kings Jimmy Vivono as well as James Wormworth formed John Sebastian and The J-Band.  Paul Rishell and Annie Raines also joined the band and they had their first album, I Want My Roots.  This brought John back to the American roots music.  It was a tribute to the musicians who invented and re-invented the Jug Band sound. 

John Sebastian has repeatedly carved his own identity in music industry.  His talents have marked a path for a different kind of music; that made a difference in the history of music.  His potentials played a powerful role in his life.  Nowadays, he can be found living in upstate New York with his wife and two children, getting back to his roots.

John Sebastian joined a commission of songwriters in Washington D.C. to campaign on behalf of the National Music Publishers Association together with John Hartford, Lamont Dozier, Allen and Marilyn Bergman, Cy Coleman and Mike Stoller.

John Sebastian was a successful music artist, in later years, he hosted several television programs about 60's music, including infomercials for compilation sets, as well as a half-hour program called The Golden Age of Rock and Roll.  He also played harmonica on The Doors album Morrison Hotel and on the Little Red Rooster on the live album The Doors in Concert. 

John Sebastian was indeed a great musician, a vibrant performer and a unique artist.
