A native of northeastern Ohio, John Connors has been a musician in the Ohio Army National Guard since 2007 and serves full-time as the Readiness NCO, and as a trombone player and drum major, with the 122nd Army Band in Columbus. Earlier in his military career, he performed the solemn duties of Funeral Honors bugler, sounding Taps hundreds of times each year for military funerals.

Through further research in an effort to understand the history and significance of his role as a true Army bugler of today, Connors' area of expertise became that of the Civil War bugler. He is in demand to give lectures and demonstrations on the topic of bugling in the Civil War, and can also be heard at many events around the country as a bugler for 1st Section Horse-drawn Artillery, The Liberty Rifles, and others.

As a bugler, fifer, or brass band musician, John has performed with the Camp Chase Fifes and Drums (bugle and fife); the 6th Ohio Mounted Buglers and 2nd Cavalry Brigade Band (G cavalry trumpet/B-flat bugle; B-flat cornet; string bass; cello; tin whistle; B-flat tenor); and the 73rd Ohio Volunteer Infantry Regiment Band (E-flat cornet; B-flat tenor; drum major; bass drum; snare drum; B-flat cornet; E-flat bass; E-flat alto), bringing music of the period to audiences at a variety of events across the nation.

Connors graduated in 2019 with a Master of Music degree (with licensure) in Music Education from the University of Akron. He is also a 2014 graduate of Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, PA, where he earned a Master of Music degree in Trombone Performance. Prior to that, he received a Bachelor of Music degree, magna cum laude, in Trombone Performance from Ohio University in Athens.
