MADISON, NY – Most people cook with Rachael Ray cookware on the stove.

Not Terry Johnson. He cooks with it on stage with his band The Swamp Drivers.

This unique band makes their own instruments out of some very unusual items.

A toilet seat for a bass guitar, garbage cans for drums, and yes even a Rachael Ray frying pan for a guitar.

Ray heard of the alternative use of her cookware and invited Johnson to appear on her show.

“Probably one of the coolest, scariest, things I’ve ever done” says Johnson.

“My son asked me when we got there if I was nervous. I said no. I’ve been on WKTV a few times, opened up for a lot of people, stuff like that. When you go on a national show it’s a little different. You know you’re in back and the first time I see Rachael Ray walk by and I’m like (gasp) that’s Rachael Ray.”

Johnson performed with The Swamp Drivers at the Hotel Solsville on Sunday, but you can catch him on the Rachael Ray show Monday at 11 am on WKTV.
