“Brother Ray meets the Ramones…Chopin meets Minutemen.” So ventured Tony Sarabia of WBEZ radio (Chicago NPR) as he took at stab at describing the band in the studio with him. The Claudettes fuse Windy City piano blues with the full-throttle energy of rockabilly and punk, jazz-age echoes of burlesque and vaudeville and the sultriness of ’60s pop-soul to write a thrilling new chapter in American roots music. Group founder Johnny Iguana mashes the piano alongside singer Berit Ulseth, bassist/singer Zach Verdoorn and drummer Matt Torre. Johnny, who toured for years with his cult-favorite rock band, oh my god, is also a member of two Grammy-nominated groups: Chicago Blues–A Living History and the Muddy Waters 100 Band. He has toured or recorded with Junior Wells, Buddy Guy, Otis Rush, James Cotton and more. The Claudettes just recorded their forthcoming album with producer Mark Neill (who helmed the Black Keys’ “Brothers” plus albums by J. Roddy Walston & the Business, Paladins, Old 97’s, J.D. McPherson, Los Straitjackets and more).

Purchase tickets below for only $13.  All ages welcome.  Full bar and concessions will be available.
