Jon Cleary and The Monster Gentlemen
With the rhythms of New Orleans and old school soul and blues, Cleary creates an explosive blues-funk party. “Cleary’s salty-sweet voice, masterful piano skills and a knack for coupling infectious grooves with melodic hooks and sharp lyrics combine for r’n’b as broad, deep and rolling as the Mississippi river” (Rolling Stone). Cleary’s Band is the toast of New Orleans – with Cornell C Williams (bass) and A. J. Hall (drums).
