Live Concerts

The Claudettes

Event Date: 
Friday, August 8, 2014 - 9:00pm

With just piano and drums, The Claudettes (of Chicago, IL) create their own fanatical fusion of blues, jazz and soul like Ray Charles on a punk kick. Imagine an amped-up hybrid of Otis Spann, Ray Charles and Mose Allison, joined by a jolly madman drummer and conducted in gonzo fashion by Raymond Scott. File under: post-burlesque? Neo-vaudeville? Cosmic cartoon music? You've never seen an instrumental duo like this.

Dancer/singer Yana Atim will be joining the Claudettes on stage on tour. The Claudettes are Johnny Iguana (piano) and Michael Caskey (drums); these two have played with Junior Wells, Otis Rush, James Cotton, Buddy Guy, Chuck Mangione...
