It’s that time of the week again! We are here to break down all things Nightfall. Just a re-cap in case you didn’t catch our last blog…Nightfall is a weekly FREE concert series that happens every Friday night from 7-10 pm. Aside from the awesome music, you can purchase drinks and food from several local food trucks and vendors. Now to the fun part.
This week the band coming to Nightfall goes by the name of “The Claudettes”, this is what their bio has to say about them. The Claudettes fuse Chicago piano blues with the full-throttle energy of rockabilly and punk and the sultriness of ’60s soul to write a thrilling new chapter in American roots music. Johnny Iguana pounds the piano alongside seductive singer Berit Ulseth, bassist/guitarist/singer Zach Verdoorn and drummer Michael Caskey. Johnny, who toured for years with his cult-favorite rock band oh my god, is also in the Grammy-nominated groups Chicago Blues: A Living History and the Muddy Waters 100 Band. He has toured/recorded with Junior Wells, Buddy Guy, Otis Rush and more and played piano on the Chicago Plays the Stones album featuring Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Buddy Guy. The Claudettes recorded their 2018 album “DANCE SCANDAL AT THE GYMNNASIUM!” with Grammy-winning Black Keys producer Mark Neill and have recorded a new album with Grammy-winning producer Ted Hutt (Old Crow Medicine Show, Gaslight Anthem, The Devil Makes Three).
They sound pretty great, but listen for. yourself. We hope to see you out there Friday night friends!!
