The Claudettes Album Release Concert
Friday, Nov. 18 | 8:00pm ET (7:00pm CT)
Wielding their own distinctive "garage cabaret" sound, the Claudettes merge earthy blues and soul with indie-rock energy and punk spirit, writing an intriguing new chapter in American roots music. Pianist/songwriter Johnny Iguana joins seductive singer Berit Ulseth, bassist/vocalist Zach Verdoorn and drummer Michael Caskey. Johnny, who toured for years with his cult-favorite rock band Oh My God, has played on albums featuring Buddy Guy, Johnny Winter, Derek Trucks, Keb' Mo', Gary Clark Jr., Shemekia Copeland, James Cotton, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and more. He has toured/recorded with Junior Wells and Otis Rush and in 2021 earned a prestigious Blues Music Award nomination for Piano Player of the Year.
The Claudettes recorded their 2018 album "DANCE SCANDAL AT THE GYMNASIUM!" (Yellow Dog Records) with Grammy-winning producer Mark Neill (Black Keys). In 2020 the Claudettes released "High Times in the Dark" (Forty Below Records), a new album helmed by Grammy-winning producer Ted Hutt (Violent Femmes, Lucero). The Claudettes have lots of new music on the way in 2022.
“A revelatory blend of jazz and blues, stirred with punk brio. There are also dashes of classical and world music, and enough stops, starts and hairpin turns to suggest the giddiness of Raymond Scott's cartoon music...How do they do it?” —Greg Kot, Chicago Tribune
