(with The Monster Gentlemen)

Described by many as the funkiest band in the city that has the funkiest musicians in the world, Jon Cleary and The Absolute Monster Gentlemen are the gem in the New Orleans crown - a four-piece riot of gospel harmonies and foundation rocking grooves - a southern soul band like no other.

Running the full gamut from second line street beats to old school rhythm and blues, the party is propelled by Cleary's vocals and dazzling piano chops.

Described by Bonnie Raitt as “the ninth wonder of the world”, the demand for Cleary has landed him alongside Taj Mahal, Doctor John and jazz man John Scofield but he maintains that there's no bigger thrill than the electricity generated when the Absolute Monster Gentlemen take the stage.
