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 along side 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 new Chicago Plays the Stones album featuring Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Buddy Guy.
The Claudettes recorded their 2018 album DANCE SCANDAL AT THE GYMNNASIUM! (Yellow Dog Records) with Grammy winning producer Mark Neill (BlackKeys, Old 97’s, J. Roddy Walston, J.D. McPherson). The Claudettes new album, HIGH TIMES IN THE DARK, with Grammy winning producer Ted Hutt (Violent Femmes, Lucero, Old Crow Medicine Show, Gaslight Anthem, The Devil Makes Three), came out April 3, 2020, on Forty Below Records.
