Blues Brunch: Johnny Iguana and Michael Caskey from The Claudettes

Sunday, October 21, 11:00 AM
Performance Penthouse, Logan Center for the Arts
915 E 60th St

Inspired by the '60s piano-drums recordings of Otis Spann and S.P Leary, pianist Johnny Iguana and drummer Michael Caskey formed The Claudettes in 2011. The band has since evolved into a four-piece group with vocals and guitars, but the original concept of the group (as heard on their early recordings) was a piano-drums instrumental blues duo. Johnny had toured with Junior Wells and Otis Rush and recorded with many Chicago blues legends (as well as his own cult-favorite punk-organ band Oh My God), and Michael had grown up playing drums for multiple bluesmen in Detroit and is now one of the most in-demand drummers in Chicago.

The Logan Center Bluesfest, October 19-21, is an annual public celebration created to honor the South Side roots of the blues’ tradition with concerts, workshops, film, food, and conversation and will feature local and national musicians and artists in spaces throughout the Logan Center. The festival features a series of performances by musicians that reflect the diverse history of the blues tradition; a major archiving program to capture the stories of local and national blues artists; and workshops and educational programming to inspire the next generation of blues musicians and aficionados.
