Jon Cleary & The Absolute Monster Gentlemen

A respected session and sideman, British blues pianist and composer Jon Cleary has worked with rock, blues and soul artists like Bonnie Raitt, Maria Muldaur, Taj Mahal and Eric Clapton.

Originally a guitarist, Cleary began playing at age five, and started his own band at 15. Raised on blues, jazz and soul records, his love of New Orleans blues and jazz took him across the ocean and after playing with bluesmen like Smokey Johnson, Kames Singleton and George Porter, Cleary went on to form his own band, the Absolute Monster Gentleman, who have released six albums. Their album ‘Go Go Juice’ won the Grammy Award for Best Regional Roots Music Album in the 58th Annual Grammy Awards.
