Hitting Australian shores with his Absolute Monster Gentlemen for the first time since his 2016 Grammy Award win for new album GoGo Juice, Jon Cleary has officially announced the Australian leg of his World Tour for this November.
A hot ticket on Australian shores where he has sold out everywhere from Sydney’s Opera House (Legends of New Orleans tour) to The Corner Hotel and torn up festival stages across the country from Bluesfest and WOMADelaide to Wangaratta Jazz, this is a Grammy Award winning album tour not to be missed.
A respected peer of such New Orleans R&B icons as Dr. John and the late Allen Toussaint (who wrote most of the horn arrangements for GoGo Juice) Jon Cleary came to international fame through his work in the bands of Taj Mahal, John Scofield, Dr. John and Bonnie Raitt, with Raitt unabashedly dubbing him “the ninth wonder of the world.”
Support act is Brass Knuckle Brass Band.
