The highly anticipated Johnny & The Mongrels debut album CREOLE SKIES is available now for download here.  A rainbow of Louisiana colors courses throughout CREOLE SKIES: a classic New Orleans second-line groove on debut single "Music Man"; a funky gumbo of churchy organ, wailing tenor sax and chicken-scratch guitar on the follow-up "Louisiana Girl"; a sensuous old-school R&B groove on the third single, "Creole Skies"; ... and throughout all 10 tracks dashes of zydeco accordion, gritty down-home blues and all the seasonings that flavor the Bayou State's unique musical sound.

 A surge of media enthusiasm preceded the album's release. Outlets brand it as "wonderful swamp funk" (Michael Hingston, Americana Roundup), "relaxed but irresistible" (JD Nash, American Blues Scene), "guaranteed to make you smile" (Stacy Harris, Stacy's Music Row Report) and "loaded with punch and power" (Chris Spector, Midwest Record Entertainment). Others proclaim "When you're itching for layers of New Orleans energy, reach for the CREOLE SKIES and you'll be satisfied" (Melissa Clarke, Americana Highways) and "your soul will be grateful for the musical voyage ...The album succeeds in establishing exquisite worlds wherein each song is able to deliver text and subtext" (Greg Victor, Parcbench).

The core band on CREOLE SKIES consists of lead singer/songwriter Johnny Ryan, bassist/singer/songwriter Jeff Bostic, guitarist Scott Sharrard (Gregg Allman, Levon Helm), keyboardist Bill McKay (The Derek Trucks Band, Leftover Salmon) and drummer/percussionist Eddie Christmas (The Black Crowes, Jon Cleary). Guest artists include tenor saxophonist Craig Dreyer (Keith Richards, Joan Osborne) and button accordionist Roddie Romero (Marcus Miller, Bobby Rush). Recorded at the historic Dockside Studio in Maurice, Louisiana, CREOLE SKIES was co-produced by Sharrard and JoeBaby Michaels (Ivan Neville, Bobby Messano).

Johnny & The Mongrels Open For George Porter Jr!

(MDT, UTC-06) (MDT, UTC-06)

Washington's, 132 Laporte Ave., Fort Collins

Johnny & The Mongrels are honored to open for one of the true icons of Funk Music; New Orleans Music! George Porter Jr. is an award-winning bassist, songwriter and vocalist. He is a founding member of New Orleans’ seminal funk band, The Meters and widely recognized as one of the greatest bass players of all time. Formed alongside Art “Poppa Funk” Neville, Leo Nocentelli and Joseph Zigaboo Modeliste, the pioneering R&B funk outfit hit the scene on the streets of the Crescent City in the 1960s, to ultimately become one of the progenitors of the funk music genre. The groundbreaking collective carved out syncopated polyrhythms and grooves inherited from New Orleans’ deep African musical roots. Porter’s heavy pocket and fat notes formed the rubbery bass lines behind funk classics like their signature “Cissy Strut,” the now classic 1969 funk instrumental released as a single from their eponymous debut album, which reached No. 4 on the R&B chart and No. 23 on the Billboard Hot 100 respectively. While the group rarely enjoyed massive mainstream success, they are widely heralded alongside James Brown, Sly Stone, and George Clinton’s Parliament/Funkadelic as the founding fathers of funk.
