The Baroque Room - Jon Cleary & The Absolute Gentlemen
Fusion Boutique Presents is delighted to announce JON CLEARY & THE ABSOLUTE MONSTER GENTLEMEN (US)
DYNA-MITE World Tour Live in concert at the Baroque Room, Carrington Hotel, Katoomba, Blue Mountains - THUR 17th OCT.
A Grammy award winning, global touring and studio force, Jon Cleary quite simply embodies the sound of New Orleans.
Throughout the second half of 2019, he takes that experience to stages across the globe on his massive Dyna-Mite World Tour, bolstered by the presence of his long time band The Absolute Monster Gentlemen.
Jon Cleary is one of music’s great anomalies. A Kent raised Englishman turned certified New Orleans music legend after gracefully inhabiting the Crescent City and everything it has to offer over the course of 30 plus years. Jon has graced stages, shared rooms with and gained respect from everyone from Allen Toussaint to Tom Jones, Dr. John to Bonnie Raitt, Fats Domino to Eric Clapton, Taj Mahal to BB King, even Brian May to D’Angelo.
After another incredible turn at the famed New Orleans Jazz Fest in April, fans in Europe, North America, Asia and Australia will now have the chance to witness Jon and his crew take to some of the most famous venue and festival stages on the planet across this remarkable 60 date journey, featuring an eight show run at London’s Ronnie Scott’s, a string of European dates with long time friend and jazz legend John Scofield and an expedition to Havana to explore the roots of Cuban music, art and culture.
“Cleary can be an absolute monster on his own, but Cleary’s full combo R&B is as broad, deep and rolling as the Mississippi River, the combined swinging product of local keyboard tradition, Cleary’s vocal-songwriting flair for moody Seventies soul and the spunky-Meters roll of his Gentlemen” - David Fricke, Rolling Stone
