The Claudettes

TODAY: FRIDAY, JUNE 4 @ 1:00pm CST
“MIDWEST BEAT with Tom Lounges”

GUEST: JOHNNY IGUANA of "THE CLAUDETTES"

Today's "Midwest BEAT with Tom Lounges" will feature a call in by JOHNNY IGUANA of the red hot Chicago group, THE CLAUDETTES, whose latest album "HIGH TIMES IN THE DARK," was released in 2020, but due to COVID-19 never had a chance to really get much promotion.

This edition of  "MIDWEST BEAT with Tom Lounges" originally aired on FRIDAY, AUGUST 21st on 89.1 FM-Lakeshore Public Radio

Musical Guest:  JOHNNY IGUANA 

"MIDWEST BEAT with Tom Lounges" featured two great musical guests on this date. First up from 1-2pm was Chicago music maker JOHNNY IGUANA of The Claudettes fame.  Iguana spoke of  his debut piano blues album being release that very weekend.  

Selections from the album were spotlighted as Johnny spokes with Lounges about the making of the new album, its many celebrity guests, and why the time for a solo release is now.  What wil the future of The Claudettes be moving forward?   Listen as that very question gets asked.

 

The Claudettes fuse Chicago piano blues with the full-throttle energy of rockabilly and punk and the sultriness of ’60s soul to write a thrilling new chapter in American roots music. We have Johnny Iguana and Berit Ulseth to chat with Tom Lounges right here on Midwest Beat.
