Johnny & The Mongrels is a high-powered, New Orleans-influenced band that is “the perfect combination of a funk filled heart & a deep bayou soul.” Its founders, currently based in Fort Collins, Colorado, are singer/songwriter Johnny Ryan and singer/bassist/songwriter Jeff Bostic. Their debut LP, “Creole Skies,” was produced by JoeBaby (Snapped on the River Music) and Scott Sharrard (formerly of The Gregg Allman Band). The album was recorded at the famous Dockside Studio in Maurice, Louisiana, home to eight Grammy-winning albums.
The band features a heavy-hitting lineup of veteran rock and R&B musicians, including keyboardist Bill McKay (Derek Trucks Band, Leftover Salmon), drummer Eddie Christmas (Jon Cleary, New Orleans Suspects), and Blues Hall Of Famer Bobby Messano on guitar.
The Mongrels have played many prominent venues and music festivals across the nation, sharing the stage with national touring artists including Sharrard, George Porter Jr, Ivan Neville, Bob Malone (John Fogerty), Deanna Bogart, Shakedown Street, Samantha Fish, Honey Island Swamp Band, and Bobby Messano (Steve Winwood).
“Mongrels music” is highly influenced by the grooves and feel of New Orleans, but the songs tell stories as well, as they are sung and played from the heart, giving them a depth and authenticity all their own. “With the vocal soul of Otis Redding & the instrumental chops of the Meters, Johnny & The Mongrels will sonically transform you to another place where you can smell the magnolias & the beignets are warm!” raved JD Nash of Americana Highways.
