The Claudettes 

When: Wed., May 16 2018
Price: $5
It would be unbelievably inaccurate to confine Chicago band, The Claudettes, to a solitary genre. The band fuses jazz, blues, vaudeville, soul, and classical. Though their diverse yet structured style is fresh, their live shows are a throwback to early 20th century performances from a 1930s big band club to a 1920s speakeasy. For their new album, Dance Scandal at the Gymnasium!, they worked with Grammy-winning Black Keys/Old 97's producer Mark Neill and recorded at his Soil of the South studio for 10 days, using Neill's collection of vintage equipment including marxophones, mellotron sounds, rare fuzz pedals and old Gretsch drums and Rickenbacker bass. A song such as "Don't Stay With Me" features soulful vocals, driving guitars and a barroom piano riff as the band shows off its musical chops. (Jeff Niesel)
