Hey Blues-E-News fans. Funky Kenny in Modesto, Ca., USA with another review of a touring Blues band. This time around, let’s take a look at The John Clifton Band. Based in Fresno, Ca, USA, this Chicago, Roadhouse style band will definitely get you on the dance floor.
Lead by the former front man of The MoFo Party Band, John Clifton runs the show with vocals and some great harp playing. Scott Abeyta joins on guitar while Matt Moulton on bass and Roman Rivera on drums hold down the low end. The tight foursome deliver a style that will take you back, way back. From the onset, you quickly become aware this is not the BALLAD show, tho they do a couple killer down and dirty blues tunes for the slow grinders. John is The Man in charge and you know it from the first note of the first song. Do not miss The John Clifton Band when they come to your area.
Until next time,
Stay Funky, Kenny
