Jon Cleary is today one the most outstanding musical performers in New Orleans.
He has found his place with the elite of the music city and is a specialist in the challenging art of mastering its diverse piano traditions and music styles. Cleary’s performances sparkle. He alternates seamlessly between piano and guitar and dishes up funky Cresent City rhythms à la Dr. John, Alan Toussaint, Neville Brothers, Earl King and Fats Domino. Cleary was part of Bonnie Raitt’s band for ten years and will provide the perfect chaser after Raitt has played in the Archbishop’s Courtyard earlier the same evening
