Soka Performing Arts Center is pleased to partner once again with the legendary Taj Mahal for a livestream performance from UC Theatre in Berkeley, California featuring Phantom Blues Band with Special Guest Jon Cleary.
When Taj Mahal sought to assemble a studio band for his 1993 release Dancing’ the Blues, little did he know at the time he had created an entire “sound” that would see the Phantom Blues Band become headliners at clubs, theaters and festivals around the world. Together and separately, the members of this two-time GRAMMY® Award-winning group have performed with Bonnie Raitt, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Little Feat, Elton John, The Rolling Stones and many more. Featuring Tony Braunagel (drums, percussion), Larry Fulcher (bass), Joe Sublett (saxophone), Mike Finnigan (keyborads/organ/vocals) and Jonny Lee Schell (guitar/vocals), PBB explores everything from Texas Blues to Memphis Soul.
British born New Orleans funk savant Jon Cleary is a virtuosic keyboardist, profoundly expressive vocalist, distinctive songwriter and GRAMMY® Award winner. His music pays homage to and proudly fills the void left behind by such Crescent City icons as Jelly Roll Morton, Fats Domino, Professor Longhair, Art Neville, James Booker and others. He has toured the world with the likes of Taj Mahal, John Scofield, Dr. John, Bonnie Raitt, and has led his own R&B/soul group the Absolute Monster Gentlemen for over two decades.
