Cleary Brings Big Easy to Buffalo

By Joyce Kryszak

Buffalo, NY – New Orleans is known for spinning out musicians who put their own mark on the eclectic mix that is the Big Easy sound. For Jon Cleary and his band, the Absolute Monster Gentlemen that sound is funk. The keyboardist and singer also tours with Bonnie Raitt. But Thursday night Cleary and his band perform at the Tralf as part of the Big Easy in Buffalo series.

WBFO's Joyce Kryszak caught up with Cleary when he arrived in town. He was a bit bleary-eyed after the flight from a gig in London. But Cleary still had plenty of energy to talk about his music and his adopted hometown.
