Johnny & The Mongrels


Johnny & The Mongrels is a high-powered, New Orleans-influenced band that is "the perfect combination of a funk filled heart & a deep bayou soul." Its founders, currently based in Fort Collins, Colorado, are singer/songwriter Johnny Ryan and singer/bassist/songwriter Jeff Bostic. Their debut LP, "Creole Skies,” was produced by JoeBaby Michaels (Neville~Jacobs, Shaun Murphy) and Scott Sharrard (formerly of The Gregg Allman Band). The record features a heavy-hitting lineup of veteran rock and R&B musicians, including guitarist Sharrard, keyboardist Bill McKay (Derek Trucks Band, Leftover Salmon), drummer Eddie Christmas (Jon Cleary, New Orleans Suspects). The Mongrels have already played many prominent venues and music festivals across the nation, sharing the stage with national touring artists including Sharrard, George Porter Jr, Ivan Neville, Bob Malone (John Fogerty), Deanna Bogart, Shakedown Street, Samantha Fish, Honey Island Swamp Band, and Bobby Messano (Steve Winwood).
