Johnny and the Mongrels - Mama Said (Official Music Video)
Johnny & The Mongrels is a high-powered, New-Orleans-influenced band that has been described as "the perfect combination of a funk-filled heart and a deep bayou soul." Its founders, currently based in Fort Collins, Colorado, are singer/songwriter Johnny Ryan and singer/bassist/songwriter Jeff Bostic. The band has played many prominent venues and music festivals nationwide, sharing stages along with way with Scott 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). Along with Ryan and Bostic, guitarist Scott Sharrard (Gregg Allman, Levon Helm), keyboardist Bill McKay (The Derek Trucks Band, Leftover Salmon) and drummer/percussionist Eddie Christmas (The Black Crowes, Jon Cleary) comprise the core band on CREOLE SKIES. Squeezebox legend Roddie Romero, pedal steel ace Marty Rifkin and soulful sax man Craig Dreyer are among the roots music virtuosi who make guest appearances. JoeBaby Michaels (Neville~Jacobs, Shaun Murphy) and Sharrard produced the sessions at the fabled Dockside Studio in Maurice, Louisiana.
