The Claudettes bring the barrelhouse thunder

Call it “Brother Ray meets the Ramones,” “Barrelhouse Thunder” or as Sound Opinions’ Greg Kot said, “Chopin meets the Minutemen.” Or maybe, just call it great music. The last time the Claudettes stopped by the Morning Shift over two years ago, it was just Johnny Iguana and Michael Caskey — two guys with just a piano and drums. But their sound was so big you’d swear there were more. Now, there is more. The pair have added singer Yana for their new album “No Hotel.” The Claudettes join us ahead of a gig Friday Night at Buddy Guy’s Legends downtown.
