TENRY JOHNS BLUES BAND W/ CLAUDETTE MILLER


CLAUDETTE MILLER

In 2010 Claudette Miller became a regular vocalist at BLUE CHICAGO and continues to wow the audience with every performance.

Her sweet and sultry voice will have you sharing the passion and intensity she projects in her songs. Claudette has seen her share of the blues, happy and sad. Since early childhood the blues was something that she heard often in the Chicago neighborhood where she grew up. People came from miles around just to hear the street musicians tell their stories to the crowds.

At age 16 Claudette started singing with a group and several years later she met the late great Albert King and shared the stage with him. She fell in love with the blues and has been captivated by the true sounds of the blues every since.

Claudette has had the pleasure of performing with many of the Blues greats and feels truly blessed to have shared the stage with some of the best artists that Chicago has to offer - Lil Milton, Tyrone Davis, Lonnie Brooks, Billie Branch and the late KoKo Taylor.

Claudette has also performed at the Chicago Blues Festival, is the lead vocalist for the Tenry Johns Band and  wrote and produced her first CD “All in Time” in 2007.


TENRY JOHNS

BLUES BAND

Entertaining audiences at BLUE CHICAGO since 2010,  Tenry brings his love of the blues to the stage with such a fun and energetic presence that he's known as TJ "the King Kong Rocker". With four albums under his belt, Tenry has come a long way from his humble beginnings in a small town in the Delta called Shelby, Mississippi.

Tenry started his own band at the age of 15 while he was still in high school.  After graduating in the mid '60s, his family moved to Chicago. Shortly after hitting town, Tenry looked up his cousin, notable local singer/songwriter and performer, Johnny Drummer, and the two started playing together regularly. Eventually, Tenry and his brothers formed "The Johns Brothers Band" playing behind the fabulous Denise La Salle and her protege, Bill Coday.

Tenry is truly an authentic blues man of our day; carrying on his family’s legacy as one of Chicago's Ambassadors of the Blues to the world.
