Saturday Night - 11:45pm to 1:30am @ Avogadro's Number | All Ages

Swamp Funk & Blues

Johnny & The Mongrels is a Fort Collins, CO based project that draws upon the sounds of Funk, Soul & Blues and has been described as "New Orleans infused, Swamp Funk & Blues."
 
Recently having released their debut EP "You Ain't Ready," Johnny & The Mongrels has been slated as, "a band with thoughtful songwriting & a seemingly innate sense of blues rhythm & vibe. Fun, upbeat and full of energy, this is one Colorado band bridging the gap between NOLA and The Rockies in fine style," by DAWN DUNCAN - Northern Colorado Scene Magazine.
 
Johnny & The Mongrels have been awarded numerous accolades including recognition as a top 10 band of 2016's Scene Magazine's Fresh Talent Showcase, as well as an invitation to be a member of The SpokesBuzz Springboard Program in 2015, directed by Dani Grant (Mishawaka Amphitheater).
 
Having played prominent venues such as The Aggie Theatre, Hodi's Halfnote & Ziggie's Live Music in 2016 and sharing the stage with notable artist Musketeer Gripweed, Shakedown Street, Samantha Fish, Tab Benoit; Johnny & The Mongrels have had a productive, career building year. Currently, they are finishing their 2nd EP and a midwest/southern states tour for Summer 2017 is on their schedule.
