The Claudettes

Oct 3, 2016

The Claudettes mix Chicago piano blues with the full-throttle energy of rockabilly and punk, jazz-age echoes of burlesque and vaudeville, and the sultriness of '60's pop-soul to write a new chapter in American roots music. The band loves to push the boundaries, and Johnny Iguana's piano is the antagonist.

The Claudettes also include Sioux Falls native Zach Verdoorn on bass and vocals, Berit Ulseth on vocals and Matt Torre on drums.

The fall of 2016 finds them in the recording studio with producer Mark Neill (Black Keys, Old 97's, Los Straitjackets).

The Claudettes were captured at Jazzfest 2016, presented by the Sioux Falls Jazz & Blues Society, for No Cover, No Minimum Radio.
