Ivas John Band

09/21/2017 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
“Refreshing to hear a new band that clearly has a foundation in the blues, and not funk or rock like so many others.” –Chicago blues legend and Grammy Nominee Billy Flynn

“Between his own muscular originals and his Catholic sense of tradition, you’ll want to join him in never taking the easy way out of the blues.” –Riverfront Times

“Fortunately for us, the listening public, Ivas has a very real, deep love for blues and roots music in all its varieties. Tasty is the word for his playing and singing styles!” –STL Blues.net

“From the cool, beatnicky swing of the first track “Light of Day”, to the toe-tapping front-porch slide and fingerpicking on “Good Potatoes” and “Carolene” , to the lush, weeping, and mournful “Would it make a Difference” and “I Won’t Make a Move”, to the tribal banjo roll of “The River Crossing”, to the Neville Brothers-esque “Cruel to Me”, this effort is undeniably the work of an accomplished artist with no shortage of ideas.” -Blues Blast
