I Got The Blues...and I Like It.

In a city dominated by jazz, funk, and hip-hop, bluesman John Lisi is an exception to the rule. If you like your rice and your music dirty, Lisi is the man for you. His whiskey-soaked vocals are perfectly paired with gritty backwoods guitar licks (“Hit The Ground Running”), blistering solos, and down-and-out lyrics (“Woke Up Pissed”).

Backed by his bandmates, Jimbo Mathubass and Cody Dickinson (of North Mississippi All-Stars), Lisi has created a unique blend of timeless blues originals (“Can You Dig It?”), explosive rock-and-roll, and lowdown Delta swamp-funk. Lisi will be playing with his band, Deltafunk, February 25th, at Banks St. Bar & Grill. Call (504) 486-0258 for more information.
