Among many other awards and honors, Monk is a National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Award recipient and a Grammy-nominated musician.
“Jumpin” Johnny Sansone is an electrifying blues singer, songwriter, harmonicist, accordionist, guitarist and piano player who was nominated for 7 different music awards in 2012, including his national Blues Music Award, following his 2011 release, “The Lord is Waiting and The Devil is Too.”
Grammy Award-winning guitarist, singer and songwriter John Fohl, formerly of the popular band Cherry Poppin’ Daddies, has played and toured with artists like Dr. John, Clarence ‘Gatemouth’ Brown, Shemekia Copeland, Charlie Musselwhite, Bo Diddley, The Blind Boys of Alabama, Johnny Sansone, and more. The Montana native has made New Orleans his home for some time, having collaborated for 30 years with several of the city’s musical greats.
