Johnny & The Mongrels

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 EP “You Ain’t Ready,” Johnny & The Mongrels is described 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 and festivals such as The Aggie Theatre, Hodi’s Halfnote, Ziggie’s Live Music, FoCoMX, Cheesman Park Art Festival & Gnarly Barley Brewfest in 2016-17 and sharing the stage with artists Musketeer Gripweed, Shakedown Street, Samantha Fish, Tab Benoit; Johnny & The Mongrels are moving towards finishing their 2nd EP, and launching a midwest/southern states tour for Summer 2017.
