Jon Svetkey

Jon Svetkey's music hardly calls to mind patchouli-scented coffehouses--in fact, his foot-stomping antics have provoked his fans to form moshpits and . . . yell their own lyrics to his songs on more than one occasion. John's unusual style draws from any music that, as he says "is fueled by passion, intensity and integrity. It could be any music -- Otis Redding, The Clash, Bruce Springsteen--you name it."

Is it folk music with an attitude or thinking man's rock? He's worked with Richard Thompson, John Wesley Harding, John Gorka, and Loudon Wainwright III -- John Gorka says, "I like this guy, he's twisted!"

"Jon Svetkey is one of the Boston area's most gifted melodists." - Brett Milano, The Boston Phoenix

"Svetkey's blazing poetics take irreverent musical jabs at life's foibles . . ."--Patricia Smith, The Boston Globe

Folking disco, funking rock and grooving songs make this show the most fun you can have standing up!
