Bio: Ian began playing piano at the age of 6 w/ Mrs. Eleanor Fox and later also with Fred Dicesare. In 5th grade, he began playing Sax as well and was taught by local virtuoso, Tom Ellison. At the time, he was always singing in chorus from 4th grade through H.S. With the Greece Arcadia High Jazz Band, Ian performed at the Rochester Jazz Festival twice as a teenager. His first professional performance was with his father’s group, “NBT” in 2009. He played keyboards for the group in a packed house for two rush songs; ‘Limelight’ and ‘Subdivisions’. For the past two years, Ian has been a music business major at the Crane School in Potsdam, N.Y.

An intimate evening with John Mooney & Special Guests
Saturday, August 29
Doors at 7:30/ show at 8:30
Tickets: $15/advance $20/door
Available at Sticky Lips Henrietta/Aaron’s Alley
BIO: Throughout the years John Mooney has developed one of the most distinctive and easily identifiable guitar and vocal signatures of anyone alive today.
Part of the original impetus for his interest in music may have filtered down from his grandfather, a musician himself. “He used to play the mandolin and banjo back in the 20’s” says Mooney. “He even cut a couple of 78’s for the Peerless label that I’ve heard. It was really hot stuff, a kind of raggy jazz.“ John left home at 15 and began playing with Joe Beard at about that same time. Joe introduced him to the first and most enduring influence on the development of Mooney’s music, the legendary Delta blues singer, Ed “Son” House. Impressed by the 16 year old musician’s talent, Son and John soon became friends. “I wasn’t aware of what the opportunity meant, but I knew there was nobody better in Delta blues.“ Mooney cites Son’s heavily rhythmic style having a strong influence on him. In fact, the way Mooney adapts acoustic playing to a modern electric format is one of his most distinctive trademarks.
His newest disc, “Big Ol’ Fiya” with special guest Jon Cleary has been a long time coming but Mooney has brought some profound musical styles and songwriting to his signature syncopated delta blues sound. If there was ever a Mooney CD to own, this one is truly it. By far his most heartfelt, intimate, soulful and incredibly intricate vocals, this is a John Mooney album that is simply like none other.
