LANSING, Ill. (March 28, 2019) – Head Honchos will perform at JJ Kelley’s this Saturday, April 6. The free show will begin at 9:00pm and will feature songs from their latest album, Bring It On Home.

Bring It On Home (Grooveyard Records) is the debut studio disc by this hard-working band from Valparaiso, Indiana, featuring the dual twin-guitar attack of father and son Rocco Calipari Sr. and Rocco Calipari Jr.

Rocco Calipari Sr. is a skilled teacher of guitar, who, since 1995, has also played lead guitar for renowned Chicago-based blues group Howard and The White Boys. Famed blues guitar great and Legends club owner Buddy Guy—who lent his skills to H&TWB’s album, The Big Score—has been a longtime mentor to the group. During his long career, Calipari Sr.—one of Chicago’s great contemporary blues guitarists—has played with Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry, Carl Weathersby, Son Seals, and many more, in 40 states and 12 countries around the world.

Rocco Jr. first sat in with Howard and the White Boys when he was 15 years old. He attended the Guitar Institute in Los Angeles, where he studied with Carl Verheyen (of SuperTramp renown), jazz/blues great Scott Henderson, and famed blues instructor/writer, Keith Wyatt. His approach to the guitar, while grounded in rock and blues, is keenly aimed at a post-modern interpretation of American roots music.

JJ Kelley’s is located at 2455 Bernice Road in Lansing, Illinois. The kitchen is open until 11:00pm, serving the Kelley’s classics that JoEllyn is famous for. Visit facebook.com/JJKelleys for more information.
