Jonny Lang show
Jonny Lang, the Grammy Award-winning blues rock prodigy, will play Feb. 13 at MontBleu.
Jonny Lang became a professional musician at age 12, when he began playing with the Bad Medicine Blues Band. Several months later, he quickly became their leader and the newly renamed Kid Jonny Lang and the Big Bang relocated from Fargo to Minneapolis to release their debut album "Smokin'" in 1995.
"Lie to Me," the 1997 multi-platinum album propelled by the hit title track, introduced Jonny Lang to a national audience. He won a Grammy Award for Best Gospel Album in 2006 for "Turn Around" and his 2013 album release "Fight for My Soul" solidified his reputation as one of the best guitarists of his generation. At Lang’s live concerts, audiences enjoy high-octane blues guitar and vocals flavored with shades of R&B, soul, gospel, hard rock and funk.
