Since bursting onto the scene in 1998, John Lisi has been hailed as one of the best guitarist slingers in Louisiana – a major rave for the most musical place in all the world. Indeed, Lisi is a master of the Dobro, mandolin, resonator and Stratocaster, as well as offbeat portrayals of everyday life turned into funky-bluesy-body-shakin’ music that just makes a person feel better.
Lisi not only thrives on the work…he loves what he does with “an unshakable belief in [his] original songs and being able to deliver them live, as well as honestly enjoying creating and performing.”
“Shut the Front Door” is Lisi’s brand of “delta funk” – that Big Easy blend of blues, rock, boogie and deep-fried funk – complete with the all essential ingredients: sassy female background vocals, kickin’ horns, in-the-pocket rhythm section, topped with stunning guitar riffs. If you have a taste for Delta cooking, then this, my friend, is your genuine, finger-lickin’ chicken on the bone!
