Jon Truelson, the old codger of the group, came on board with Creamery Station back around 2014.

 

 

 

 

 

With Swamprat – Robert Crotty, Ed Crotty, Robert Mitchel and Pat Clouthier – Recorded live to mono cassette circa 1973 – MacTriff’s Cafe – Park St. – New Haven, CT. Jon takes the first solo and then we modulate and Robert flies with it – seems like only yesterday… Gosh, I miss the ole EchoPlex…

 

Some of his past projects include Swamp Rat with the legendary blues guitarist Robert Crotty, Elm City Blues Project, Fast Fingers, The WPLR Breakfast Band, The Tempos, The Sharkpool Orchestra, Jordan West & the Whole Shebang, Sunrise,  The Leasebreakers, Allen Ginsberg, Ray Bremser, Kathy Kreger, Rod Price among many others over the years.

When performing with Creamery Station, Jon plays a Nord 88-key Stage 2 keyboard, Vintage Yamaha SY77 synthesizer, Martin D-18 acoustic guitar and might occasionally frail a 5-string Banjo.

He has been threatening to break out with the Moog Theremin for some time now…

Be very scared…

Here’s a clip of Jon with The Leasebreakers from their 2010 European Tour.

  • Woah.. Where do we begin? How about with a huge thanks to Amy Johansson and all of the staff, volunteers, photographers, videographers, vendors, bands, sponsors, and everybody else that took part in throwing such an amazing event?! They did such a great job and it really showed. And of course a thank you to all of you that were there showing your support for this cause; it was truly a humbling experience to see so many people come together to say that enough is enough! Change will only happen when whole communities come together and we saw a glimpse of that this weekend; it was beautiful! Don’t forget to bring that home with you and continue to love and look out for one another. ❤ THIS WEEKEND: Saturday we will be doing a private event, but Sunday we will be down at Blazin Vibes in Milford, CT for a FREE OUTDOOR SHOW (event from 12pm-6pm / we play 4-6pm) with our friends in Not Here and Kazoo Crew Family Band. This is a rescheduled event after the one in April was rained out, so you know we have all been chomping at the bit to play this one for y’all; it’s gonna be a blast! Then after we are done at Blazin’ Vibes we will be headed down to Shelton to celebrate the life of our friend Bryan Wendland, who was unfortunately taken away too early earlier this summer. So if you knew Bryan come on down and show some love for his family! All proceeds go to his daughter. ❤ Photos by Chris Sidoruk Photography and Lisa Ryan
