The Drive-in Mondays

Categories: Local Bands/Ensembles / Music

The Drive-In Mondays are an acoustic indie duo based in Madison, Alabama. Their repertoire includes original songs and covers of classic and indie rock, with lots of harmony, some slide guitar and harmonica for variety. The Drive-In Mondays  perform regularly at bars and breweries in North Alabama.

The members of this duo are Jon Blakely and Ivy Corron. In recent years, Jon played guitar and sang in retro-rock bands Acoustimotive, Black Tupelo, and Measures of Loud. Prior to that he spent about a decade playing old-time string band music on fiddle and banjo with The Log Cabin String Band and Wolves A’ Howlin. Ivy previously played guitar and sang with Measures of Loud.

Having played in larger bands, Jon and Ivy are now exploring the sonic possibilities of an acoustic duo. They bring a less-is-more approach to composing original music and interpreting cover songs.

The Drive-In Mondays are currently booking gigs around North Alabama in support of the release of their first studio recordings. Be sure to sign up on the mailing list to get the latest updates on the group.
