Bonerama is an 18 + year old powerhouse touring band from New Orleans, LA. In addition to changing the way people think about the trombone, the sound of
Bonerama has become an influence and contribution to the sound of New Orleans music today. With newer acts such as Trombone Shorty and Big Sam’s Funky Nation joining them on on the national music scene, it’s New Orleans that has benefited with a newfound reputation as being a bonafide “Trombone Town”.
These bands carry the trombone like the trophy it truly is in New Orleans.
The band has performed and recorded with countless national artists such as R.E.M., OKGo, Tom Morello,
Wayne Kramer (MC5), Jill Sobule and so many more, all while bringing their distinctive sounds from New Orleans to a national spotlight. Festivals and events such as Monterey Jazz Fest to High Sierra Music Festival, Jam Cruise, Bear Creek Festival and of course the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival only outline the extensive festival work this band has under its’ name. National television appearances on CNN and HBO (Comic Relief, Treme) have further exposed Bonerama to a wide range of unsuspecting new viewers.
