Bonerama to Play a Pair of South Florida Shows

Bonerama's name sums up its MO perfectly: The New Orleans act is all brass and sass. The "bone" part of the group's name isn't what you might immediately think (although it's clearly a double-entendre) — it's a reference to the group's instrument of choice, the trombone. Founding players Mark Mullins and Craig Klein were originally 'boners for Harry Connick Jr.'s band when they started the side project in the late '90s, and since then, they've rounded out the lineup with more trombones and a sousaphone as well as a guitarist and drummer to keep things swinging. Together, all play a very identifiable New Orleans brand of rowdy, party-time tunes that fall somewhere within swing, funk, and marching band. In other words, it's 100 percent impossible to hear this outfit and stay still or seated.
