New Orleans act Bonerama takes the brass-band tradition of its hometown and gives it a funky twist. Though the group is a full band complete with guitar and rhythm section, the focus is, as the name indicates, on trombones -- usually at least three of 'em. The result is a fusion of rock, jazz, and any other kind of horn-happy genres, with some extended jams thrown in.
They ring in the new year at the blues bastion that is Bamboo Room, with an extended set starting at 10 p.m. Get there early if you want a seat, as they're first-come, first-served -- though you'll be guaranteed standing room to dance.
Bonerama. 10 p.m. Saturday, December 31, at Bamboo Room, 25 S. J St., Lake Worth. Tickets cost $77.05 with fees. Click here.
