Seasoned with unrivaled soul that only native New Orleans’ artists can boast, Bonerama spins a three-trombone frontline into heavy hitting rock ‘n’ funk. In celebration of New Orleans’ famous Jazz & Heritage Festival, where the band will perform this Saturday on the Gentilly Stage, Bonerama is releasing their first ever studio recording, "Hard Times" today. Fans can download the song free of charge at www.BoneramaMusic.com for a limited time.
To offer fans even more access to rare and unreleased music, Bonerama, along with fellow NOLA funksters and labelmates Porter Batiste Stoltz, launched www.PartyGras2009.com to deliver fans funky new music each Tuesday all year long. The release might be a live show, a single of a brand new song, or an archival release from the bands’ vaults. But remember to visit often – all the free material released is available only for one week; until the next Tuesday, when new tunes are featured.
Bonerama’s Single Series, where the band releases one new single at a time, kicked off on Fat Tuesday with the release of their brand new song, "Big Fine Woman," available online now in the iTunes music store.
