A Tribute to Brian ONeill
On December 15, Brian O’Neill, charter member of the New Orleans-based Bonerama passed away following a heart attack. The band will return to the road later this week for a series of northeast shows, beginning on Wednesday in Baltimore at The 8X10 Club. Rejoining the group for this run will be fellow charter member Rick Trolsen. Looking ahead to next week, Bonerama will be back in its home city for a performance that will celebrate the life and work of the late trombonist/vocalist/pianist/vocalist. A Tribute to Brian ONeill will take place at Tipitina’s Uptown on January 19 and also will feature appearances by Luther Kent & Trick Bag, Dave Malone, John Gros, The Dukes of Dixieland and others.
