Jazz in the Park w/ Bonerama
Tonight @ Cathedral Square Park, 6:30 p.m.
Formed by two trombonists in Harry Connick’s band, the unfortunately christened Bonerama is a rock band disguised as a jazz band. Though their brass-based line-up suggests jazz, their repertoire leans heavily on classic-rock jams, covering staples from Led Zeppelin, The Edgar Winter Group, Jimi Hendrix and The Beatles. Nonetheless, the New Orleans group is a favorite at jazz festivals—they even recorded their latest record, Jazz Fest 2008, at one. It was their fourth consecutive live album from a band that has yet to—and very well might never—enter a studio.
