The week ahead including The Handsome Family...
We hope this update finds you fully rested after your Bank holiday.
It’s another busy and exciting week ahead for Bonanza & Son and we sincerely hope you will join us in this.
On Wednesday evening we are honoured and excited to be DJing with The Handsome Family at The Islington Assembly Hall. This is gonna be a terrific gig. The Handsome Family’s new LP ‘Wilderness’ is arguably the best of their career which is no mean feat as it is their tenth studio album from an illustrious career.
Support will be from the enchanting SnowApple and we should add that The Islington Assembly Hall is a truly stunning venue and one of our favourites in London.
Earlier that day at 4:30pm we will of course be broadcasting our Resonance 104.4fm radio show which will include the rest of our live session and interview with Josh Rouse plus an exclusive and brand new song from Bloodshot records' Ha Ha Tonka. Tune in on 104.4FM in London or www.resonancefm.com
On Thursday it’s our long running, monthly night ‘Countrier Than Thou’ at The Lock Tavern when we will have a very welcome return from SOCIETY + The Ramshackle Union Band as well as a guest DJ set from ace blogger, pod caster and all-round music aficionado and music obsessive Rob Morgan (If There Is Hell Below)... Full details below.
On Saturday evening we are DJing at The Lauriston Pub, 162 Victoria Park Rd, London, E9 7JN with a varied Rock ’N’ Roll set from 9pm-12:30am.
Finally on Sunday we are back at The Three Crowns on Stoke Newington Church St. N16 with a laid-back Sunday set of Film Soundtracks, Psych’, Country and Americana from 6-11pm
Have a splendid week and we hope to see you at one of this week's events,
Bonanza & Son.

'Countrier Than Thou’
@ The Lock Tavern
Thursday 30th May 2013
A welcome return to The Lock Tavern stage for our favourite three-piece, Country-Rock band from the deep south of Sussex who excel in sumptuous, three-part harmonies that set them apart from their peers in an already fertile crop of Americana & Country Rock ‘up and comers' in the UK.
The bands sound has echoes of C.S.N.Y, The Band, The Heartbreakers, The Jayhawks, Wilco ,The Rolling Stones and The Faces as well as an original, core sound which has secured them live slots at The Maverick Festival as well as rave responses and play-listing from BOB HARRIS on his BBC RADIO shows.
Society's assuredness has secured them support slots with established Americana acts including Eve Selis, Deadstring Brothers, Corb Lund, Luke Doucet and The Wailin’ Jennys as well as two tours of duty in Canada alonside a string of dates in the American Mid-West as well as a BBC Radio2 live session on The Bob Harris show no less.
Here at Bonanza & Son we suspect the Society lads have a bright future ahead of them on the 'not-too-distant’ horizon.
The Ramshackle Union Band are a harmony driven, Folk & Americana four-piece. Rich and sumptuous vocals swirl and swoop around uplifting guitar, banjo, bass and drums. The bands rousing, live performances are fast becoming legendary, cementing a reputation as one of Britain’s leading purveyors of Old Time, Authentic Folk, Bues. and Rustic-Americana with a grinding, Psychedelic edge.
+Bonanza & Son (ResonanceFM) DJ Set:
Radio Presenters, DJs and Club night promoters playing traditional as well as the most cutting edge examples of Americana and Country with a few oddities to twist your heads plus special selections from our up-coming compilation mixes ‘Gonzo-Country’ & ’Trpping In The Country’.
Bonanza & Son will be screening rare, cinematic, Americana curios for your visual stimulation and pleasure. Expect Acid Westerns, Revisionist Americana and Spaghetti Westerns.
+ Guest DJ
Rob ‘Space-Hips’ Morgan (If There Is Hell Below)
