Christmas is just around the corner and so this will be our final update of the year.
2013 has been one of the best years EVER for music as far as we are concerned and 2014 is already gearing up to be even better.
•First up we wanted to remind you that if any of you missed our fantastic live session and interview with Jonathan Wilson last week you can ‘listen at your leisure’ via our Mixcloud page here Just click the link…
Bonanza & Son 11:12:13 Jonathan Wilson interview & live session by Bonanza & Son on Mixcloud
•Tomorrow's radio show (Wednesday 18th Dec) is no less exciting including a live session from Essex' finest purveyors of Americana The Delta Jacks…
Plus we have just finished editing an interview and live session we recorded yesterday evening with Richard Buckner in situ at St Pancras Old Church and it is an absolute stunner…
It very nearly didn’t happen as only hours earlier Richard was being held in a holding pen by Belgian Customs when he should have been sound-checking… But arrive he did at the last minute and what a mind-blowing live session and gig.
To celebrate this miracle at Christmas and by way of an early Christmas present to our listeners we shall broadcast an extract of this onBonanza & Son on ResonanceFM at 4:30pm in the form of a special mix. We plan to air the entire interview and live session on the first show in the New Year as tomorrow will be our final broadcast until Wednesday 8th January 2014.
Tune in as always on 104.4FM in London or anywhere on www.resonancefm.com
Every Wednesday 4:30pm (UK time)
•On Thursday evening it is time, once again, for our monthly extravaganza that is The Countrier Than Thou Christmas Party and we have a fantastic bill including The Ramshackle Union Band… See full details below.
•On Friday Bonanza & Son will be DJing at The Three Crowns in Stoke Newington playing all the good stuff from Dolly to Dylan via Daft Punk for your Friday night drinking and dancing pleasure.
•On Sunday morning at 11am there is the repeat of our radio show from Wednesday and that is us pretty much done until the New Year Folks…
Follow Bonanza & Son on Mixcloud
We will also have some big announcements to make in the New year including two, brand new club nights, our slightly belated 10th Birthday Party plus some amazing, upcoming live guests on the radio show so keep an eye out for our next update.
We hope you all have a fantastically Merry Christmas and a happy and peaceful New Year from
Bonanza & Son

'Countrier Than Thou’
Country Christmas Party
FREE ENTRY ALL NIGHT.
@ The Lock Tavern
Thursday 19th November 2013
The Ramshackle Union Band:
A welcome return to The Lock Tavern stage for our favourite Stoke Newington Frontiersmen. The Ramshackle Union Band are a harmony driven, Americana-Folk four-piece. Rich and sumptuous vocals swirl and swoop Eagle-like around uplifting guitar, banjo, bass and drums. On their previous visit to Countrier Than Thou the bands rousing, live performance has become the stuff of legend, cementing a reputation as one of Britain’s leading purveyors of Old Time, Authentic Folk, Bues. and Rustic-Americana with a driving, Psychedelic twist.
+The Delta Jacks:
Proponents of an unholy melange of Country, Blues, Deep-South choogling and the rawest Rock 'n’ Roll. Imagine all three Hanks; Williams Snr, Jnr and the Third finding themselves at the Alabama/Essex crossroads, having sold their souls to the Dagenham Devil and then embarking on a road movie of epic proportions then you might be getting somewhere close to where these boys hang out ie the wrong side of the tracks where the Appalachian mountains high, lonesome sound bargains with the devil at the Mississippi crossroads.
+Bonanza & Son DJ Set (ResonanceFM):
Radio Presenters, DJs and Club night promoters playing traditional Country as well as the most cutting edge examples of Americana and Avant-Country with a few oddities to twist your heads.
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 Morgan TBC (If There Is Hell Below Podcast):
Obscure, Cosmic, Country-Rock of the highest order from the deepest-dug-crates by pod-caster, blogger, promoter and DJ extraordinaire Mr Rob Morgan… Be sure to tune in to his podcast every Friday evening.
