The World Must Know Of Bonerama

Tuesday, January 01, 2008


Nothing against the group's singing of the anthem, but you're telling me the network that airs American Idol couldn't have gotten a band better than one named "Bonerama"? Via B-Rama's webpage....

The buzz on Bonerama grew with hometown acclaim (with the band winning numerous OffBeat Magazine Awards; and Mullins regularly topping Offbeat's trombone category), lots of roadwork, and a pair of live albums - the first recorded close to home at the Old Point in Algiers; the second on tour in New York. The Boston Herald called them a "bonehead's dream"; the Vail (CO) Daily noted that "the sound is fat and wet; sometimes downright lusty." As hometown music zine Offbeat put it, "That nerdy kid in the band room with the trombone just might have the last laugh after all."
Fat and wet my friends.....Bonerama is Fat and wet.

You know, you're doing yourself a great disservice to not add "Bonerama" as its own tag.

i'm glad they went local. they could have easily brought up some b or c-level group/act to do the anthem. considering the way the game turned out, bonerama was the highlight of the night.

I hadn't heard of Bonerama prior to their performance at the game. Being a Fox production, when I first heard the name I thought it was a group of striking writers from their series "Bones" who were musically inclined and had gotten together to earn a few bucks before heading back out to the picket lines. I always expect to see someone from "American Idol" on the scene and it was refreshing that didn't occur.

The Sugar Bowl usually goes local with its musical talent. I remember a few years ago Joel Colman (who is a cantor at a local synagogue) sang the national anthem, as well as "God Bless America" at halftime. And it was great.

when I heard that bonerama was performing I thought we were witnessing the return of Janet jackson to mainstream tv!
