Exciting Bonanza & Son Week ahead...

Howdy Folks,
We hope this update finds you very well.

We’re not sure we can take much more excitement after last week’s absolutely ace interview with Jim Sherraden from The Hatch Print shop in Nashville and Muddy Roots signings The Tillers live session but this week is looking set to be even more exciting so we’ll pop a 70’s tranquilizer and crack on! Oh if you didn’t catch the radio show you can 'listen at your leisure’ at

•On Wednesday’s ResonanceFM radio show we are very excited to have a live session from Ex Drive By Trucker Jason Isbell.

Jason’s new album ‘SouthEastern' has been critically acclaimed on both sides of the Atlantic and it has not been off the Ponderosa stereo since we received it.

Jason will be playing songs from SouthEastern in the ResonanceFM studio on the run up to his SOLD-OUT gig at The Garage the same evening. He will be joined by fellow musician, songwriter and his wife Amanda Shires.

With roots in rural Alabama and a young, musical schooling in the hard-rocking, hard-living Alt-Country and Southern-rocking band Drive-By Truckers Isbell has gone on to carve a critically acclaimed solo career. During those early years Isbell is the first to admit he was intoxicated more often than not and his latest solo album SouthEastern consummately, candidly and sensitively examines this experience and his subsequent sobriety as well as simultaneouly taking us on a journey through his catharsis.

A match made in ‘ink’ heaven, Jason Isbell has the lines from Bob Dylan's 'Boots of Spanish Leather’ tattooed on his arm, whilst his wife, singer-songwriter Amanda Shires, has lines from Leonard Cohen's ‘Hallelujah' on hers. Tune in to hear how they further communicate this in song.

Bonanza & Son will also be running a competition to win copies of the soundtrack to Roberto Rodriguez latest movie ‘'Machette Kills' as well as playing the best of all the upcoming Country and Americana releases plus retro, vinyl gems & lots more…

Be sure to tune in at 4:30pm (UK time) on 104.4FM in London or

•On Thursday Bonanza & Son will be guest DJs at Laura Veirs show at The Islington Assembly Hall. Veirs latest album 'Warp & Weft' is the most accomplished album of her career and this show is set to be something very special especially as it is taking place in our favourite London venue.

•On Friday Bonanza & Son will be DJing at The Three Crowns on Stoke Newington’s Church Street from 9 til 2am playing records we’ve picked up recently plus some trusty, old, vinyl nuggets. Expect anything from the latest Wooden Shjips album to Dolly Parton and beyond and remember to bring your dancing boots!

•On Saturday it is time for our third, twice yearly, collaborative All Dayer ‘The Country Well Bonanza & Son Revue at Nambucca in Holloway, N7. The fun starts at 2pm til late and we have an amazing line-up including Turnstile Junkpile, Cheeseburger, The Snakeoil Rattlers, Trent Miller, Bob Collum, Boss Caine, Moonshine Shack, The Sonny Walters Band and many more. There will be Bonanza & Son DJs inbetween the bands to get you dancing into the early hours plus free food throughout the day all for just a fiver from the ticket link below or 6 quid on the door…
Nambucca, 596 Holloway Rd, London N7 6LB

We reckon come Sunday we’ll need a lie in and we’ll do it whilst snoozing to the repeat of our radio show at 11am. If you can’t catch either show as they go out on air you can listen later on

We hope to see you at one if not all of these events...

Have a great week folks; peace and love to all.
