BLUES WITH AN ATTITUDE...
Featuring Little Al Thomas on vocals and lead guitar and Sonny HIll on vocals and keyboard. Little Al has a voice made for blues and his fabulous guitar work sets THEM BONES above the rest. Sonny's vocal style and kickass keys compliments Little Al, reminiscent of Blues Greats, Sam and Dave. The bottom groove is provided by Larry Malott on bass and Tom Hamman on drums. Collectively the artists of THEM BONES have over 100 years of playing the blues all over the Midwest, East Coast, France and Italy.

ROCKIN' CINCINNATI BLUES...
The band's live shows feature a variety of Blues styles: Texas, Chicago, New Orleans, Memphis, and down home rhythm and blues -- all done with a good time feeling and lots of energy and soul. Ray Charles, Albert King, Freddy King, B.B. King, Muddy Waters, Lonnie Mack, the Stones, Tinsely Ellis, and Carl Weathersby are just a few of our favorite artists and playing their music in our own way is what we do best. Our sound is shaped by many years of playing in dark smokey clubs and living the musicians' life, giving us the unique CINCINNATI BLUES sound.

GIGS...
THEM BONES hosts a weekly Blues Jam Session every Sunday at Mansion Hill Tavern in Newport, Kentucky (see below) and has played at various clubs around Cincinnati including Doc's Place, Burbank's, Lattitudes, Paxton's Grill, Poppy's, Molly Malone's (Pleasant Ridge), The Slippery Noodle (Indy), Bushman's Brewhouse (Nashville, IN) and other local hotspots -- check our SCHEDULE AND SONIC BIDS WEB PAGE.
