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.

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.

living the musicians' life, giving us the unique CINCINNATI
