At the invitation of Key west high band leader Mike Truhan, all seven members of Bonerama offered, with evident enthusiasm, to put on a clinic at the High School on Monday afternoon.
It was so well received that many of Key West’s budding musicians, properly chaperoned of course, turned out for the first set of their Green Parrot gig. The musicians did this all with great pleasure and took the time to chat with many of the kids before the show, drawing them out with questions about what instruments they played and where their musical interests lie.
So on top of the primo music these guys laid out, they gave something a little extra. They are real musical ambassadors, not just for New Orleans, but for musicians everywhere. Hey, that’s just the kind of hairpins these guys are.
