Fronted by pro-trombone activist and Harry Connick Jr. band vet Mark Mullins, New Orleans' Bonerama stands way out among contemporary brass ensembles. Sure, the band plays the usual second-line funk standards, but it also strays to covers like Zeppelin's "Moby Dick" and Edgar Winter's "Frankenstein." That's not to mention the visual thrill of a five-'bone front line and the whoop-whoop of the sousaphone. Also on the NOLA-centric bill is keyboard whiz Marco Benevento's tribute to late, great N'awlins piano man James Booker.
