The Bonnevilles hit @TheCluny on tour

THE BONNEVILLES
CONFIRM UK & EIRE TOUR

FOR MAY & JUNE 



THE BONNEVILLES have announced a series of UK & Ireland shows for this spring.

The Bonnevilles are shaking Northern Ireland in a way it hasn't felt since Van Morrison & Them obliterated Club Rado in 1964 and Stiff Little Fingers blew apart The Trident in 1977! The Bonnevilles don't so much play punk blues as use it as a springboard to create a completely new genre. And now they release their 4th studio album Dirty Photographs with LA based Alive Natural Sound Records.

The Lurgan duo take Mississippi Hill Blues and Punk Rock and mix their own unique dark Northern Irish Punk Blues stew which drew the attention of the fore mentioned Alive Natural Sound which saw them release the award nominated “Arrow Pierce My Heart” on the label in 2016. 

The Bonnevilles formed in 2009 and quickly released their debut, and now, legendary album Good Suits & Fightin’ Boots on Motor Sounds Records.  McGibbon being a blues fan was moved to create The Bonnevilles after a brief time in another duo and being heavily inspired by RL Burnsides “ A Ass Pocket Of Whiskey” and bands like The Soledad Brothers, The Immortal Lee County Killers along with blues heavyweights like Howlin’ Wolf, Robert Johnson, Chess Records etc combined with McMullans heavy metal drumming style the band has become Europe's top alternative blues act. 


Playing the Deep Blues festival in Clarkesdale Mississippi and the legendary Junior's Juke Joint in Holly Springs in 2015 cemented the bands reputation as the real deal. Now the bands new album Dirty Photographs sees the band reach new creative fields, the same dark blues punk stew with added sugar.
