MARC STONE PRESENTS: SUNDAY BLUES & BOOGIE featuring ERNIE VINCENT & THE TOP NOTES wsg Jonathon "Boogie" Long

bnb nov 11

Nominated New Orleans’ “Best Blues Artist” in the 2018 Best of the Beat Awards, slide guitarist, singer, producer and WWOZ-fm “Soul Serenade” host Marc Stone gathers all of the roots and branches to forge a smoldering, funky style all his own. Whether putting his originals front and center with the Marc Stone Band, exploring the deepest Delta roots with Son House protege John Mooney or celebrating the Creole Funk and Soul legacy with New Orleans’ vocal legend Marilyn Barbarin in the New Soul Finders!, Stone’s distinctive voice and touch set him apart from the pack.

Blues, disco, and R&B legendary band Ernie Vincent and The Top Notes have been making hits since the 70s. Most known for their funk anthem the "Dap Walk" this prominent band will grace our stage and show everyone why they've been around for decades.

With blues coursing through his veins, Jonathon “Boogie” Long picked up the guitar at the age of six and taught himself old gospel songs. Years later, he found himself playing weekly gigs at blues clubs and events around town. At fourteen, he left school to lay down his roots touring with local legends Henry Turner Jr. & Flavor from 2003 to 2005. In 2011, Boogie Long was crowned Guitar Center’s “King of the Blues” from a field of over 4,000 contestants, in the competition for #1 Unsigned Blues Guitarist in America. In April 2013, Boogie was tapped by B.B. King to support his four week tour. Also, he was given a prime slot at the New Orleans Jazz Fest Blues Stage. Quickly ascending from Baton Rouge to the main stage, Boogie Long is on track with his lifetime goal of championing blues music and its roots.
