Jon Roniger and The Good For Nothin’ Band proudly plays all original grease slicked, jazz licked, funk-blues-rock that draws wayward wanderers from the streets and pulls them to the dance floor. In the six years since the band’s inception, they boast a host of local residencies on the highly competitive New Orleans music scene. The band consists of Jon Roniger (singer/songwriter, guitar), Brendan Michael Bull (drums), Bob Kling (bass), Jake Gold (keys), Ellis Seiberling (trombone) and Raph Zee (trumpetl). For 200+ shows a year, Jon Roniger and The Good For Nothin’ Band tour nationally and internationally. “Maniac World”, their first LP garnered rave reviews; “New Orleans based five piece The Good for Nothin’ Band practically crackle with chops on each cut.” (Lydia Hillenburg, Vents Magazine), “There’s something to satisfy every sensibility. This is an outfit with a boundless future.” (Michael Saulman, Gashouse Radio), Their sophomore effort “Second Shot” released in April of 2018 and singles “My World”, “Hello Beautiful” and “Do What Makes You Happy” released in 2019/2020 garnered the band appearances at Vinter Fest in Copenhagen, The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, The French Quarter Festival, Copenhagen Jazz Festival, Ingolstadt Blues Fest and Festival REM in France. The band released “Let’s Get Lost” in March of 2021 and “Live at 6010” in August 2021. Rave reviews came in again with the two new releases; “a band that is at the top of its game” (Dave Franklin, Dancing About Architecture), “you’re not going to hear much better than this” (Anastim Ducray, Stepkid.com), “those who appreciate new music, will definitely want to hear this album” (Woke Chimp), “powerful performance that contains infectious energy” (Beach Sloth Music Blog). “Hello Beautiful” goes live on May 21 around the world as a full-length album with some retreads and some new material. AJ Hall, from Jon Cleary and The Absolute Monsters Gentlemen, plays drums on the new record. “Hello beautiful” also features Eddie Bosco on percussion.
