L to R: Jeremy Wakefield, T.K. Smith, Dave Stuckey, Wally Hersom and DJ Bonebrake

The Bonebrake Syncopators are a musical quintet that takes a unique approach to playing jazz from the early eras, including tunes such as 'Honeysuckle Rose', 'Three Little Words', and 'Sweet Georgia Brown'. Personnel include D.J. Bonebrake (X, Michael Penn, Victoria Williams, Syd Straw, etc.) on vibraphone; T.K. Smith (Big Sandy and the Fly Rite Trio, Smith's Ranch Boys) on electric guitar; Jeremy Wakefield (Asleep at the Wheel, Lucky Stars, Biller and Wakefield, Dave Stuckey and his Rhythm Gang) on steel guitar; Wally Hersom (Big Sandy and the Fly Rite Trio, Lucky Stars) on upright bass; and Dave Stuckey (Lucky Stars, the Dave and Deke Combo, Dave Stuckey and the Rhythm Gang) on drum kit. Both Jeremy and Dave make occasional vocal contributions to the set, enhancing a predominantly instrumental performance. The Bonebrake Syncopators create an eclectic sound that combines traditional jazz, be-bop, and western swing. Not too loud but definitely lively, the music is warm, sophisticated, and danceable.
