Event Details

Did you know that the humble trombone used to be a VERY popular instrument? Bonegasm is a vehicle for composers and audiences to rediscover the beauty of the trombone. Our goal is to make you forget you are listening to four trombone players! We commission today’s jazz composers for originals and arrangements to further our plight – world domination.
It is our mission to bring peace, love, and trombone to the unsuspecting masses. Please enjoy.
Bonegasm is the brainchild of Jennifer Wharton featuring music by up and coming artists like Sara Jacovino and Edward Perez as well as Grammy veterans like John Fedchock, Alan Ferber and Jim McNeely.
