From The Bonesetters:
“Muncie-bred and Indianapolis-raised, we make music in old duplexes and share them with all kinds of alternative environs. We breathe in quiet sounds, and exhale louder sounds. A good mixture of western swing, surf rock, blues and images meant for dreams. We like you!”
Any time I get the opportunity to promote one of my favorite local bands I will capture the moment. The Bonesetters have been nothing short of brilliant for those of us watching. Their ability to continually get gigs while being proactive in the social media community is extremely developed for a local indie band. Lead singer, Dan Snodgrass is not only extremely talented as a musician, but also admirably talented when it comes to engagement. Snodgrass promotes his band, shares video clips of songs he loves, and shares his opinions on certain local topics. He understands his ability to self-market with free tools and executes. He is a bonafide marketer who just happens to front a great band and has amazing writing skills coupled with a Jeff Buckleyesque inflection.
Thought on Tracks friends The Bonesetters will be on Indiana Public Radio’s The Scene on Saturday, December 3 at 10 p.m. with Chicago’s Santah. This performance was recorded live at the now defunct Vollrath Tavern in Indianapolis.
Congratulations to the Bonesetters on a flawless year of music from a local standpoint. Let’s hope 2012 gets you guys recognized on the national stage. You deserve it.
