Bonanza & Son have been gig promoting, radio broadcasting and DJing for over ten years and have played a major role in the development and awareness of Americana and Country Music in London. They have regularly organised events and club nights from way back in the days when Country was still a dirty word round these parts and Americana was thought by most to be simply a typing error.
They have also forged a path for thousands of acts in the UK via their longstanding radio show on ResonanceFM where historical features and specials are broadcast alongside regular live sessions from both new and well-established UK and International acts from a wide variety roots genres, including Americana, Country, and Blues. Bonanza & Son were responsible for broadcasting the UK, radio debuts of many acts including Shovels & Rope and Sturgill Simpson.
