Bonehead

October 20 @ 10:00 pm - 2:00 am

A Brief Bio…. …Jason Mannon truly began his professional musical career during his years fronting the very popular Philadelphia area nightclub band, Bonehead. Throughout much of the 90s and into the new millennium, Jayy could be found perfecting his vocals and performance style in one packed, smoky bar after another. During these years he also began to explore the other side of his artistry that of a songwriter. As Bonehead began to mix in a few of his early writing efforts into their play lists, favorable audience reaction soon pointed the band in another direction completely. The nightclub business became a means to an end as more and more of Jayys music worked its way into their shows. Slowly and without fanfare, Jayys music and his reputation as a serious songwriter grew. An EP debut CD was met with great local success and was followed by even wider popularity with the groups second indie offering, Fade. As the success of this record spilled beyond the borders of the Philly area, national attention was finally focused on Jayys music. In early 2001, legendary producer Don Gehman (John Mellencamp, REM, Hootie & The Blowfish) was so impressed with Jayys songs, he immediately offered the band a recording contract with MCA Records. Bonehead soon became Familiar 48 and headed to Los Angeles for an extensive and exhausting 3-month recording period. Those efforts yielded Wonderful Nothing – an album whose poignant reflections on lost loves and the possibility of hope in the darkest moments touched a chord wherever it was heard. Its first single, The Question debuted as most added track at both Active Rock and Hot AC radio – a very rare feat in the record industry. Touring the country in support of this record added another dimension to Jayys ever widening experience as a musician. Based back home again in Philadelphia , Jayy begins to embark on a new chapter in his career that of a solo artist. Writing once again with Bonehead / F-48 guitarist and longtime songwriting collaborator Kevin Hug, brings the perfect atmosphere for renewed creativity. Bringing a wealth of knowledge, experience and subtle artistry to his new music, Jayy looks forward to communicating with his audience on an even more personal level. Even a casual listener to his songs knows that wont be difficult to achieve
