Formed just over a year ago, the Bumblin’ Bones
is the latest rock ’n’ roll venture from veteran songwriter and guitarist Ian Hinkley, bassist Matt Ruff and drummer Taylor Diaz. All three performers have varied histories, playing everything from hard punk to Latin folk. The trio has set upon a dynamic and heartfelt brand of rock, and this week the Bumblin’ Bones unleash their debut album, Crumb Bum
. On record the band is a lively concoction of expressive music, and in concert, they bring a barroom ruckus in the best ways. The Bumblin’ Bones play their release show on Friday, May 15, at Burgers & Vine, 400 First St. E., Sonoma. 9pm. Free. 707.938.7110.
