The band consists of Jon Roniger (singer/songwriter, guitar), Adam Everett (drums), Evan Paydon (bass), Ellis Seiberling (trombone) and Jon Bauer (trumpet, vocal). For 200+ shows a year, Jon Roniger and The Good For Nothin’ Band tour nationally and internationally. “Maniac World”, their first LP garnered rave reviews; “New Orleans based five piece The Good for Nothin’ Band practically crackle with chops on each cut.” (Lydia Hillenburg, Vents Magazine), “There’s something to satisfy every sensibility. This is an outfit with a boundless future.” (Michael Saulman, Gashouse Radio), Their sophomore effort “Second Shot” released in April of 2018 and singles “My World”, “Hello Beautiful” and “Do What Makes You Happy” released in 2019/2020 garnered the band appearances at Vinter Fest in Copenhagen, The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, The French Quarter Festival, Copenhagen Jazz Festival, Ingolstadt Blues Fest and Festival REM in France.
