Bones From Underground

Active since:

The band Bones From Underground first embarked on their musical voyage of discovery together as a cohesive Jazz Band in 2019. But their origin goes back earlier to when the band members made significant steps in the freelancing and teaching music world.

Bones From Underground combines a vintage sound with modern material to thrilling effect.
