Jonathon Long hails from Baton Rouge and at 29 years old, he has established himself regionally in an area rich with blues legacy tracing to Buddy Guy, Kenny Neal, Tabby Thomas, Lightnin’ Slim and others. Yet, Long doesn’t try to emulate any one of them. Long has been growing his fan base non-stop. Playing festivals the world over, including his yearly spot at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival has honed his skills to a razor’s edge.
Jonathon has released two CDs to the critics delight on Louisiana Red Hot Records under the name Jonathon “Boogie” Long. He has performed many festivals and venues around the world including New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, Montreal Jazz Festival, Grolsch Blues Festival, Telluride Blues and Brews, and on the Legendary Rhythm and Blues Cruise. Jonathon’s blues continues to evolve without any barrios and without any restraints. His style, tone, and the way he delivers the song lyrically with the dynamics and soul that make him and his guitar a great story teller and an exciting Artist.
