"Known as Jonathon “Boogie” Long, he’s earned a reputation as a guitar shredder. However, his singing, songwriting, and eclectic range in addition has evolved his music into its own unique category" -- American Blues Scene
Jonathon “Boogie” Long is the ultimate example of pure talent and musicianship. His powerful and meaningful lyrics, breathtaking guitar riffs, and a dynamic vocal range well beyond his years, have made his live show a fan favorite at music festivals and venues all over the world.
He was the 2011 Guitar Center “King of the Blues” winner for best unsigned blues guitarist in America, is a Louisiana Music Hall of Fame inductee, and was also honored with his own day in the city of Baton Rouge, LA. He has shared the stage with B.B. King, Joe Bonamassa, Gov’t Mule, Gregg Allman, ZZ Top, Robert Cray, Dr. John, The Meters, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, and many more.
His 4-album discography, 2 of which landed him on the Billboard Top 10 Blues albums, spans a wide range of musical flavors and proves without a doubt that JBL can write and play anything and tries to have a little something that everyone can enjoy.
From the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, to the Troubadour in LA, to Romania, Kosovo, Germany and more, JBL has brought his magic mix of Bluesin’ rock-n-roll & creole soul to the masses.
