Bonnie Logan / Bio

Bonnie Logan

Daughter of international virtuoso of the harmonica, Larry Logan, (now deceased).

Born in Lafayette, Louisiana, where she has resided since 1985. She has lived in 48 of 50 states in the U. S., due to her father's show business career.

Her first performance was at the age of 3, when she sang “You Are My Sunshine” on her father’s concert stage at the Chicago Theatre.

She started taking vocal lessons at age 7, when her piano instructor, Sister Helen Roper, also her chorus teacher in elementary school, encouraged her to develop her musical abilities, further than piano.

She continued to concentrate more on vocals, competing in state competitions, where she received several awards for her performances.

In 1972, she enrolled at the University of Louisiana Lafayette, voice being her major, theatre, her minor. She continued private vocal training for four additional years, by various University music professors at Birmingham Southern University, Birmingham, Alabama, as well as Peabody College for Teachers, in Nashville, Tennessee.

In 1976, she was given the lead role of Fanny Brice, in the play, “Funny Girl,” directed by Phillip Alford, (an American actor best known for his role as Jeremy 'Jem' Finch in the 1962 film, “To Kill a Mockingbird.”) presented by Birmingham’s Town and Gown Civic Theatre.

She performed, nightly, at The Fisherman Restaurant in Nashville, Tennessee, where she was featured on a local radio show, hosted by "Snooky" Lanson, the late former emcee of the Peabody Award winning television show, "Your Hit Parade," which ran from the 1930’s to the 1950’s. She was guest featured on several of her father’s concerts, as well as working with local Louisiana bands, latest one being The Skyliners of Lafayette, a 17 piece band, playing hits of the big band era.

She currently sings for private parties, weddings, and various functions. For booking information, email her at bonnielogan1@gmail.com.
