Jonathon"Boogie"Long / Press

"Jonathon “Boogie” Long will be joining the great B.B. King on his upcoming tour. These two gurus of the blues touring together is sure to stir up a lot of excitement for many fevered fans, as their show should bring the audience a truly memorable live musical experience. By digging up the deep roots of B.B.’s down home American blues and blending them with Boogie’s uniquely buoyant style, the sound is bound to be sweet."

“A unique name – Jonathon “Boogie” Long and The Blues Revolution – familiar to the local blues scene, is on the road with a name blues will never forget: BB King. The three-piece band currently consists of Long on guitar and vocals, Jason Corley on drums, and Chris Roberts on bass. The tour will take The Blues Revolution along the East Coast, performing to sold-out crowds in theaters and auditoriums that seat 1,200-5,000 people.”

“*Now, Long has his own name on the bill. In 2011 he won the Guitar Center King of the Blues award, increasing his spotlight. Long has no trouble filling that spotlight. He’s a big guy, decked out in tailored suits, and for a large part of his show, he can be found shredding out a blistering solo in the middle of the crowd, his face screwed into an ecstatic rictus. He is the ringmaster, trapeze artist and human cannonball of a live blues-rock circus. *For most twenty-three-year-old musicians, these kinds of sentiments have more to do with their dreams than their reality, but Jonathon “Boogie” Long is a living embodiment of the modern state of the blues.”

“Continuing its support of aspiring artists, Guitar Center (www.guitarcenter.com), the world's largest retailer of musical instruments and equipment, today announced that Baton Rouge, LA's own Jonathon "Boogie" Long has risen above thousands of other guitarists and been crowned the winner of its fifth annual King of the Blues (www.guitarcenter.com/kingoftheblues), the nationwide search for the next great undiscovered blues guitar player. Last week, Long beat out five other finalists at the House of Blues in Hollywood, CA in front of a live audience and a panel of celebrity judges, and shared the stage with world-renowned guitarist Warren Haynes-- Grammy Award-winning member of Gov't Mule, the Allman Brothers Band and the Dead”

“Jonathon “Boogie” Long, this years’ winner of Guitar Center’s King of the Blues competition, is pleased to announce the release of his first EP, Jonathon “Boogie” Long:The Pete Anderson Sessions. The three original songs were produced at Little Dog Records’ Studio by Grammy Award winning producer/guitarist Pete Anderson. The recording and mixing time were a part of “Boogie’s” prize package for winning the fifth annual nationwide search for the next great undiscovered blues guitar player. ”
