Juke Boy Bonner Biography

American blues musician and songwriter from Texas. Weldon 'Juke Boy' Bonner played guitar among the juke-joints and bars of Houston as a 'one man band' (using a harmonica rack in the manner of Jimmy Reed or Bob Dylan). Much of his output was self-recorded in the Texas Blues style and has a distinct 'down home' flavor similar to that of Lightnin' Hopkins.
