About the band...

Acoustic folk-rock from the 60's, 70's, and other groovy decades.

Rich vocal harmonies, shimmering guitars, and a tight rhythm section. That’s what Bon Aqua is all about. Each set weaves through groovy folk-rock songs you know from artists like the Grateful Dead, Mamas and Papas, Jason Isbell, The Guess Who and Tom Petty. You might even hear a Foo Fighters song and a few originals in the mix, too.

The spring that feeds Bon Aqua originated in 2020 when front porches doubled as stages. Friends gathered in the grass with chairs and coolers and music floated through the air all around Nashville. It gave us all a taste of normal that fueled our souls during a time that was anything but. And when it was finally OK to get back on stage indoors and out, Bon Aqua had a long list of fresh takes on classic songs.

Bon Aqua performs at clubs, festivals and private events across Middle Tennessee, and we’re still at home on front porches and backyards.
