Los Carnales Blues Band (Gig Calendar)

Los Carnales Blues Band
PAUL BONN - Vocals, Percussion

Paul started playing drums in the early 60s and has been a part of the St Louis music scene ever since. In the mid 80s, he moved up to being the singer and front man in several R&B and show bands. He has a natural and very distinctive voice. When you hear him, you know it's Paul Bonn. No one else. He has also raised a musical family, including LC drummer Derek Bonn and daughter Emily, who sings and plays percussion. Paul is the heart and focal point of Los Carnales.

PRESTON HUBBARD - Fender and Upright Bass, Vocals

Prez started playing bass at age 14, and went on to a long and illustrious career. He played with the legendary, original Roomful of Blues (including a Grammy nominated record with Big Joe Turner), the multi-platinum Fabulous Thunderbirds, Bonnie Raitt, Stevie Vaughan, jazz greats Roy Eldridge and Scott Hamilton, the original Blues Brothers, Nick and the Nitelifes, Ministry, Ruth Brown, Pinetop Perkins, Chuck Leavell, on and on. His entire life, discography, and hundreds of photos can be found on his web site: prestonhubbard.com


Derek began playing drums at age 10 and was taught by his dad, Paul. He was playing around St Louis professionally by age 13. He did stints with Blue Friday and Pennsylvania Slim before joining Shakey Ground (now Los Carnales) at age 21. With his superb drumming, he has played behind Nick Curran, Big George Brock, Tab Benoit, Boo Boo Davis, Ronnie James and Kirk Fletcher (Fab T-Birds), Kim Massey, and Arthur Williams to name but a few. Derek also boasts a bachelor's degree in Audio Production from Webster University.


Alec has been playing guitar for half his life. Aside from all the blues greats, his influences are Ronnie Earl, Kid Ramos, Duke Robillard, and Anson Funderburgh. He was a part of the CT blues scene, and cut his teeth in the clubs there. He has shared the stage with Mike Law, Darrell Nulish, Ryan Hartt, Hashbrown, and Chris Ruest. Alec has a very distinctive Strat style that suits Los Carnales perfectly, and has made St Louis his new home.
