Gerry & Jono, A Foot-Stomping Duo
Long-standing musical relationships are hard to come by these days, but these guys have stood the test of time, with a unique musical chemistry that never fails to deliver.
Having played around the Auckland scene together for a few years, they traveled to Spain, playing in the resorts for a couple of summer seasons, before moving to Ireland, living and playing music in Connemara on the Atlantic coast of the Emerald Isle for a year, with occasional gigs in Dublin.
Now, back in Auckland, their music continues to entertain and delight audiences of all ages!
- Gerry O’Neil: Acoustic guitar, harmonica and vocals. With a list of credits that include several top Scottish bands and professional recordings, Gerry plays with a range of styles, reflecting his experience. His Scottish humour and lively banter always goes down well with the crowds.
- Jono Lonie: Mandolin, Fiddle, Tin whistle, Low whistle, Uillean (Irish) pipes, Bones, Bhodran, Jono’s abilities transcend musical styles and genres. His talents have found him playing in bluegrass stage productions, country bands, rock bands, as well as reaching phenomenal heights in composition and performance of his preferred musical genre, traditional Irish music.

“We hired Gerry and Jono for a family birthday celebration and cannot recommend them highly enough. Fantastic sounds to entertain our guests. Professional, prompt and easy to deal with. Our two year old son and our 86 year old grandmother was dancing away. This music was a hit with everyone! Many thanks”Alan Froggatt
