Jeff Meleras and the Bokonons are an Ottawa band that brings an Americana type vibe and flavour to their songs. The Band consists of principal songwriter Jeff Meleras, local producer/engineer/multi instrumentalist Dave Draves, at whose Little Bullhorn studios The Friday Night Sessions was recorded, the amazing vocalist Piet Masone, and veteran punk rocker/folk rock troubadour Chris Page.

This album is a follow up to their first offering, Pot of Gold which was released in 2022. The Friday Night Sessions took place on a series of Friday Nights (go figure) starting in January of this year and features mostly apocalyptic songs about human folly, war, disharmony, and madness with a splash of a lonely love song added just because there is still lots of love in this world despite all of the above.

Song topics notwithstanding, the Bokonons will hopefully bring a few laughs with their colourful banter, and hopefully a few smiles with their sweet 4 part harmonies.

The crowd will be in for a special treat as in adition to being a Bokonon, Chris Page of the Stand, Camp Radio, and Expanda Fuzz fame will be opening things up with a set of his simply fantastic folk rock tunes.
