PONTY BONE A huge part of the Austin scene the last two decades, accordionist Ponty Bone is, after all, completely unique...just like Texas. To define his style of music in a word is a difficult task, but, describing his mastery of his instrument, the word most often used is "awesome." Playing the accordion all his life has given him chops enough to mix his Texas blues with Louisiana Zydeco and, then mix Mexican or Caribbean rhythms with his own wry originals.
PURPOSE Director Alan Ari Lazar assembled an impressive cast (John Light, Megan Dodds, Peter Coyote, Hal Holbrook, Paul Reiser, Mia Farrow) for this 2002 drama centered around the dotcom boom.
