I don't know why nobody mentions Jimmy Bowskill, the 3rd J of the Bonn show. That guy rocks too.
Check the CD Jimmy Bowskill: Black Sea Star (Reggae goes Blues), Loser, Rattle Snake Shake, Diamond Ring.
I'm not from Bonn but spent there a weekend a few weeks ago in the hotel named first.
DERAG Hotel & Living Der Kanzler, Adenauerallee 148 **** and 1/2 star

It's a bit old fashioned with paintings of our German chancellors at the walls but it's a good deal for the money.
Ask for a room at the backside which is very silent.
Underground station just in front of the hotel and near to the venue.
