Joe Bonamassa$59 – $149
Blues-rock superstar Joe Bonamassa is one of the most celebrated performing musicians of today. As a two-time GRAMMY-nominated artist who earlier this year achieved his 20th #1 album on the Billboard Blues Chart, British Blues Explosion Live, only in his early 40s he’s already become a living legend with an astounding multi-genre catalogue of music. Collectively, Bonamassa has over 30 albums to date with studio and live recordings, collaborative albums with vocal powehouse Beth Hart, and the adventurous side projects Black Country Communion and Rock Candy Funk Party. A prolific writer who is always on the hunt to expand his eclectic musical horizons, Bonamassa has a limitless work ethic whether it’s in studio, on the road, or working with other artists to spur new music. He’s been featured in every publication from Esquire and Parade to Rolling Stone and American Songwriter, as well as on the covers of Guitar Player, Vintage Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, and Classic Rock magazine. The New York state native opened up for B.B. King when he was only 12 years old and has since played alongside such artists as Eric Clapton, Stephen Still, Derek Trucks, Warren Haynes, Steve Winwood, and Buddy Guy among others. B.B. King might not have guessed it at the time, but that 12-year-old whiz kid would go on to become an industry powerhouse. Building on their 28-year partnership, Bonamassa and his manager, Roy Weisman, created their own record label, management, marketing, and concert promotion company called J&R Adventures over a decade ago. Together, the two mavericks devised a 360-degree independent business model that has survived and thrived during one of the music industry’s most uncertain eras.
Joe is currently on tour in North America in support of his current release Live at the Sydney Opera House with his stellar band Anton Fig, Michael Rhodes, Reese Wynans, Lee Thornburg, Paulie Cerra, Jade Mcrea, Juanita Tippens
