No one has to tell this Blues artist to practice in order to get to Carnegie Hall. Joe Bonamassa has been practicing his whole life for this well-deserved performance at the iconic venue. And he brought some enormously talented friends with him.
Catch his performance along with the acclaimed Chinese cellist and erhuist Tina Guo, whose repertoire stretches from classical to heavy metal; and Hossam Ramzy, the Egyptian percussionist and composer, who has performed on dozens of film soundtracks and records, and was the percussionist on Jimmy Page and Robert Plant's No Quarter: Unledded Tour. Reese Wynans (piano), Anton Fig (drums) Eric Bazilian (mandolin, hurdy-gurdy, saxophone, acoustic guitar, vocals), and three backing vocalists, Mahalia Barnes, Juanita Tippins, and Gary Pinto.
As a young Blues boy, Joe Bonamassa once opened for musical icon B.B. King at the age of 12. With his musical roots to guide him, Joe has put out 12 solo albums whic have topped the Billbourds Blues charts for the last 13 years. Though he is not newcomer by any means, he has not let his fame get the best of him. Catch him live at Carnegie Hall on December 2 at 8 p.m.
