You may not be aware but Joe Bonamassa is one of the hardest working guitar players in the world, touring with his solo band most of the year and working with and touring with Beth Hart and on top of all that (and since Black Country Communion is no longer a band) he is playing in this awesome band called Rock Candy Funk Party which features an amazing band of musicians playing incredible funk like this!
I cannot wait to get this album, I might even splurge and get the DVD!
With its reboot of classic ’70s /‘80s jazz-funk, Rock Candy Funk Party (RCFP) delivers a sound that’s as celebratory as the name suggests. Powered by a lineup of world renowned players including album producer Tal Bergman (drums), Joe Bonamassa (guitar), Ron DeJesus (guitar), Mike Merritt (bass), Renato Neto (keys), and Daniel Sadownick (percussion), the band came together for the sheer fun of making music, and a mutual love of genre-blurring grooves.
Rock Candy Funk Party Takes New York – Live At The Iridium features eight live renditions of original tracks from We Want Groove that mash up funk, jazz, and rock with virtuoso musicianship, as well as four cover songs including Mr. Clean (Weldon Irvine), One Phone Call (Miles Davis) and two by Herbie Hancock – Heartbeat and Steppin’ In It.
