January 21st and 22nd 2016 world-renowned platinum-selling and Grammy nominated Blues-rock singer-songwriter and guitarist Joe Bonamassa performed 2 unique all-acoustic shows at the iconic Carnegie Hall in New York City.
Both performances were filmed and made into 'Joe Bonamassa Live At Carnegie Hall An Acoustic Evening'. An evening of extraordinary music with new arrangements of favourite songs as well as brand new, never-before-heard songs. The concert was part of a special all-acoustic tour and featured an all-star ensemble of world-class musicians.
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, including on Jimmy Page and Robert Plants No Quarter: Unledded Tour. Reese Wynans (piano), Anton Fig (Drums) Eric Bazilian (mandolin, hurdy-gurdy, saxophone, acoustic guitar, vocals), and three Australian backing vocalists, Mahalia Barnes, Juanita Tippins, and Gary Pinto. Everyone knows the old saying about how to get to Carnegie Hall, but Bonamassa has truly lived that advice.
His entire life and musical career had been practice for this moment, and a young blues-boy finally made good on a childhood dream of playing one of the most hallowed stages in the world. This stripped down, all-acoustic show allowed his fans a glimpse into his soul and presented a thrilling and musically dangerous spectacle akin to walking a tightrope without a net.
