A child prodigy who picked up the guitar at the tender age of four, Joe Bonamassa opened for BB King in 1989, at the age of twelve. I don’t know about you, but I was still playing with my Star Wars toys when I was that age, not touring the country wowing audiences with tasty licks pulled out of a Blues handbook.
By the age of twenty-five, Bonamassa had already recorded with legends such as Gregg Allman. His high school band, Bloodline, had a fairly impressive pedigree; joining him onstage were the offspring of Robby Krieger, Berry Oakley (Allman Brothers Band) and Miles Davis.
In 2013, his album SeeSaw with Beth Hart (who recently put on an amazing show at Akron’s Goodyear Theater) was nominated for a Grammy in the “Best Blues Album” category.
Paying tribute to the Blues legends that have preceded him, Bonamassa is sure to put on an electrifying show.
Bonamassa is bringing his prodigious set of skills to the Connor Palace on Saturday, November 25th.
