An Acoustic Wonderland

From time to time Joe Bonamassa fans are queried about what they would like to hear next from "The New King of Blues." - Guitarist Magazine.

Joe's The Real Deal.

As a fan, I continue to grow in Joe Bonamassa's music, and often ask myself, "Why am I drawn to him (and his music) so?"
I was raised in a home where music flowed freely; a home where my father's career as a local rock and pop DJ spilled over into our daily life. As a result, I was introduced to a wide variety of music genres from blues, to hard rock, to Motown, to Top 40 and more. The list of bands and soloists met through the years (both local and national acts) is lengthy. So what is different? What is it about this one individual that makes me want to tell the world?
The answer is simple: What's not to like. Joe's the real deal!!!

There are a lot of Cult fans here on BBR and we are happy to announce their new album release,

Choice of Weapon,

on May 22nd.

To support the album, they will launch a North American Tour and tickets are already on sale.

One Joe Bonamassa: Beacon Theatre-Live From New York DVD, PLEASE!

So I go into my local record store: Bull Moose Music, on Tuesday, March 27, 2012 at about noon for several reasons:

First stop: "Free Stuff' board and bin, just inside the doorway, on the right. All promotional material is kept here.

I pinned one postcard flier advertising Joe Bonamassa's Maine debut at Merrill Auditorium, Portland, Maine, May 23, 2012, to the partially empty promo board (above a stack of flyers I'd left on a previous visit).
