Joe Bonamassa and Rock Candy Funk Party took Conan by storm last night performing their hit single “Octopus-E”. The band appeared on Conan to celebrate their live DVD & BluRay release “Rock Candy Funk Party Takes New York Live At The Iridium”, which is due out February 25th. Take a look at the video below to see their performance!
Joe and Rock Candy Funk Party played at the Baked Potato last night. Two sold out crowds were in attendance. Also spotted in the audience was Steve Perry (Journey), Adrian Smith (Iron Maiden), and Dave Amato (REO Speedwagon).
Rock Candy Funk Party consists of Arlan Schierbaum (Keys), Ron DeJesus (guitar), Mike Merritt (Bass), Joe Bonamassa (Guitar), and Tal Bergman (Drums). Joe’s good friend Beth Hart came out for a few numbers last night. They played an eleven minute version of I’d Rather Go Blind (Etta James) with Beth Hart on vocals.. just killer!
They also played Crossroads, which is a great song. Last time we heard Joe do this song was when he had Eric Johnson join him on stage in Texas late 2011. Beth Hart also came up during the first set to sing For My Friend. Were you there last night? Comment on this post and share you experience.. I will post more YouTube videos as they come up. Many thanks to Rick Beck for recording last night. Until next time…
Joe Bonamassa will be returning to the legendary Baked Potato in Studio City for his third appearance with Rock Candy Funk Party. Joe, Tal, and the band will be blowing the roof off on January 17th. Two shows are scheduled for the date, with the first show being 09:30 and the second being 11:30. Tickets are only $26, available directly from the venue’s website. Tickets are very limited and sell out quickly. Not a show you want to miss, you’ll get to see Joe and Tal play tunes they wouldn’t be playing on a normal night. See the video below from the last time Rock Candy Funk Party played at the Baked Potato.
Joe will be playing the Baked Potato with Rock Candy Funk Party on August 18th. Joe last played with them in April. Tickets did sell out in advance last time. Not many tickets available as this is a small club. Get your tickets while you can! You’ll see Joe do various types of music that he does not play on a normal day. A true once in a lifetime experience.
