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…

Thanks for posting. I love both Joe and Beth and love the song. She does an amazing job I think better then Etta James.
What an incredible version of “I’m a Man” this is! Superb interplay by all. Talk about musical mayhem at it’s best!
