The Graham Bonnet Band are pleased to announce Joey Tafolla as their new guitarist, effective immediately Joey will be joining the band for all upcoming tour dates and the recording of a new Graham Bonnet Band album , the follow up to last years acclaimed "The Book" release.

 

Graham comments : "It's great to have Joey with us, he brings us even closer to the classic sound of my past records in the live setting and he will be a great asset as we move into the new recordings which will certainly follow the path of what we began with "The Book".

 

Joey adds : "I have always loved Graham's voice and his music. His sense of melody and harmonic awareness is just amazing. He creates sophisticated harmonies as easy as I can eat a bowl of cereal. Being able to work with someone on this level is extremely gratifying".

 

Joey Tafolla began his career as a member of the 80s power metal band Jag Panzer. After achieving cult status for the band's first full length LP, he recorded solo instrumental Cd's with legendary label Shrapnel records.
