THIS VERY RARE GEM FEATURES
THE ENTIRE 1996 VINTAGE JOE
BONAMASSA SET (aprox.1.5hrs long)
As far as the video’s CLARITY goes
The video’s quaility greatly improves
around the 25 minute mark. It stabilizes
and gets much, much better!
ALL DETAILS ON THE EVENT ARE AS FOLLOWS:
This video was taken at “The Music Man Lounge”
in Marcy, NY on November 10th, 1996.
Joe was performing with Midnite Mike and the
Big Notes and the event was a fund raiser for the
American Cancer Society.
This video was recently found in attic storage
(presumed lost forever) after many,
many years so the quality is not the greatest
but nonetheless the footage is priceless and
gets better 25 mins in.
It features the entire 1.5 hour set
(UNCUT) that the band played that
night featuring many spectacular
shreddin’ guitar solos by a young
Smokin’ Joe Bonamassa.
I am the former owner of this
club that is no longer in operation and
in my many years of the Nightclub
business this 1.5 hours of pure blues
magic is on the top of my list of all time
favorite moments of my career.
Please feel free to enjoy, share, comment and pass this performance on for generations to come.
Now that Joe Bonamassa is world famous and
considered one of the best players in the
world I believe that people will appreciate
the chance to see Joe performing in his early
years prior to him being the legend he truly has
