His band for these special evenings was Reese Wynans (piano), Anton Fig (drums) Eric Bazilian (mandolin, hurdy-gurdy, saxophone, acoustic guitar, vocals), and three Australian backing vocalists, Mahalia Barnes, Juanita Tippins and Gary Pinto where collectively they played new arrangements to some favourite songs as well as performing brand new, never-before-heard ones.

Despite being among the most ambitious things I’ve done – I played with a 9 piece acoustic band – It came out great. It was a typical Joe freak show,” commented Bonamaasa who is currently touring the UK, with tickets for those shows not already sold out available from www.jbonamassa.com/tour-dates.
