Just when you thought Epiphone's Joe Bonamassa
could not possibly have a spare moment left to make any more new music, comes news that on January 28, Joe and pals Tal Bergman, Ron DeJesus, Mike Merritt, and Renao Neto will release a new album, We Want O Groove
. They're calling themselves Rock Candy Funk Party. The album was produced by Tal Bergman.
“Tal did a great job making sure the album didn’t become over indulgent,” said Bonamassa. “The challenge was to keep it fresh without our influences overwhelming the music—to keep the band vibe without it becoming too many ideas from too many people. It was important to commit to the moment and keep it fresh, and fun.”
With titles like "Spaztastic," "Root Down and Get It," and "We Want Groove," we expect no less.
