Legendary rock vocalist Graham Bonnet is back with a new band and an exciting new album titled 'The Book'. The 'Graham Bonnet Band', features of course Graham Bonnet on vocals, Beth-Ami Heavenstone on bass, Joey Tafolla on guitar, ex-Alcatrazz man Jimmy Waldo on keys and Mark Benquechea on Drums. They promise a powerful set-list showcasing Graham's extraordinary career performing the songs the way you know them.
Born in Skegness, England (December 1947), Bonnet enjoyed his first chart success with The Marbles, his first single with them – ‘Only One Woman’, penned by the Bee Gees – becoming a top 5 UK hit in 1968. Bonnet’s career has seen him work with some of the best musicians in the business, including guitar virtuosos Ritchie Blackmore, Michael Schenker, Yngwie Malmsteen, Steve Vai and Chris Impellitteri, drummers Cozy Powell and Ted McKenna, bassists Roger Glover and Chris Glen and keyboard player Don Airey. He is well known as the voice on a number of classic heavy rock albums including Rainbow’s ‘Down to Earth’ (1979), Michael Schenker Group’s ‘Assault Attack’ (1982), Alcatrazz’s ‘No Parole for Rock n Roll’ (1983) and ‘Disturbing the Peace’ (1985).
Rainbow’s ‘Down to Earth’ spawned two hit singles, a cover of Russ Ballard’s ‘Since You’ve Been Gone’ and ‘All Night Long’. During his time with Rainbow, Bonnet also headlined the inaugural Monsters of Rock Festival at Castle Donington in the UK. The debut Graham Bonnet Band album 'The Book' sees Graham returning in fine form, with an album that is his best in decades. 11 new tracks that will blow heavy rock fans away!
