2-DVD Set, An Acoustic Evening At The Vienna Opera House

Joe Bonamassa: An Acoustic Evening, 2-DVD Set

On July 3, 2012, Bonamassa brought a very special and exclusive presentation to the Vienna Opera House which was taped. The Vienna Opera House is a sublime cultural iconic venue steeped in history and heritage, which is the perfect backdrop for such a dramatic and original music presentation.

Supporting Joe on his vintage acoustic instruments is an eclectic assortment of craftsmen of disparate World flavors, provided by top artists from around the globe. The musicians that will help shape this musical experience include: Gerry O'Connor, a music historian and traditional Irish fiddler from many generations of Irish music. He has recorded dozens of albums and is recognized as the leading exponent of his craft. He will also play mandolin and Irish banjo. Swedish multi-instrumentalist Mats Wester will add to this cultural melting-pot of music with his main instrument, the Nyckelharpa, a Swedish keyed-fiddle which will inject a traditional and unique "world" feel into a set of original and iconic songs. Los Angeles keyboard maestro Arlan Schierbaum, whose extensive recording career focuses on organic instruments, will add all manner of musical textures with accordions, celeste, toy pianos, and more. Rounding out this cast of extraordinary performers is legendary Puerto Rican percussionist Lenny Castro, whose works spans genres and reads like a who's who of artists, including the Rolling Stones, Sir Elton John, Eric Clapton, Boz Scaggs, Toto, Steely Dan, Christopher Cross, Stevie Wonder, David Sanborn, Avenged Sevenfold, Little Feat, Tom Petty, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and hundreds of others.
