Guitarist Joe Bonamassa has added yet another side project to his already busy life. In addition to his amazingly successful solo career, Joe is the lead guitarist and part time vocalist for Black Country Communion, has done an album with vocalist Beth Hart and now, he has a funk band titled Rock Candy Funk Party.
The album, a slight nod to the Miles Davis album, We Want Miles, is a lesson in purity. These guys are not reinventing the funk wagon at all, quite the opposite. They are paying homage to a genre that has been all but forgotten in the American musical consciousness. They do it with mostly original music, one track, “Root Down (and Get It)” is a remake, the rest are original. Granted, funky rock candy party music is not for everyone. Still, this is good stuff for when you’re in that certain mood…you know when you need to get your groove on and you want to get funky. When that mood hits then this one will do the trick time and time again.
