Other Florida stops include Sarasota on Dec. 8, St. Augustine on Dec. 10 and Hard Rock Live at Hollywood on Dec. 12.

Blues-rock superstar Joe Bonamassa is one of the most celebrated performing musicians of today. As a
two-time Grammy-nominated artist who recently achieved his 24th #1 album on the Billboard Blues Chart,
with the studio album Royal Tea, Joe is only in his early 40s and he’s already become a living legend with an
astounding multi-genre catalogue of music.

Collectively, Bonamassa has over 40 albums to date with studio
and live recordings, collaborative albums with blues sensation Beth Hart, and the adventurous side projects
Black Country Communion and Rock Candy Funk Party. A prolific writer who is always on the hunt to expand
his eclectic musical horizons, Bonamassa has a limitless work ethic whether it’s in a studio, on the road, or
working with other artists to spur new music. He’s been featured in several publications from Esquire, WSJ
and Parade to Rolling Stone and American Songwriter, as well as on the covers of Guitar World, Guitar
Player, Vintage Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, and Classic Rock Magazine.

The New York state native opened up for B.B. King when he was only 12 years old and has since played
alongside such artists as Eric Clapton, Stephen Stills, John Lee Hooker, Warren Haynes, Steve Winwood,
Peter Frampton and Buddy Guy, among others. B.B. King might not have guessed it at the time, but that
12-year-old whiz kid would go on to become an industry powerhouse. Building on their 30-year partnership,
Bonamassa and his manager, Roy Weisman, created their own record label, management, marketing, and
concert promotion company called J&R Adventures almost two decades ago. Together, the two mavericks
devised a 360-degree independent business model that has survived and thrived during one of the music
industry’s most uncertain eras.
