Eventual Events presents:
The Bono Brothers Band & Jambon
The bond of music and family have created great bands, Allman Bros, Black Crowes, North Mississippi Allstars and Kings of Leon and all at the core the blend of Rock & Roll and Blues. Rock & Roll and Blues music are synonymous, since most will say that Rock & roll was born out of the Blues. Both genres of music are characterized by the use of guitar, a strong rhythm with an accent on the offbeat, and the rebellious form of lyrics. It is with the passion of both forms of music that The Bono Bros Band was formed.
Rob and Jim Bonaccorsi grew up in a house near Chicago where all genres of music were played. Music was a part of their lives from the beginning and what has driven their passion to be a part of the music and its soul. Some of their early influences were musicians that were talented at combining Blues, Country and Gospel into the early forms of Rock & Roll: Elvis Presley, Bill Haley and the Comets, Fats Domino, Chuck Berry, Johnny Cash, Buddy Holly and Little Richard to name a few. Also, Chicago is the “Home of the Blues” and some of Chicago blues greats were big influences including: Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon, Howlin’ Wolf and Buddy Guy, Koko Taylor, Otis Rush and Lonnie Brooks. These Blues greats were subsequently a strong inspiration to the great quintessential rock musicians of our generation the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, The Who, Eric Clapton, Allman Bros, Stevie Ray Vaughn and Ben Harper. All of these musical influences have given the passion to The Bono Bros Band’s music and live performances.
The Bono Bros Band are Rob and Jim Bonaccorsi on vocals/guitar and bass, who are also members of the Freddy Jones Band, Tom Albanese on vocals/harmonica formerly of Big G and Nick Kitsos on drums formerly of BoDeans and Poi Dog Pondering. The belief of the Bono Bros Band is that you cannot confine Blues and/or Rock & Roll in a box. Both genres of music are evolutionary and if you confine them, they cannot grow. This Rock & Roll and Blues music experience is something you do not want to miss!
Jambon is the brainchild of long time Sonia Dada keyboardist Chris “Hambone” Cameron. The group unites former members of Sonia Dada, Liquid Soul, and Weather Report.
