Known for his deep powerful vocal style and ability to combine many different guitar styles to create his own, Bonfanti’s solo acoustic show consists of music by all the great artists that have influenced his unique solo sound.
Tonight he presents a special intimate show especially for the Green Note Basement with Jihad Darwish joining him on Upright Bass.
The London-born Blues guitarist was born and raised in a tiny flat to an English mother and an Italian father. Despite picking up the guitar for the first time at the age of 16 and being a self-taught guitarist he has already packed in plenty having worked as a sideman for artists such as PP Arnold, Joe Lewis Walker, The Selecter, Jimmy Carl Black, Hamish Stewart, Paddy Milner, Earl Thomas, and Findlay Brown. Bonfanti is fast building a reputation as one of the most exciting acts on the UK live circuit with a fierce show either solo (his 3 piece band features Scott Wiber (Bass) and Alex Reeves (Drums)) or with band (he also plays in the highly acclaimed rock band Saint Jude).
