Rock and blues guitar superstar Joe Bonamassa is in town playing at the Brighton Centre tonight playing with his amazing band. Joe’s drummer Tal Bergman is widely regarded as one of the best in the business known for his sense of “groove” and he has been touring with Bonamassa’s band since 2011.
Tal Bergman has toured and recorded with some of the most exciting performers on the music scene, including Billy Idol, Joe Zawinul, Simple Minds, LL Cool J, Rod Stewart, Chaka Khan and Terrence Trent DArby. His musical versatility spans hard rock, funk, R&B and jazz. He is also the associate producer and drummer on the platinum and Grammy nominated album (7 million world wide) It Had To Be You…The Great American Songbook by Rod Stewart. As a drummer, Bergman has worked with Herb Alpert, Belinda Carlisle, Peter Certera, Phranc, and MC Solaar to name a few. His film credits as composer include “The Circle”(2005) Dancing at the Blue Blue Iguana (2000), Wedding Bell Blues (1996), Kill Me Later (2001) and the The Untold (2002).
Tal Bergman was very happy to endorse the BC2 drum amplification system by Porter & Davies and it was great to meet him and some of the band this afternoon. Tal was very generous with his time and was a really genuine and nice guy. Dil Davies, Jerome Marcus and I were made to feel very welcome and it is a real shame that I couldn’t take advantage of his very kind offer of a free ticket for tonight! Hopefully next time…
I was lucky enough to catch the sound check though, and was really impressed with Joe Bonamassa and the band. The rhythm section were amazing and Joe Bonamassa’s guitar playing was remarkable!
