Product Description

Package includes 1 Blu Ray disc and 2 Audio CD discs
With its reboot of classic 70's / 80's jazz-funk, Rock Candy Funk Party (RCFP) delivers a sound that is as celebratory as the name suggests. The group is powered by a lineup of world renowned players who came together for the sheer fun of making music and a mutual love of genre-blurring grooves. With collective credits including Joe Zawinul, Hugh Masekela, Prince, Ruth Brown, Chaka Khan, Simples Minds, Billy Idol, Tito Puente, Bruce Springsteen, Rod Stewart, Levon Helm, Conan O Brien, Sheila E. and many more, they are: album producer Tal Bergman (drums), Joe Bonamassa (guitar), Ron DeJesus (guitar), Mike Merritt (bass) and Renato Neto (keys)

I listened to the audio of this set a few times before watching the Blu-Ray and really enjoyed it. The video provided a completely different perspective. I had no idea how much talent and artistry there was on the audio tracks. Joe Bonamassa, always a master, plays at a level I have not seen with him before. Ron DeJesus' guitar work was exquisite.

They say 'speed kills' and these guys killed it with speed. In the final song Tal Bergman's drum solo was so fast, his hands and arms are just a blur - while his head barely moves. I am not typically a fan of drum solos, but that visual was worth the price of the Blu-Ray. The keyboards and bass were also amazing. I get the whole funk dimension, but in some ways this album is reminiscent of Frank Zappa's fusion work. I am not sure I like all the songs, but the talent was so mesmerizing, I cannot look away. It is an outstanding piece of work.

I cannot say enough good stuff about this DVD/CD. I remember the Jazz/Funk/Fusion era and honestly I did not like it except for a few albums. HOWEVER, Bonamassa has made a DVD/CD that updates the style and makes it GROOVE!

Joe is playing with some well respected musicians like Ron De Jesus along on "rhythm guitar" - he's actually strong enough to carry most any band and Ron and Joe do some great guitar interplays together (just watch the dvd) Each of guys have played with all the great musicians of this genre and now Joe is bringing it forward.

This album may be even BETTER than their studio We Want to Groove - the band has been playing longer and I like their live sets better than the studio album, IMO. Plus, seeing their interplay LIVE really makes the music come alive. You have to watch the DVD.

ahhh ... one more thing this music really got my wife and I into kissing and dancing and that turned into a long and very fun time making love! You can definitely get into a groooove out of this! Try it :)

Rock Candy Funk Party features absolutely tremendous playing, great material, and the DVD/CD have really fine sound quality. Even my 2-year old daughter loves the faster grooves. It's great to see Joe B show his abilities as an ensemble player.

Just awesome music by some high caliber musicians. Sound quality and footage is 1st grade quality. These guys jammed at the Baked Potato in Hollywood. We locals are very proud if these guys. Everybody in the band holds their ground and more. Their versions of the cover songs is outstanding. I haven't taken the CDs out of my car and the DVD is still in my Blue Ray!!!!

These five guys are simply amazing. Great sound quality, crystal clear image, hot performances. But, unfortunately, my two Blu-Ray players can't read the disc as easily as they read all the other discs I have in my collection!
