It’s been an incredibly successful 18 months for this award-winning musician.
June 2013 saw the release of his third studio album Shake The Walls to much critical acclaim, earning Marcus many more fans throughout the music press and radio around the world.
He also added another British Blues Award to his growing collection winning the Best Acoustic Performer for the second year running as well as nominations in three other categories.
His growing reputation as one of the top performers in the UK and Europe lead to him being asked to front the legendary British Rock & Roll band Ten Years After which he has done since early 2014 and is currently touring and recording new material with them.
Last year also saw Bonfanti guest with Ginger Baker, Van Morrison and PP Arnold as well as putting another hundred or so solo shows under his belt from America to Russia and everywhere in between.
He is also into his fourth year of fronting the Ronnie Scott’s Blues Explosion who hold a monthly residency at the prestigious London venue and have had special guests such as Jack Bruce, Eric Burdon, Joe Louis Walker, John Nemeth and countless others join them.
After the success of his first UK solo tour in 2013, January sees Marcus Bonfanti kick off another busy year with a 22 date tour of the UK. There is also a brand new EP to accompany the tour that was recorded live at London’s world renowned Abbey Road Studios on a single day off from Bonfanti’s rigorous touring schedule.
The EP will be available exclusively at the shows on this tour and contains brand new material showcasing his talents as The UK’s Best Acoustic Performer.
Bonfanti seamlessly flows from moments of extreme intimacy to high energy foot stomping rock & roll regaling the audience with humorous tales of his life on the road in between.
