Tal Bergman (drums), Joe Bonamassa (guitar), Ron DeJesus (guitar) and Mike Merritt (bass) got down in Tal's studio to record 14 original tracks and 2 covers full of space, texture and virtuoso musicianship. They enlisted Grammy-winning trumpeter Randy Brecker to provide horn arrangments, and ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons to be the master of ceremonies, a.k.a. "Mr. Funkadamus".
Together, these players weave into the mix heavier dance beats, rock, and pure unadulterated funk, citing influences such as Daft Punk, the Brecker Brothers, Mark Ronson with Bruno Mars, Massive Attack, Sade, Prince, and Led Zeppelin.
Less jazz and more modern dance with layered grooves, according to guitarist Ron DeJesus. Have no fear that these guys suddenly go all techno. Rock Candy Funk Party is still a band that came together for the sheer fun(k) of playing music.
