Joe Bonamassa American Fall Tour

JOE BONAMASSA ANNOUNCES 2019 AMERICAN FALL TOUR

TWO-TIME GRAMMY-NOMINATED BLUES ROCK GUITARIST TO PLAY AT THE SHOW AT AGUA CALIENTE RANCHO MIRAGE ON WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 23, 2019 AND OTHER ICONIC VENUES

TICKETS ON SALE NEXT FRIDAY, APRIL 26, AT 10 A.M.

Today, two-time GRAMMY-nominated blues-rock titan Joe Bonamassa announces tour dates for summer 2019 in support of his all-original studio album Redemption (J&R Adventures), which was released last September. New tour dates will go on sale Friday, April 26th and will be available here. These additional dates bring Joe’s already busy touring schedule to nearly 100 shows for 2019.

Backed by a stellar band of legendary musicians including Late Night with David Letterman’s Anton Fig (drums), Nashville recording legend Michael Rhodes (bass), Rock & Roll Hall of Famer and member of Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble, Reese Wynans (piano/organ), Paulie Cerra (sax), Lee Thornburg (trumpet), and featuring soulful background singers to bring a whole new life to the show which will feature brand new songs alongside career-spanning favorites.

Bonamassa is one of today’s top live performers and his enthusiastic shows are one of the biggest parts of his career, and a favorite for music lovers worldwide. Hailed internationally as one of the greatest guitar players of his generation, Bonamassa has almost single-handedly redefined the blues-rock genre and brought it into the mainstream. He’s on the road about 200 days out of the year, and when he’s not on stage, he’s fully committed to crafting the most intricate, diversified new music to share with his dedicated audiences and fans.

In 2018, Bonamassa achieved his 21st #1 album on the Billboard Blues Chart, with Redemption, his most ambitious, barrier-breaking studio album yet. With over 30 albums to his credit, including studio and live recordings, collaborative albums with blues sensation Beth Hart, and side projects Black Country Communion and Rock Candy Funk Party, the guitar sensation somehow always finds ways to reinvent his artistry.

Earlier this year, Bonamassa also became the host of a new weekly show on SiriusXM’s Bluesville. The show, Different Shades of Blue with Joe Bonamassa, explores all aspects of the blues music genre like never before and has Bonamassa curating his favorite blues songs with an eclectic mix of everything from legendary classics to historical deep cuts and modern hits, airing 6pm ET every Monday on SiriusXM channel 74.

A prolific writer who is always on the hunt to expand his eclectic musical horizons and develop new ways to interact with fans, Bonamassa has a limitless work ethic whether it’s in studio, on the road, or working with other artists to spur new music. This year on the road, audiences see Bonamassa at his ultimate creative peak as an artist, and with these new tour additions his fire is unstoppable. With a vast, unparalleled catalogue of music under his belt, this tour promises to be Bonamassa’s best.

Robert Davi × Georgós Wine

Georgós Greek Wine, an innovative wine company that uses the best of American techniques to handcraft small batch wine in Sonoma Valley from imported Greek fruit, is proud to announce a partnership with Robert Davi, the award-winning actor, screenwriter, director, producer and jazz vocalist.

Davi has appeared in more than 130 films including, THE GOONIES; JAMES BOND: LICENSE TO KILL; DIE HARD, the upcoming film REAGAN, as well as the groundbreaking TV series Paper Empire.

Currently touring in his show “Davi Sings Sinatra,” where he performs notable tunes from the legendary crooner, Davi has also just released the documentary, “DAVI’S WAY” that explores the challenges and thrills of singing Sinatra’s uniquely American masterpieces.

In addition to his ‘tough-guy’ roles, Davi is well known as a singer. He has performed at The Venetian, The Orleans and Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, headlined the Friars Club’s 90th Anniversary Tribute to Tony Bennett with Robert De Niro and Scarlett Johansson, and recently performed at the United Nations to celebrate its 70th Anniversary. Davi acted and performed in the Frank Sinatra 100th Birthday Special on PBS—most fitting since Sinatra’s work has been foundational in Davi’s own life and career.

Davi and Georgós Greek Wine formed a partnership after Davi purchased a bottle of wine at Whole Foods Market in San Francisco. The bottle happened to be Georgós’ “Santorini” wine. After Davi tasted the crisp white varietal, he fell in love instantly and called it, “one of the smoothest damn wines I’ve ever had.” He then dove into the reds and was inspired to connect with Georgós.

Robert Davi will work with the Georgós team as its brand ambassador to broaden its reach by spreading the wine’s unique story and to help create more great tasting wines. “In my family, wine was as necessary a drink as water. I helped my grandfather make his homemade wine at our family home on Long Island, and have been searching for an opportunity to once again become intimate with the process,” Davi said recently, “I’ve always been a lover of all things Greek – poetry, food, culture, and after tasting all the Georgós blends, it was ordained that I join with them! Robert Rex is a genius at blending wines—rather like a great composer creating a symphony, he blends the notes and tones in these wines creating an experience you will want to go back to time and again. These are truly ‘Greek wines redefined.’ The wines, sustainable and low in sulfites, are not only healthier but will most likely never give you a headache!”

The partnership between Davi and Georgós Greek Wine comes fresh off the heels of another collaboration between the winemaking team and personalities of note. Earlier this year, in partnership with ultra-marathon living legend and one of Time’s “Top 100 Most Influential People in the World,” Dean Karnazes, they created Marathon Wine.

Georgós Greek Wine founder Georgos Zanganas is especially thrilled to work with Davi, as he sees it as a partnership between two parties who are constantly redefining. “One of my favorite movies of all time is JAMES BOND: LICENSE TO KILL. Robert played a tough guy, and established a great reputation in that archetype,” Zanganas says, “now he has the opportunity to show another side of his personality by singing Frank Sinatra classics at some of the greatest venues across the globe. We have taken the best of the American winemaking techniques and applied them to our imported Greek fruit to change traditional Greek Wine into a super-premium experience – like visiting the Greek Isles in a glass. This partnership will help us spread Georgós and #GREEKWINEREDEFINED to the world.”

Georgós was born after founder Georgos Zanganas moved to San Francisco to work as an engineer. Zanganas is very sensitive to sulfites in wine, and he struggled to find a wine that did not give him a headache or stop the red flush of his face. He even found it difficult to come by good quality Greek wine in the area. Surprising, as the US market was saturated with all things Greek – such as yogurt or olive oil – but curiously not wine. He decided to make a wine perfect for him: clean tasting with low sulfites and no additives. Zanganas discovered Deerfield Ranch Winery in Sonoma Valley (known for their “Clean Wine”), on a trip to Sonoma, where he met winemaker Robert Rex, who was recently named 2018 Winemaker of the year by the American Fine Wine Competition. Together they embarked to make a “clean wine” with imported Greek fruit. Zanganas and Rex spent one year, tasting over 400 samples until they found the perfect recipe to create Georgós Super-Premium Greek wine, which is fruit forward with soft tannins. The rest, as they say, is history.

Zanganas added on the company’s journey, “I never thought that I would be in the wine business, but I wanted everyone to be able to drink a great quality wine without experiencing a headache. I also found the opportunity to make Greek wine in the heart of the US winemaking region an irresistible challenge. It’s like importing and making California olive oil in Kalamata, Greece – to succeed you have to believe in it with passion.”
Currently, Georgós has seven, small batch super-premium Greek wines to market, available direct from the winery online, at Whole Foods in Northern California, and at fine restaurants and hotels in San Francisco and Los Angeles:

Santorini, “Sophia’s Smile”: a 2017 Assyrtiko similar to a dry, crisp Sauvignon Blanc.
Mykonos, “Wine of Hercules”: a 2013 vintage Agiorgitiko in the Pinot Noir style.
Corfu, “Siren’s Lure”: a 2015 Bordeaux style red blend.
Ios, “Aphrodite’s Kiss”: a 2017 Dry Rosé of Agiorgitiko grapes.
Ithaka, “Penelope’s Spell”: a 2015 blend of premium Greek Cabernet Sauvignon.
Marathon, “Athena’s Vineyard”: a 2017 Assyrtiko blend similar to a dry Sauvignon Blanc.
Marathon, “Nike’s Vineyard”: a 2017 Rosé with the structure of a Pinot Noir.
Georgós Greek Super-Premium Wines are the direct result of a team pursuing excellence in flavor and the highest degrees of quality possible. They look forward to creating future partnerships and bringing their delicious and healthy wines to enthusiastic devotees across the country.
