Ex-Rainbow Graham Bonnet will play at the Limelight this November

Graham Bonnet Band will play at the Limelight 2 on Saturday 19th November 2016.

The Graham Bonnet Band, the new band formed by ex-Rainbow / Alcatrazz / MSG / Impellitteri vocalist Graham Bonnet have finalized their touring and recording line-up, comprising of Graham Bonnet on Vocals, Conrad Pesinato on Guitar, Beth-Ami Heavenstone – Bass and Mark Zonder, Drums.

The first release from the band will be a 2 song E.P. titled “My Kingdom Come” , The title track being written by none other than Russ Ballard, who has had a long association with Graham dating back to Rainbow’s “Down To Earth” (Since You’ve Been Gone) and Graham’s own “Line-Up” solo outing from 1981 (S.O.S, Liar).

Graham says: “It’s really great to have Russ contribute a song on our first release as a new band. I have a great history with him, having recorded several of his songs for bands and projects i have been involved in over the years.”

Additionally track features renowned progressive rock/metal drummer Mark Zonder (Warlord/ex- Fates Warning) performing all drum duties. The other track on offer, a full original band composition titled “The Mirror Lies”, is a powerful song that will certainly please fans of Graham’s celebrated career in hard rock.

The E.P. (mixed and mastered by Alessandro Del Vecchio) will be released in time for the Japanese tour the band are undertaking this coming June with Michael Schenker’s ‘Temple of Rock’. Bookings are coming in for Graham’s new band which will see the group touring extensively over the next year in the UK, Australia, New Zealand,Europe and the USA .
