Soca Joe Band featuring Joe Bonacci
“Joe, your music sounds great and your playing is spot on” -Jeﬀ Kazee, Bon Jovi
The hot new CD from the “SOCA JOE BAND” was born from the vision of the masterful guitarist Joe
Bonacci. As Artistic Director of Soca Joe and Manhattan Swing Orchestra, he brings a musical richness
and diversity that can only come from the cultivation of a wide variety of musical experiences. Those
experiences include completing tracks with Yoko Ono on John Lennon’s unﬁnished works, live
performance with the legendary mambo king, Tito Puente, John Lewis of the Modern Jazz Quartet,
Freddie Hubbard and many more. Joe has written music for TV and
Soca jazz is a unique genre of island inspired music with reggaeton feels, funky rhythms, memorable
melodies and good time vocals. Relax and unwind to the cool sounds.
Produced by Gary Haase whose credits include George Benson, Michael Bolton and Celine Dion
to mention a few. On saxophone is David Mann who has recorded and performed with likes of Sting,
Madonna, Diana Ross, Billy Joel, Tower Of Power, Paul Simon, and Michael Jackson.
