Bononia Sound Machine presents the new CD “Funky Dreams!”, a new original studio release featuring some very special guest musicians.
Bononia Sound Machine, an eleven piece band born in 1992 in Bologna, Italy, is known for their high-energy performances, both visually and musically. Since the very early days of the band, the aim of BSM was to create more and more soul and funky music lovers all around Italy. On stage and in the studio, the band has demonstrated its strong personality and great sense of groove, paying respect to the great masters of soul and funk of the past, but also giving the music their own influence.
FUNKY DREAMS! is the new CD from BONONIA SOUND MACHINE which features current and former Tower of Power members DAVID GARIBALDI, ROCCO PRESTIA, STEPHEN 'DOC' KUPKA, EMILIO CASTILLO and MIC GILLETTE.
The CD was produced by JEFF TAMELIER, guitarist, arranger and producer who recorded and performed with Tower of Power from 1996 until 2006. Today he is president of the production company House of Hansen and senior producer for Strokeland Records.
Most of the horn arrangements were written by GREG ADAMS, well-known artist and arranger and a major contributor to the enduring sound of Tower of Power, which has stood the test of time for over forty years.
"Since the very first day of this project, we wanted to give this CD a very special meaning. When we started this, our third CD, we knew we were working on a very special project, but we never dreamed we could have taken it this far. "FUNKY DREAMS!" is the reality that became bigger than the dream itself! Sharing the studio and songwriting with some of our favorite music masters is the true expression of a dream that came true. We sure didn't expect it, but didn't want to miss it and now we are just waiting to see what's gonna be next".
