On September 10th, 2015 Richard Bona opened the doors of his new music venue Club Bonafide in New York City and kicked it off with two amazing sets with his quintet.
Club Bonafide is an intimate listening room with seating of 75 with a state-of-the-art sound and lighting system and a separate bar area, with a bar menu consisting primarily of products sourced from local businesses in the New York City area.
Bass Player's very own Chris Jisi was there for opening night, and this is what he reported:
Excellent set by Richard Bona and his quintet last night at Richard's new Club Bonafied, on East 52nd St in NYC.
Encouraged by his band and the crowd, Richard strapped on his fretless for rousing run through Jaco's "Three Views of a Secret."
