We have a very special show next Wednesday 6th February in the Cellar Bar at South Hill Park, Bracknell with superb guitarist and singer Marcus Bonfanti.
Marcus is best known for his high energy live shows with his 3 piece band but he will be traveling the UK solo in February 2013 with a set of intimate solo gigs. These shows will contain both old and new material presented in a way his audience will never have seen him, featuring new material and a stage set to transport the audience further into Bonfanti’s world. It will be a night to remember!
