Kal David and Lauri Bono
Rhinestones Revisited with Almost Ancient
The Fabulous Rhinestones were an R&B-based band formed in 1971 by ex-Illinois Speed Press guitarist/singer Kal David and ex-Electric Flag (and Bob Dylan, Al Kooper, and Miles Davis) bassist Harvey Brooks. They moved to Woodstock, NY, where they played with some of their own fellow Chicago bluesmen, including Paul Butterfield, and were signed by producer Michael Lang -- the co-producer of the Woodstock festival -- to his own Just Sunshine label. The group cut three LPs over the next three years, all of which received critical raves without selling in huge numbers -- they also got considerable exposure playing on the same bill with the Allman Brothers, Stevie Wonder, and the Doobie Brothers, but their most visible gig was probably playing a 1971 antiwar rally in New York with John Lennon and Yoko Ono. They split up in the mid-'70s and David later played with Etta James, Al Kooper, and Johnny Rivers.
Kal David and Lauri Bono:
To say that Kal David is just a great Blues guitarist would be a shame, although he is that, indeed. Other Blues guitarists don’t come close to his wide range of styles, the colors on his palette. Kal David is a fine and experienced guitarist who can bring you to your knees with his soulfulness, but don’t miss his depth. Kal David is a singer. A true vocalist, a professional with way above vocal chops. His gritty, yet polished vocals take you on an emotion filled ride. The world is about to wake up to a true living legend of music.
Miss Lauri Bono, music partner of Kal David for many years, is a fully featured member of the band. She is an amazing and dynamic female vocalist. With Lauri, less is always more. Miss Bono sings in a way that she can sound like soft velvet or turn on the gravel and guts and then pull you right back into another soft passage. It a gift that she has chosen to share with Kal David as they travel the globe makingrecords, playing concerts and major VIP events. There is something so special about the chemistry between these two artists. Although each can stand alone, they are a team. They work synergistically for the greater good of the performance or the complete record. There is no comparing who is better than the other, they exist because of and for each other......Perfect Harmony!!
