Robert Bonfiglio's Review
"Has more focus because it's so airtight"
"A Great Harmonica" - Robert Bonfiglio
Called "the Paganini of the Harmonica" by The Los Angeles Times, ROBERT BONFIGLIO has dazzled audiences at Carnegie Hall, the Hollywood Bowl, the Gewandhaus, Teatro Colón, Teatro Amazonas, Kennedy Center, Boston Symphony Hall, Lincoln Center and around the globewith his ability to play classical Harmonica Concertos and to“sizzle” on the 'Blues'.
He has performed harmonica concertos as the soloist with over 200 major orchestras. He has appeared on “CBS Sunday Morning,” “CBS Morning Show,” “Live with Regis and Kathy Lee,” “Larry King,” "The Jim Bohannon Show" and Garrison Keillor’s “American Radio Show.” He has had feature stories and reviews in the New York Times, the Boston Globe, the Los Angeles Times, the Washington Post and the Chicago Tribune.
His students are a who’s who of contemporary rock and jazz players, including Donny Brooks (former harmonica player for Waylon Jennings and Billy Joel), top New York session pro Rob Papparozzi, jazz monsters Randy Hennes, Mike Turk, William Galison, and Clint Hoover, blues monster Sugar Blue (whose previous employers include The Artist and The Rolling Stones), Richard Hunter, Eric Roberts, and Bruce Willis.
