This summer, “Alone & Together", Bonnie Raitt and Taj Mahal two leading lights of modern blues are joining forces for their first-ever tour together.

The “BonTaj Roulet" tour a coast-to-coast, 30-date outing in August and Friday September 11th at the University of California Berkeley Greek Theater.

The show will feature Bonnie and Taj on stage alone and together.
Bonnie, backed by her always-dazzling group, and Taj, with the six-piece, Grammy-winning Phantom Blues Band, will play full sets separately, before closing each night with a collaborative, blow-out performance.

“This tour was just what the doctor ordered," says Bonnie. “Taj and I have so much in common, but there's so much unexplored territory between us. It's been a long time coming, and now is the right time."

“We've been like ships passing in the night," adds Taj. “Some of my musicians used to play with Bonnie, we have so many of the same friendsthis is really an opportunity to combine some forces and play some great music."

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
