Performing, Richard Bona immediately catches contact with the audience. He gives 100% of his own and the band's energy. His eclectic style mixes jazz, blues, african beats, carribean rhythm and a drop of pop. The technique of playing is very important to Bona. He is a great improviser, he sings very originaly and charming. His concerts are always great experience for the real conneseurs as well as for public who listens to music from time to time.
Richard Bona uses Taurus Silver Line effect pedals - Abigar, Tux, Vechoor, Zebu and the preamp T-Di.
