Sonny Jr. (Gary Onofrio) as a harp player
« on: February 21, 2015, 06:09:46 AM »
A while back we were talking about how good Jerry McCain sounds on Steady.  Here's another that hits me right: the demos this guy Sonny Jr. does of his boutique amps.  I know his health is very bad and he is not working, but man, wish he had done some recordings.  He starts playing at 0:54 on the clip below:

Harp starts at 0:44 on this one:

There are some demos of others playing his amps on youtube including a very good pro, Ron Shellist, but none of them make this amp sing like the maker himself.
