Bill Bonney played Fender bass for The Fentones, an instrumental band from Norwich, England.
Tracks like "The Mexican" and "The Breeze and I" have become icons in the instrumental hall of fame.
Pete "Buzz" Miller a.k.a Big Boy Pete formed a band grown out the skiffle phenomenon called The Offbeats .
In 1961 he joined another Norwich band called The Jaywalkers releasing a slew of instrumental records at
Decca records with hits like "Can Can 62" and "Totem Pole".
Four decades later, in 2004, both met online and decided to form a band.
Bonney & Buzz have have delivered three albums for Double Crown filled with exquisite rock n' roll instrumentals ..
Two UK guitar legends from the 60's are together for the first time on this fabulous new CD. Rock-Ola features Bill Bonney of The Fentones ("The Mexican" and "The Breeze & I") and Pete "Buzz" Miller ("Can Can 62" and "Totem Pole"). Buzz was also half of the Shig & Buzz project that released the CD Double Diamonds on Shag's Mai Tai Records label in the mid-90's. Rock-Ola contains twelve more "diamonds", with a smooth, deep Euro-instro sound not too removed from The Shadows, but dense with mystery and intrigue.
