Bona Fide


A long time ago (1998), in a land far away (Baltimore, MD) a funky jazz band was born. Its name? Bona Fide. Why Bona Fide? Well, anything with 'Bone' in the name can't be too bad. The band got its start when Carl Griffin, a legendary record executive who discovered Diana Krall and Evelyn 'Champagne King', called Tim Camp, former Motown songwriter, and asked for some funky jazz.

Tim and Carl worked together at Motown, way back when, and now Carl needed a funky jazz band for his new record company. Tim had written a lot of funky jazz while at Motown, and played Carl some new funky jazz, and...it was funky, it was jazzy, and ...A Band Was Born. Tim enlisted a keyboard player named Joe Ercole, an incredibly talented musician and producer whose mainstay was Film, TV, and commercial work. The next recruit? Kevin Levi, AKA 'The Prophet', an equally talented sax player, whose work with the Slim Man band has been nothing short of magnificent.

Add Slim Man drummer John E Coale to the mix, and you've got quite a scintillating scenario. The first Bona Fide CD 'Royal Function' was a Big Hit. A certified Hit. A Bona Fide Hit.

In 2001, the single 'X Ray Hip' reached Number One on Smooth Jazz Radio...nationwide Band MembersSlimman- Bass/Lead Vocals John E.
