If you didn't know already, but Tim Bovaconti is the current guitarist with Classic rockers Burton Cummings and Randy Bachman (as a member of Bachman-Cummings as well as lead guitarist in Burton Cummings’ band)! He is also the touring guitar player for Ron Sexsmith! The quality of music that you hear when his band plays is top-notch and you will not get bored with the songs that they play, because they are fun and unique! 
Aside from being an extremely versatile and tasteful guitarist, Tim Bovaconti (or The Bover) has also shown himself to be an excellent pop songwriter with a great ear for melody and hooks. I’m looking very much forward to the new disc. - RON SEXSMITH

I have worked with Tim Bovaconti regularly for about four years now and have always found him to be a professional of the highest degree.What impresses me most about him is his vast knowledge of music that came long before his time. I myself am somewhat of a music historian and archivist and it’s not often that I meet someone else who knows of so many of the rare and sought after tracks. Tim is a musician’s musician.He can play many different styles of music, which attests to how much listening and absorbing he has done. He also did a stellar job on my last album “Above The Ground”. His innovative solos breathed tremendous new life into many of my songs. Bovaconti is a true professional. -BURTON CUMMINGS
