<< I've heard the same thing from other folks who have played with Bo.
My question (as a drummer) is: who plays the beat? Just Bo? What
other instruments does he have in the band?
A lot of the old stuff was made cool by Jerome on the maracas...he doesn't
have someone play the maraccas live, does he?

The gig is a sleeper... How well it goes depends on how far you, as a
player,want to go with it. Bo is a character who is funky all by himself,
you just have to have a keen ear and a sense of cheap math... listen and make
sure everything you do ADDs to the mix. I have played 8 shows with Bo over
the years... they were all different, some I was given and took no solo's
some I soloed on every tune... some he talked
some he rocked!
