… BOBO !!!!!
… when you hear that name: BOBO .. you go go & get yourself there !! wherever it is – it’ll be worth it.
This band gets it huge driving force from guitar player PHIL COTE, but they all rock. The band played recently at the JULEP BAR, a small crowded bar on AVE A in the East Village, for the opening party of the 14th ANNUAL NEW YORK UNDERGROUND FILM FESTIVAL.

They came with a small devoted fan entourage, numbering not more than 12, maybe 24 at most, (….”our biggest audience, ever..”), but soon had the whole place jumping up and down so hard – the ancient wooden floor started to shake so seriously – the place seemed in imminent danger of caving in – right then and there..

they were followed by the MIAMI ICE MACHINE, whose driving force seems to be derived from their lead singer and frontman, GRAHAM WATLING..
