It's great to be back on with my Peeps!! I've taken a hiatus from "SOCIAL" media over the past several weeks to focus on my health after 2 hospital visits. Lower stress, better diet, more exercise, are all in the cards for me... I missed 4 shows (SORRY PEEPS WHO WERE AT THOSE FL SHOWS)  but Dr's grounded me so I could get some well needed R&R before BS&T hits the road for our Jakarta, Australia, Hawaii tour next month. I enjoyed the break from the outside distractions so much that from here on out if you want to keep up with where I am, what I'm up to with my family, friends and music, you need to stay tuned-in here to get the skinny on everything.

This newest pic is one of the backstage shots I took from Saturdays show in Seneca, NY. We had a packed house to play for but even through the masses I saw a few "BB repeat offenders" (Judy, Beth) who were with some fella who looked just like Bo Bice circa 2005(LOL). All kidding aside, it was nice to see friends in the audience who were enjoying all that my BS&T brothers and I had to offer. I love what I do for a living folks and it never gets old doing what you love!! Come join us this weekend for 2 nights of awesome music and a whole lotta fun when BS&T hit Skagit Casino And Resort in BOW, WA.

See you there!!

Bo Bice is on the west coast to celebrate the finale Season of American Idol this Thursday night from 8-10pm eastern for the 2 hr finale.

Tune in to see Bo and and the amazing line up of other American Idol Alumni as they close the curtain on an incredible 15 season run of A.I. The show that helped to created an era of TV/Talent Shows who got their start because of the A.I. Juggernauts popularity.

  Bo will be performing with some close friends and will also be hitting the red carpet to let all the fans know what's going on in his life a decade after his finale in 2005. We hope you tune in and enjoy the show!!

  "It's bitter sweet to see the show that gave me a career move into the history books. But I'll tell us what! I came second to the HIGHEST SELLING IDOL OF ALL TIMES... What does that make me??? Just a very lucky man to have shared the stage with such a superstar. Even though I knew her before she was the mega star, I'm proud of who Carrie became as an artist. Also, my friends & Alabama brothers Ruben Studdard & Taylor Hicks, Constantine, Melinda Doolittle, Caleb James... The list goes on and on!! Here is to a fun few days leading up to the #IdolFinale ... ENJOY!"

Sunday September 6, 2015 :

As the nine piece band took the stage on Sunday night at Wests you could not help but think, what did a former runner up in American Idol and a classic rock jazz combination possibly have in common? To witness Bo Bice on stage with Blood Sweat & Tears, the answer is very simple – power, presence combined with a genuine respect and love for the music equals magic.

Although now lead singer Bice was born in 1975, some eight years, multiple awards and albums after Blood Sweat & Tears was formed, you can’t help but think they were destined to collide with each other. Maybe his mum installed quality music and he absorbed it via osmosis, it’s anyone’s guess. Taking the stage in jeans, armed with a microphone and stand symbolising the rock background he is so proudly from, Bice is a true superstar, power in the voice and gigantic in stage presence. Whilst you would think he would have an ego to match, he is humble and likeable, pausing to tell various audience members he “loved them” throughout the night.

The band kicked off the night in style, launching into ‘Lucretia Mac Evil’ complete with a four piece brass section and showing the nearly full house what kind of night it was going to be. Horns, saxophones and even a flute solo followed through the next ninety minutes together with multiple stories.

Blood Sweat & Tears has been a musician’s launching platform of the past 43 years with almost 150 members claiming time with the band on their musician’s resume. The band is incredibly tight, skilled and enjoyable from every angle. You rarely get to see brass in a band let alone four of them on stage at once. Throughout the transition through songs, brass figured heavily which is no surprise if you know their catalogue of albums. In total the nine musicians work in harmony to take the audience back before social media ruled the world.

There were big expectations for Bice which he honestly handled without raising a sweat. During the night he cruised through some of the band’s best-known hits, including ‘Hi-De-Ho’, the Carole King classic which went over well. The introduction of ‘Spinning Wheel’, arguably the band’s biggest hit and ironically Bice’s segway into the band who first heard him sing the song on American Idol was well received. The band finished the night with the 1969 hit, ‘You’ve Made Me So Very Happy’, sung in a way to please the hardest critic.

Overall the band lead by Bice seemed to ooze a comfort well ahead of their years. For me the highlight was Bice and brass who handled the immense pressure of singing some of modern music’s most iconic songs. It has been nineteen years since the band last toured, and hopefully they will not leave it that long again. Thoroughly enjoyed.

Lucretia MacEvil, Almost Sorry, Hi De Ho, I Love You More Than You’ll Ever Know, Go Down Gamblin’, Mercy, God Bless the Child, And When I Die, Spinning Wheel

You’ve Made Me So Very Happy
