BS&T was in Visalia, CA last Sat. to raise money for "HANDS IN THE COMMUNITY" organization that helps people in the community by offering volunteers to help with different issues that their citizens experience but may not have the access to the funds to fix the problems at hand. We had one heck of a night and the crowd was AWESOME!!!!


We always have fun onstage performing from this amazing catalog of music each night. We are truly a "BAND OF BROTHERS" and a team of players who always leave everything out on the stage every night. Now that I have the This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. email I've been getting more cool show shots than ever!!!! Kacey Lessley snapped a few shots of me on stage and I did some photoshop magic to them and turned 2 photos into 1. Thank you for sending the photos over to my email Kacey and for being a true BB/BS&T fan, we couldn't do it without you young lady. Here is an autographed copy of the photo I touched up, I appreciate you sending it over to me.



After I got back to GA and spent some down time with my family and work on some new music, I got a surprise invitation to head over to Greenville, SC from my friend Bert Hesse who heads up the entertainment production company STUDIO SOUTH in CA. Bert was kind enough to introduce me to Mrs. Vivian A. Wong and her team who gave me a tour of their incredible facility and was nice enough to take time out of their busy schedule to met with me about some interesting projects they are working on. I look forward to bringing Caroline & The Kids to Greenville for a visit with them all again once I return from Germany & Norway in a few weeks. Thank you Mrs. Wong & Bert for having me and I can't wait till we do it again!!  




I got this email from a young lady I met on a flight a while back, her and I share a common thread (MARINE CORPS) in our families and I wanted to share a very special honor her son Corporal Jeron Richard for his special duties yesterday in France. Thank you for sharing and reaching out to me on my email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Carla. SEMPER FI!!!

“Hey Bo! So our flight from Lake Charles to Houston was a good one. I enjoyed our visit. Hope the family is well and you enjoyed your time at home. The Bahamas trip was absolutely amazing. You need to go! I let you read my sons Navy Achievement papers. I gave him your message. He was beyond excited from the time I said your name until I gave him your message and then some. He was 1 of the 31 Marines chosen to march in the 100th Anniversary Bastille Day Parade in Paris France. It's tomorrow, 7/14. The United States is leading the parade for the first time in history! I so enjoyed meeting/visiting with you! My only regret was not getting a picture with you! Hope to hear from you. You did tell me to "go to and let you know how the Bahamas trip goes". Here's a pic of Jeron at the Embassy in Paris. Carla Gimnich”






The Kongsburg Jazzfest in Kongsburg, Norway and our friend Rolf Bugge who brought us over treated Blood, Sweat & Tears wonderful last week, we won't forget that when we return next month for round 2 of our Norwegian “muzik-fest”. One of the coolest things about BS&T is how open our group is to having guests share the stage with us on certain tours, shows and festivals. This trip we had a guest vocalist  Mr. Ole Børud who is a native son of Norway and he made his country proud with his renditions of his favorite BS&T songs. I always enjoy watching other performers do their thing, especially when they have the chops to back up the incredible catalog of music that BS&T has. Ole is a true talent and meeting his family was a special treat too. He will be with us when we play next  month on Aug,10th  at the Sildajazz Jazz Fest Haugesund, Norway, so come on out and join in the fun



It's been a few months since I've updated or any other form of social media for that matter.  I said I was taking a break from it all for a bit and those of you who know me are aware that when I say I'm going to do something, I follow through with it! I've had many emails sent to my This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. address by friends/fans asking me to start back up over the past 2 months and as I explained to them I took a break from (THE WEB, TV, NEWS, RADIO,ECT) to dedicate to my family, friends and 'THE REAL THING's that count in this life and I'd return once I felt the calling to do so. SO...I'M BACK!! And here is the catch-up session of what's up in my world.

While on hiatus I've still been touring with BS&T ALL OVER THE WORLD (Even did a few more Symphony's), writing new music, recording with my friend and fellow Idol Alumni Jessica Meuse, I got schooled big time by my oldest son Aidan on how to perform 'Vehicle' live, and I'm busy looking for a venue to begin the music school/store I've dreamed of having for decades. So just because I haven't been attached to my DRONE devices and plugged into the web doesn't mean I've disappeared. Part of my absence was due to the fact that I was extremely affected by the loss of one of my musical heroes Gregg Allman, I needed time to digest the the magnitude of the loss our music community has experienced with the passing of Gregg Allman. There will never be another band like The Allman Brothers but BB/BS&T will continue to dedicate our version of Midnight Rider to the group each night we perform our rendition of the song so that the music and memories of those who made us laugh, cry, scream & shout will never be extinguished.
