The Bonedaddys are a diverse group of Los Angeles-based working musicians who come together from time to time under the direction of percussionist MICHAEL TEMPO in order to make party music for party people. The Bonedaddys were one of the very first American 'worldbeat' bands; established in about 1984 (I'm a little vague on that one!) and dedicated to the proposition to GROOVE and MOVE people thru a gumbo consisting of Rock, Funk, African, R&B,Soul, Soca, Reggae Rock Steady, Roots, Jazz,Blues, Highlife, New Orleans Second-Line, Gospel, Hillbilly and Zydeco. They have toured clubs and halls colleges and parks in the U.S. and Canada, made T.V. and radio appearances, and have had a performance catalouged in the Library of Congress. The Bonedaddys have recorded 4 previous albums (A-KOO-DEE-A, WORLDBEATNIKS, TO JAM IS HUMAN, TO GIG DIVINE and JUNGLE/JUNGLE...all of which are either out of print and/or are extremely hard to get. GARAGE SALE, the new album continues the BONEDADDY tradition of mixing genres- with the common denominator being a soulful and fun as well as dancable ambiance.GARAGE SALE is Produced by bandmembers PHIL GOUGH and MICHAEL TEMPLE and features stalwart lead singer KASPAR ABBO as well as original Bonedaddy frontman KING COTTON vocalizing over the twin-guitar attack of PHIL GOUGH and MARCUS WATKINS with JAY WORK on saxophones and RICK MOORS, CASEY JONES, and MIKE TEMPO on Bass, Drums and Percussion. It also features a rare and previously un-released collaboration with American icon BO DIDDLEY. 'Say Bo ( Where'd you get that Kpolongo)' chronicles Bo's reaction upon being informed that the 'BO DIDDLEY BEAT' has African roots. ANSWER: 'The Church gave it to me!' Genius. The Bonedaddys make carefully hand-crafted hot and sweet sweat-inducing music aimed at the lower chakaras and suitable for all of your party needs. Dig it.
