Rock-a-Billy for Lost & Lurid Souls

 Bobo & the Blue and Lonesome Two is a wild rockabilly-inspired combo from the loud and lurid land of Brooklyn, New York. Featuring Brian "Bobo" Hack (Rhythm Bound! Screamin' Rebel Angels, Max Jukes & the mp3) on vocals and guitar, Bruce Flett (A Train, The Bluebirds) on bass, and Bobby Moller (The Spastiks, The Bloodshots) on drums, this little trio of musical miscreants tear it up with unbridled fury.  Come see us LIVE!

Inspirations

Bobo has been writing songs for over twenty years, from down-and-dirty rockers to baleful ballads of longing and loss.  Bobo & the Blue and Lonesome Two also show their reverence of 1940s-1960s artists through carefully-culled covers given the Blue and Lonesome treatment.
