Take a ride to way-back-when with a nice jam from the Boogaloo Swamis, “back in the day.”
Here’s a link to a youTubber of the original band playing at the Cambridge River Festival. 1987, I think. This one is Sugar Bee, sung by Mickey Bones. It includes Mr. Bones. The gold sharkskin suit no longer fits Joe Pete; it has since been passed on to his son Ben. Thought those days would last forever. Jivin’ Jeanne Boyer – bass, vocals; Rockin’ Ralph Tufo – accordion, vocals; Mickey Bones – drums/rubboard, vocals; Joe Pete – guitar, vocals; Captain Fiddle – fiddle, vocals.
And mark your calendar for July 25, 2018—it’ll sneak up on you!—for the Swamis doing a “town green” gig in Dedham, Mass. from 6:30–8:30 p.m.
