I knew The Bhoys when they first started c. 1998. That was when I had first started going to the Games in gusto. The Bhoys defined the games to me. I think it was 1999 or 2000. Sunday evening AFTER the games officially closed. They started playing on the then open stage in the Parking Lot. Just a straight JAM for the hell of it — for the diehards that were there. They were MAGIC. Those were the games.

I am delighted that they are back and yes, I will go the Games, just because they are playing.

I, however, had NOT been following them over the years. So all of this that I read on Wikipedia a few minutes ago was news to me. I am kind of sad. Of course I am glad that Graham Wright is OK. I am a HUGE Fan of Shelley Downing. She used to play with my perennial favorites: The Brigadoons. I was also a fan of Miranda Mulholland. They are gone. But, I remain optimistic.

From 2013. They still sound DAMN GOOD. This is THEIR beat! I remember it well. The kids will love them. Click for YouTube. Turn on the volume and have a RAVE. It will do you a world of good.

…..
Rejoice. These are THE Bhoys. They will revitalize the tired ol’ Games at Loon.
