Sad News in Bongodogland

I just received word that Joey Tamayo's wife Toni passed away yesterday from a very short battle with cancer - she was only diagnosed two weeks ago. The couple has a brand new baby and that makes this sad story even sadder.

The funeral is scheduled for tomorrow (Friday), 2 PM at Holy Family Catholic Church at Harrison and 24th in Brownsville.

The Bongodogs will still perform - with a stand-in singer - at Palm St. Pier tomorrow night - as far as I know. Though who could blame them if they felt they had to back out? Certainly not I...

Thanks to the Bongodogs for playing such an extended set ... after helping them load up and having a beer, I finally got home about midnight. Special thanks to Emilio who sang in place of Joey - he did a great job. Please support the Bongodogs if you like them, as they did that show for free.
