ByeBye Peter, Welcome Wessel!

So our mate Peter still is a bastard, but no longer part of our bunch. Living on the other side of the country proved too much of a hassle. PEKEY, bro, you will be missed, but the memories of 3.5 years of songwriting, traveling, gigging and drinking the occasional pint will prevail. And as we all know: ONCE A BASTARD, ALWAYS A BASTARD!

Yet the leaving of Peter did not cause BoB any worry, as fan-from-moment-one Wessel was both willing and well-prepared to take up duties on guitar and banjo. He already knew how to play over half of our songs as he showed up for audition. At the tender age of 20, the poor lad is already marked for life, because, again: ONCE A BASTARD, ALWAYS A BASTARD!

During the Saint Patrick's Day weekend, Wessel already was up on stage with us for a dozen or so of songs. ByeBye Peter, we look forward to seeing you on the road with your new solo act. Welcome Wessel, we look forward to songwriting, traveling and gigging with you, bastard brother from another mother, and to maybe raise and sink the occasional pint.

Finny Finny Finny

BoB play a song written by and dedicated to Finny McConnell, to wish him all the best in his battle for his health.


BoB looking forward and upward

As our new singer Freddy not only survived but obviously enjoyed his first gig with us, BoB are looking forward and upward again, on the lookout for new gigs and working on new stuff.

BoB found new singer

After auditioning guys with the right attitude but the wrong voice, as well as guys with the right voice but the wrong attitude, we at BoB consider ourselves lucky to have stumbled upon this bloke FREDDY, who is bastard enough to take up singing in our bunch. Welcome Freddy. BoB will be hitting the road, the stage and the bottle again from October onwards. 

Bye bye Cor

BoB-singer Cor is gonna move to Sint Maarten in the Carribean this summer, where he will be working for the next couple of years.

It's been a blast Cor, thanks for being part of BoB during 79 gigs and loads of rehearsals as well as for writing and recording songs together. Of one thing the remaining BoB-members are sure, our slogan "once a bastard, always a bastard" will most certainly apply to you !!!

On tour with Czech buddies Pirates of the Pubs

To say it was fun touring a weekend with Pirates of the Pubs would be a gross understatement. Though never having met before, the two bands glued easily and between them had lots of fun gigging, sightseeing and drinking the occasional pint. To be continued late April with four gigs together in the Czech Republic. Hell yeah.
