FRIDAY 22 MAY – James and Bobo

James and Ryde local Bobo have been performing together for over six years now, each with their own unique style that complements the other wonderfully. James' guitar playing is full of colour and rhythmic drive, with his smooth tenor vocals and a musical style reminiscent of Sting, while Bobo's rich and thoughtful harmonies weave subtle depth into each song. Their extensive repertoire and musical artistry brings life to the party every time.
