Bob and I finally came back to Montana last Thursday. Musically it was a GERAT trip! But our beloved 2000 Subaru Outback blew up on a freeway in LA. Luckily no one hurt and our friends helped us so we could borrow a car to be able to drive around in LA, drive to Oregon for more gigs, then drive back to Montana. We sincerely appreciate our great friends’ kindness.
If you would like to help our car situation a little, please consider to donate here. Thank you!!!
Josh Nelson / Bob Bowman Collective received really nice review recently. “Every so often, it’s really nice to receive a very unexpected title; one that, upon peeling away the outer packaging, causes you to say, “Whoa!” — in a good way.That’s what I felt upon scoring a review copy of “Tomorrow Is Not Promised” (Steelbird), the just-released recording from the Josh Nelson-Bob Bowman Collective.” by Jon W.
