I met Billy Bones around 2010 at Boombox. I walked in intending to go upstairs to see some friends from Detroit perform, but got stuck listening to this collective of cats playing some of the funkiest modern funk I’d heard. We connected and the next few times the boys came to town, they’d stay with me. Our friendship grew over the years as they came to LA and I came to SF. It was a long time coming for Billy to come down and funk with us. In that short few hours, we wrote 3-4 great tunes. Billy is forever family.
