On Wednesday 4/1 at 5PM ET, WPRB’s Rhythm of the One program pays tribute to the late Eddie Bo. Bo, a sorely under-appreciated veteran of the New Orleans R&B scene, passed away March 18th at the age of 78.
Eddie Bo was a veteran singer, songwriter, producer and pianist on the New Orleans R&B scene. Bo evolved into one of the city’s foremost funk players during the late 1960s and early 1970s, although he never had a national hit commensurate with his musical standing.
On this program, DJ Matt will feature music from Bo’s career, not to mention other obscure New Orleans funk musicians (Chuck Carbo, Wardell Quezergue and The Gaturs), and some more well-known N.O. funk bands.
