Here is Ricky ripping it up at a show in Sf.

We met when he and his friend Victor came by to have me take a look at an old set of gon bops bongo. They were in bad shape, but i was willing to give it a go... but when we discovered a missing piece to the macho, the set was read its last rights, unfortunately.

A simlar set went for sale on ebay at less than 250 the other day, so they wont be worth the cash to send it out to Matt Smith, who is the only one i know who can bring it back to life... sad story... yet another vintage mahogany gon bops set to disintegrate into history.

Lets morn the set in the classic island way... with some dancing at Rickys show August 8th! see you there.
