Mr. Ho's Orchestrotica Dedicated to Lost Pop Music

Mr. Ho's Orchestrotica is the world's only big band dedicated to performing the lost space-age pop music of Juan Garcia Esquivel, which the Wall Street Journal calls "deliciously demented and entertaining in equal parts." Led by Mr. Ho (Brian O'Neill), a "percussion master and musical polymath" according to the Boston Phoenix, the group has rescued the king-of-space-age-bachelor-pad's arrangements via meticulous transcriptions of the original recordings. The ensemble—a big band augmented with slide guitar, four singers, B3 organ, and three percussionists—recreates the Hollywood big band, easy latin, crime jazz, and space-age bachelor pad sounds of the 50s and 60s. A 2011 Downbeat Rising Star Big Band with "incredible arrangements, musicianship, and artistic direction," the group—and it's standard formation as a vibraphone quartet—has toured in the USA and Mexico and received international acclaim for its Exotica for Modern Living series of recordings, one of which plays in over 7,000 Starbucks stores worldwide.

Highlights: Montreal Jazz Festival (main stage) , Wassermusik Festival (Berlin), Festival de Mexico (Mexico), Pace Presents Celebrate Mexico Now (NYC), Artsquest (PA)

The story behind the song:
“While a man is having a phone conversation with a women who he wants to be with, he remembers pictures from the past time where a general dies in an attempt to defense the stronghold of his beloved Queen. Scenes of fighting for unfulfilled love. The general and the queen cannot be together. Coming back in the present time with the consciousness, the man realizes that he has now a new chance to be with the “Queen” together, who in modern times is the women whom he talks with. Is he going to be with her together in a couple? The future will give an answer…..When?….. when?

David Boswell Announces Debut CD

It's been a while since I've written.  I've been locked away in my studio working with a brand new trio and we've got our debut CD being released in May. 

 The trio is called Storyboard and the new CD is entitled"Hello"

 The group is comprised of myself on electric, acoustic and synthesized guitars with Rod MacDowell on electric bass and Alex Locascio on drums.  

This is a dynamic group and we are treading into some new territory with this recording.  The title track can be heard on our website for the band at

According to their website, " Storyboard is a Contemporary Jazz trio from Los Angeles, CA playing instrumental music combining amazing sounds, rhythms and energy. Guitar synthesizers, hard-driving bass and punchy, syncopated drumming are just some of the elements that are Storyboard.

When Alex, Rod and David first played together in the studio, it was very clear that something truly amazing was happening. All three are veteran musicians, with years of stage, studio and songwriting under their belt. They have an ingrained intuitiveness when it comes to blending their talent and experience into something cohesive; Storyboard is the result. 

With their talent and love of music, Storyboard have created the soundtracks for your dreams, journeys and moods, while sharing beautiful melodies with your soul. 

Allman Brothers Hanging It Up 
After 45 Years

The Allman Brothers Band performing at the United Palace Theatre in New York City, March 13, 2010 (Photo by  Ethan Prator -  Creative Commons Attribution 2.0 Generic) reported in a  January 28 article by contributing editor Richard Tafoya that the world known Allman Brothers band is hanging it up this year after 45 years of touring.

The announcement by the band came after the band's two guitarists, Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks said they would be leaving the band at the end of this year.

According to "In an interview with Relix magazine, band leader Gregg Allman said "This is it—this is the end of it," adding, "45 years is enough and I want to do something else, anyway. Everyone has their own real good perspective bands."

Trucks and Haynes are expected to continue in the music tradition with their own solo projects.

The band will wrap up the year with shows at the Beacon Theatre and two festivals - WANEE next month and Montage Mountain in August.

Gregg Allman held out the possibility that the band might get back for some reunions every five years or so.

A listing in Wikipedia notes that, " The Allman Brothers Band is an American rock/blues band once based in Macon, Georgia. The band was formed in Jacksonville, Florida, in 1969 by brothers Duane Allman (slide guitar and lead guitar) and Gregg Allman (vocals, organ, songwriting), plus Dickey Betts (lead guitar, vocals, songwriting), Berry Oakley (bass guitar), Butch Trucks (drums), and Jai Johanny "Jaimoe" Johanson (drums). While the band has been called the principal architects of Southern rockthey also incorporate elements of blues, jazz, and country music, and their live shows have jam band-style improvisation and instrumentals."
