Van Glynn Joins The Fabulous Bagasse Boyz

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version
The Fabulous Bagasse BoyzLouisana's The Fabulous Bagasse Boyz have announced that Van Glynn will be replacing Anthony Rushing in the band. The band says, "hile you might have thought that we’d eventually fade into the night like a bad dream, we’re back and terrorizing your nightmares again. Just like clowns, nuns and cliffs, we’re just on the edge of your consciousness and ready to dig right into your emotional psyche and keep you wide eyed and nervous at 2:00 AM. Anyway, big news on the Bagasse front. Anthony Rushing finally came to his senses after his reputation was completely ruined and threw in the towel. Between grad school, teaching full time, working part-time and being married, somehow The Boyz didn’t make the cut time-wise. Go figure. Also, there goes our chick magnet. Anyway, we’ll be featuring the amazing fiddle prowess of Van Glynn of Mandeville, LA."

The band continues, "If you’ve never heard Van bow dat’ fiddle down, you are in for a treat. Why he deigns to play music with us is beyond our comprehension (although he does insist on wearing disguises). We’ve got several shows in the pipeline for the coming months and hope that you’ll have pity on us and show up for at least one. Please don’t make us beg . . . please . . . pretty please . . ."

Once upon a time, many years ago in the early 1950's, in four very divergent parts of the country, four lovely young ladies each gave birth to a bouncing baby boy. These mothers were filled with joy and hope for the future for their young offspring. But in 2002, these mothers' hopes were dashed when the grown boyz converged together to form an alliance. There was much consternation from all corners as this axis of goobers became The Fabulous Bagasse Boyz. Hans "Fritz" Mayers on banjo and mandolin, Willi Sager on bass, Van Glynn on fiddle and Rex Hall on guitar came together with the sole purpose of humiliating the musical world with their slip-shod musicianship and annoying arrangements. This was their destiny.

The Boyz have released a couple of albums and one, Not 'Yer Daddy's Bluegrass released in 2010, had one particulary catching song on it, "Day After Day" that has something to do with getting up early, watching the chickens looking for something to do and, drinking that first cup of java.

Now, you can get up early and attend one of these fine festivals and endure what the Boyz have to offer.

The Fabulous Bagasse Boyz are back from Internet limbo after having a knock-down, drag-out fight with their mail server. Actually, they just gave up and found a new server that doesn’t know enough about them to block them yet. The band writes, "While you might have thought that we’d eventually fade into the night like a bad dream, we’re back and terrorizing your nightmares again. Just like clowns, nuns and cliffs, we’re just on the edge of your consciousness and ready to dig right into your emotional psyche and keep you wide eyed and nervous at 2:00 AM."
