about

“I’m half way up to heaven, darlin’
I hear the devil knocking my front door…”

Presenting the début single ‘Ain’t Gonna Dig My Own Grave (No More)’ taken from ’The Rattlin Bone Theatre Show’

Wily Bo & Li’l Neill have been in the studio laying down the music for ‘The Rattlin Bone Theatre Show’ and the original soundtrack album which will be released on CD and download prior to opening the doors of the stage show to the public in 2018

Swamp blues, voodoo jazz, circus burlesque, mixed with more than a smattering of N’awlins swagger and gypsy singalong tales of drunkenness and cruelty…

“Expect an evening of the unexpected!”

Building upon the stories in the songs from the album and, much like their ‘live’ tours and festival appearances, ‘The Rattlin Bone Theatre Show’ will feature ‘alternative’ sideshow acts, fire-eaters, burlesque dancers and a whole lot more!

“A veritable feast of strange!”

Li’l Neill will again lead the ‘Bone Army from the depths of the swamp and, of course,
Wily Bo will be bringing his top hat, silver cane and alter-ego’s swagger as the Ringmaster of the madcap swamp blues burlesque voodoo circus:
