Garden Party Featuring Reno Bo
Filed under: Garden Party | Posted by:


I met up with Nashville (via New York)-based musician Reno Bo last week in Tennessee for a special Southern edition of our Garden Party series. Reno, who has spent time in the Mooney Suzuki and Albert Hammond Jr,’s band, played a couple of tunes from his latest release Happenings And Other Things (out now via Electric Western), including “Baby, You’re Not Feelin’ Me Tonight”, “I See Stars” and “I Just Don’t Know Where I Stand Anymore” as well as covers of George Harrison’s “Id Have You Anytime” and Crosby, Stills and Nash’s “Helplessly Hoping.” Reno’s about to finish up a month- long residency at the 5 Spot in Nashville. If you are town, definitely head over this Tuesday, September 29th for the final night featuring Reno with his full band and other local acts. More videos are after the jump.
