WHO ARE THE BEAUX? ("Bo")

The band originally formed back in 1967 and played regularly throughout Northern Illinois until 1973. Though they never broke up, life (college, marriage, family, etc.) "interrupted". After a 38 year "break", some of the original members of the band re-formed in 2011 for a one night "reunion" performance. It was such a blast they decided to keep it going. Joining original member John "Monk" Montgomery (Lead Vocals and Drums) are Hans Stucki (Keyboards, Guitar and Vocals), Ron Hoyle (Bass Guitar), "Griz" Ruiz (Lead Guitar), Lindasue Saballus and Jennifer Jones (Vocals, Percussion)
