BONGO BOY RECORDS 9th INDIE MUSIC EVENT RECAP On Saturday, April 9th, Vivian Pacheco and Timm Mulhern from Cowbell Superstar attended the Bongo Boy Records band Showcase at Roxy & Dukes in Dunellen, NJ. First of all, it took forever finding a parking spot in the large parking lot, which tells you right away that something big is going on. As we walked up to the door we were greeted with open arms and a big smile by Monique Grimme (CEO of Bongo Boy)! She immediately escorted us to the red carpet where we had pictures taken. Then into the main room where a really good punk band The Accelerators, was in full flight, playing to an enthusiastic crowd. Immediately after they were done, Monique enters the stage. With her platinum blonde hair and radiating like the master of ceremonies should, she presented the award for the best Bongo Boy punk song of 2018! Conveniently, The Accelerators, who still was on stage, was the recipient. Smiles were everywhere! There was excitement in the air! It was a very fun and well organized event. Roxy and Dukes was the perfect place for it. Congratulations Monique and Bongo Boy Records!! You ROCK Monique!!! Timm (Cowbell Superstar)
