Ralph News, baby!
Bongo Beat Records Tour 2011

May. 8th, 2011


Hi folks.
The snow has cleared. The rains have swept away the debris and once again, yours truly, Ralph Alfonso, is on tour; taking Bongo Beat Records directly to music fans - be it at record shows, book fairs, flea markets, church basement bazaars and basically anywhere we can plant our flag and and let the Bongo Beat banner fly.
We've already hit Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal, and Kingston; meeting lots of old and new friends.
Join us on our upcoming adventures.
Get Bongo Beat cds, Bongo Beat books, punk photo prints, and collector vinyl (from Ralph's collection) where applicable.
Some shows will have free cds (a cool Bongo Beat selection), so come early and say hi.
