Who is Bo Bice???

OK, so back last month, I got the guest list to see Bo Bice in concert on May 19th at The Chance. I thought, if nothing else, it would be a free night out for me and my GF. We both like music and concerts — we were in the first row at the Civic Center for the Goo Goo Dolls in December, and we're going to see The Police at MSG in August — so I thought it would be a fun night.

Admittedly, I didn't know who exactly he was, other than that he was a former cast-off on "American Idol" long after I'd given up on the show. (In my prime, though, I did vote for Kelly Clarkson ... she was so cute!)

So, I wasn't sure exactly which former "AI" contestant this Bo Bice guy was.

I kinda got him confused with this guy:

This is some Constantine Maroulis. He also lost on "AI," but he's not who we're seeing.

Pray as I did — and I did, hoping against hope — I knew it wasn't this girl:

That's Carrie Underwood, who actually WON on "AI" a couple seasons ago!

So, after A LOT of research on my part, it turns out THIS is the guy we're going to see in a few weeks:

So here's where I need some help from some true "AI" fans out there ...
What songs does this guy sing?
Is he any good? I mean, the guy's on tour, and he made it to the final two on the show, so he's gotta be able to sing, right?
I need a little help here...

If nothing else, I know he's GOTTA BE better than this guy, right?

(That's William Hung, btw, for anyone who didn't know. At least I know we're NOT going to see him in Poughkeepsie!)

See you at Mountain Jam!

but he's also just a genuine musician. These are acoustic gigs so they'll be interesting and the support act is really good too, so be sure to catch him.

Ooops, it cut off part of my comment. Sorry. I started off saying that Bo is a great singer, but he's a genuine musician too ... you can learn more at bonafidebice.com
