This rather unusual role for Bobo - known for his caustic humour and laid back style - may have been cause for some doubts on the other side of the Livornese border, but judging by the audiences' (and the musicians') reaction during the two performances (in San Marcello Pistoiese and Poggio a Caiano), Bobo more than proved his talent as an all-round, and very funny entertainer.
