Bodie
Recouping from a sore knee and back. Overdid it in the last two weeks and now paying for it.
The "Corrido Project" for Boise State University is complete. We had the CD and book release on Oct 24, 2014 in Nampa, Idaho at the Hispanic Center. We were set to call an end to the concerts that we have put on in the last four years, but it looks like there is a call to keep them going.
The first printing of the books and CDs is finished and the books are all spoken for so we will go to the second printing. The books are $15.00 plus S&H. We are trying to get it to schools and libraries in the state and what ever other educators would like to use them in the class room. It contains a lot of history on the Latin influence of the last 150 years in Idaho. Email me at bdominguez2001@yahoo.com if you would like more information on this project.
Retired from the company after 38.94 years and I can't complain. I am now semi retired and concentrating on my fishing, boats, music, concerts, club dates, and the organizations that I belong to. I am also committed to helping the community and doing what I can for those in need.
A big thank you to Christian Cowboy Balladeers, Palouse Country Cowboy Poets Association, and the Western Music Association, they help me to help others. Thank you and God Bless
Why this name?
My full name is Bonifacio Dominguez Jr.. This is too hard for some people to pronounce so "Bodie" is a name that someone came up with while I was in Vietnam. It seems to be a name everyone can handle.
Do you play live?
I love all the venues that I play(honky tonks, clubs, BBQs parties). I now help host two radio shows on KRLC 1350AM Lewiston, Idaho, in the last few years I was asked to join the The Western Music Association. I love the Cowboy Gatherings and the Award shows. I am currently president of the Northwest Chapter of the WMA. I am also involved with the Polouse Cowboy poets and I am VP of that orgenization. I am also president of the Christian Cowboy Balladeers.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
I believe if you look back on how they fought radio when it was first introduced and how they fough to keep the music from being played FREE on the air, there is some of the same mind set.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Yes it would be beneficial to have the resources and know how to be able to expand on my music.
Band History:
I have a 40+ years of playing in just about every venue that you can imagine.

I am now involved in promoting Cowboy Gatherings and Festivals drop me a line if you or your community is interested in having a cowboy gathering.
Your influences?
I was 14 when I got my first guitar. Bob Dylan was an early study so was Berl Ives, Johnny Cash, Marty Robbins, Luther Perkins, Chet Atkins, George Jones, Don Gibson, Ernest Tubb. I love rock-a-billy guitar & Chuck Berry riffs playing as well as some of the classical runs.My first love was and still is country & western music.
Favorite spot?
I was just invited by USMC to help honor the war heroes of WWII at Kwajalein in the Marshall Islands in November of 2003. This is a tropical paradise, I loved it. On the way back we spent a week in Honolulu and I fell in love with the people and that place also.
Equipment used:
I perform acoustically when I am able. I love the raw sound with no other musicians or sound to distract from the artists own presentation. I also love the electronica of playing full out in a honky tonk with my toys to a dance crowd. I use harmonizers, minidisks, I play my parts live (vocals,guitar, harmonica). I also perform with a five piece band when the money is there.
Anything else...?
