It has come to my attention recently that Keith “Sabu” Crier, the bass player for the popular disco band GQ (the guys who made it in the 70s with the song Disco Night) has unfortunately died.

He was 58-years-old at the time of his death. The reasons behind the occurrence that led to his death were not disclosed. It’s always very sad to learn that a great musician has left us so soon.

Here’s Keith “Sabu” Crier with GQ:

You might not be crazy about the whole disco era, we sure understand, but we found a 10-piece band that has played 2,500 shows in 450 cities that was founded by a bass player! That’s right! Her name is Boogie Cindy and her band, Boogie Wonder Band has been around since 1996.

It’s always awesome to hear of a successful band that is anchored by a bass player!

According to Cindy, she has about 17 years of experience. While she, as a child, dreamed of being a famous bowler, she found music instead – which we’re fine with. According to No Treble magazine, Cindy and her band played in exclusive parties for “Celine Dion, Donald Trump for Mardi Gras in New Orleans, Cirque du Soleil, and Just for Laughs last July in Montreal.”

They seem to have a kick out of their gigs as well, check out this compilation of some of their shows below:
