Congabluedog, Jacqui, Mongo's Gon Bops
Postby Omelenko1 ยป Tue Jun 01, 2010 7:00 pm
Jacqui (congabluedog) bought a set of 1966 Gon Bops from me that belonged to Mongo. Mongo had me sell them for him in the early 80's. My friend Julio bought them but never ever played them, they were just decorating his Florida room for over 25 years. Mongo had them in LA in his ex wife's house and she threaten she was going to dump them. Mongo shipped them to me in Miami and I sold them for him. The thing is that on the inside of the shells, the name "Armando Peraza" appears. My thought, they were Armando's congas when he played with Mongo's band. Armando played with Mongo in the late 60's up until early 70's, when he joined Santana.
Jacqui, when you have a chance, if you could post a photo of them like you did your Kings, so that we could admire them. They had the same heads from when I had them and they still sounded wicked. They are real quality Gon Bops from the glory days of Mariano Bobadilla. Very Cuban looking.

Saludos,

Dario
