Bo gained national fame through his participation in the Dutch TV show Idols in 2003/2004. During the show, it was quite evident how deeply his love for soul & funk is.
To date, he has released five studio albums in both the Netherlands and abroad. When listening to those albums, it is quite clear what time and music style Bo is inspired by.
Of course, Prince was one of the stars of those times. When the idea was born to organize a series of concerts to pay tribute to the music of Prince, Bo Saris was the first name to come to mind.
When asked, Bo was very enthusiastic, but reacted with appropriate modesty to the idea of performing a Prince Tribute, since Prince is such a huge icon. He promised to put up a show that would celebrate and pay tribute to the life and music of Prince Roger Nelson.
