THE GRANDE FAREWELL
After 10 albums since 1994, and over a hundred concerts since 1996, THE
BOLTONS suspended operations as a LIVE band on May 4, 2003.. Another injury to Rob's arm, combined with the great
news of upcoming marriages by all three of the girls, led the band to the conclusion that this season of adventure
is over. Thanks to all who encouraged us!
