Jimmy "Bo" Horne on Performing: "I'm Not New to This, I'm True to This"

Before he ever made the hits "Spank," and "Dance Across The Floor," Jimmy "Bo" Horne was just a kid from West Palm Beach who got signed to TK Records.

Today, his infectious dance cuts from the '70s are still hits today. And their now classic Miami sounds still pack concerts of thousands from Sao Paolo to Rome, like the Disco Fever show this June 28, at the BankUnited Center in Coral Gables.

Here's what he had to say about shows at Dillard High Shool, working with James Brown, and appearing on American Bandstand.
