Update on Polo and TCB.

First we would like to thank all the people that sent thier prayers and well wishes for Polo (Reggie). It really means a lot to see people showing concern for a person that has given so much of himself to the public. Also thanks to everyone in the Go Go community that have showed support and concern for Polo and TCB. Sugar Bear, D Floyd, 32, Rappa, Big G, Big Tony, Whiteboy, GoGo Mickey, Chris (TOB), 3DB, Rick and Reaction, XIB, and many others who came to the prayer vigil or sent prayers. Polo is a true fan of GoGo before he put his mark on it.
As of today Polo is still in a coma and has been breathing with the help of a respirator. He is taken off of it for a few minutes to breathe on his own but he needs to get stronger. He hasn't gotten worse but the doctors hope that he wakes up and then they can run test to plan his recovery. The family may be moving him to Georgetown U Hospital today or Thursday for further care. So as of today we are still praying and hoping that he makes a turn for the better. The type of injury he has makes it hard to see progress on daily basis so we can't say today was this or today was that. We just go see him and talk to him hoping he reacts physically. His vital signs respond to us talking to him and Dj John put headphones on him to listen to music and we could tell he was listening. We pray that he starts to breathe on his own, then wake up from the coma. We know this takes time so we pray and wait to see him improve.
TCB will still perform and are taking donations at our shows to take care of some of his medical expences. We know there are a lot of people praying for him and we may can't thank you all but know we are grateful and thankful for your prayers. We promise to stay more in touch and will post more to the blog to keep things moving. Again...thank everyone that has sent a prayer up for Polo. Pray4Polo TCB4Life!

Prayer vigil for Polo

Today we will be attending a Prayer Vigil for our friend and brother Polo. It will be at the family's request at 800 11th Street N.E. at Douglas Memorial United Methodist Church starting at 6pm. He is currently still in critical but stable condition. Some rumors have been floating around that his condition has improved so drastically that he tried to sit up. As much as we would like for it to be the truth, it is far from it. He has been in a coma since Sunday. So we gather today to pray for God to do HIS will and wait for an answer. We appreciate all the well wishers who have expressed their concerns for our friend and we continue to ask for you to keep him in your prayers. We ask if you plan on attending the vigil, please be respectful and mindful of his family and close friends. He is a son, brother and father long before he was Polo of TCB. Just bring your prayers and support and let's express ourselves accordenly. We will continue our business of performing in his absence. I know some people want to know will we still hold commitments to some shows we have lined up. We will. This is something Polo wants us to do because he worked so hard to give TCB to the city he loves so much. If anything changes with Polo we will be sure to post it here or thru our Twitter account @BounceBeatKingz. Rumors may make it to the streets faster than we can address them but we will only post facts when they are confirmed by the family. Polo is still fighting. He gave us the name Bounce Beat KINGZ because we all are one so we are going to take care of TCB just like he expects us to. We hope you will help us and continue to hang in there with us while we take this journey. We play because he lives in our hearts and music. Hopefully, thru prayer, he will one day join us to continue his work. So with that I say Thank you! Thank you to everyone our music has ever influenced and touched. TCB4Life TCB4Polo!

Official Statement from TCB.

In the early morning hours of April 11th during our show at The CFE our friend Reggie (Polo) complained about not feeling well and it was decided that he should go home. On his way home his condition didn't improve so he was taken to Greater Southeast Hospital were he went into a coma. He was then taken to Washington Hospitol Center where he has been since Sunday morning fighting for his life. So as of today... POLO IS NOT DEAD! Out of respect for his family we are only passing on information we get from them. The situation is very serious and it's been hard just even listening to our music. The band had a meeting Sunday night and everyone was briefed on Polo's condition and they collectively decided to perform at the LePearl out of respect for Polo. In reality he has suffered a serious trauma and best case senerio it'll be a very long road to any recovery. We respect the families decisions whatever they may be and we always hope for the best. So as of right now TCB will do what Polo has done all his life...HUSTLE and GRIND. He left us with his dream to watch over it for him. He made sure we all could eat. He changed the game up as with everything he's done. So to not continue to be TCB would be disrespecting the sacrifice and hustle Polo made to see TCB what it is now. We're pulling for our friend. We don't want to talk about what if's, but for right now, Polo is still with us. Just pray for him y'all. If you down wit Polo then you down wit TCB. He is us and we are him! We are not gonna let him down by slacking up. We promise everyone that listens to our music that Polo is still with us regardless of what happens. So today we realize things have changed...... but we won't. We see things on FaceBook about Polo and we know how much he ment to the city but please chill with the RIP Polo stuff. His friends and family see it and it's nerve racking. So with that we say thank you to everyone that cared enough to listen to a band called TCB. We thank the city. We thank the fans. We thank God!...... TCB4Life!
