Electric Bugaboo

Why is the jazz/funk quartet The Bedbugs referred to as such? Is it because after listening to their Latin-music-soaked grooves, we’ll be wiggling our toes in a syncopated pattern even when we’re lying in bed? We’re not too sure, though we’ll be front and center when local cats Chris Benavidez (saxophone), Jason Brown (guitar), Steve Miner (bass), and Jessie Nelson (drums) blow up The Lost Leaf while playing tunes such as John Scofield’s “Chank,” Charlie Hunter’s “Dance of the Jazz Fascists,” and “Hang up Your Hang Ups” by Herbie Hancock.
