As we reported yesterday, Polo, of the acclaimed go-go band TCB, was rushed to the hospital after a show on Saturday night. Though details are still vague TCB’s official blog posted filled in some of the blanks with the following statement this morning:
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.
