HoBoLeMa performs shows without any written music, improvising multiple live sets with breaks in between. While most of the drums are improvised and acoustic in nature, Mastelotto uses some electronic drums and audio samples. Bozzio performs on a large drum kit with several gongs. Levin plays the unconventional Chapman Stick and an NS electric upright bass, while Holdsworth improvises jazz guitar solos and droning chords over the top.
In January 2009, GuitarPlayer Magazine interviewed all four members of the group about the process of improvisation, and recorded 3 excerpts from a show in Oakland, California, and posted them online.
Allan Holdsworth - guitar
Terry Bozzio - drums/percussion
Tony Levin - Chapman Stick/electric upright bass
Pat Mastelotto - drums/percussion
