Welcome to day 21 of a 30-day tribute to the history of Duluth's favorite
sons, Bone Appetit. Use the Calendar at right to view days you missed.

April 21 -   The Bone Appetit Fashion Awards

If you were to ask an average Bone Appetit fan how to describe Duluth's Sexiest Band, invariably they would mention the band's stage fashions.

Since the earliest days of Bone Appetit, part of the performance came from the flamboyant and sometimes outrageous outfits worn for the sake of rocking the eyes, not just the ears. Whereas many bands simply play in semi-ironic t-shirts expecting crowds to appreciate their style, Bone Appetit assaulted the audience visually using leather, tight pants, bandanas, and cowboy hats; culminating with a display of flesh usually reserved for venues that require you to sit on your hands when you watch the entertainers.

So it seems appropriate now that we honor here some of the high-lights and low-lights of Bone Appetit's attire over the years.
