"BOWA" is one of those songs that has been around since the beginning, yet hasn't changed much throughout the years. In the early years, it was often played as a Dave solo feature early on in the setlist. As the years passed, its role remained strong as a great song to play early in the setlist to set the dmb mood for a show. It also briefly served as a great 1-2 combo after the old Two Steps of 94-95. In 2000
, the song served as a feature for the Lovely Ladies, who added their voices to the spirit of the song. Surprisingly, the Spring 2002 tour was the first tour in which BOWA was a missing song
. It has become a relative rarity since 2000, but it still has yet to go an entire year without being played at least once.
