Summer Parties 

Planning a Summer party or barbecue?
Have me play at it! I can come as a soloist, or duo with Amanda, or possibly a trio/ quartet with Steve Johnson and Matt Walshe (if they are available).

Hey there everybody... 

This past summer was a great deal of fun! I played regularly at the Blount Clam Shacks in Warren and Riverside, continued playing my Monday's and some Fridays at Pineapples on the Bay in Newport RI. I started a new gig at Roger Williams Park Carousel Village through Eric Weiner of FoodTrucksIn.  Also I had time to get in a whole bunch of sailing with friends, and of course swam across the Narragansett bay to raise money for Save The Bay 

I look forward to seeing you at some of my fall and winter performances. 

Loooooong Winter! 

I love New England! I love all of the seasons and you won't catch me complaining about winter being what it is any more than I'd complain about how much I love summer on this beautiful Island. That being said, I am very much looking forward to Saint Patrick's day and beyond! Been listening to WMVY a lot and Ive added about 20 new tunes into my already huge repertoire and Im looking forward to another fine summer season at Pineapples on the Bay in Newport, The Blount Clam Shack in Warren, and now the Clam Shack in Crescent Park too!
Just had dinner at the new Brix Restaurant in Middletown RI. and absolutely loved the food and the vibe. Check it out, you won't be disappointed! 

Almost time for the greening!  

Happy for the new musical stuff going on here! Bob has started a new duo with Amanda Howland on trumpet and voice. The duo plays some of the expected typical Bob fare but with Amanda on trumpet and voice the repertoire has taken a new twist to add covers of songs like "Jackson", and "Little Talks". there are also renditions of  "Royals" and some Jazz out of the Real Book.

In addition to this Steve Johnson (bass) is back and joined by Alex Chapman (drums) for a performance on Parade Day- who knows where that could lead??

Bring on the colder weather and the parties that go with it! 

With Autumn in full swing its a good time to plan yourt winter parties. If live entertainment is what you desire, dont hesitate to call or email Bob. Whether youre  planning a small gathering of family and friends by the fireplace or a huge bash with guests in the hundreds, Bob can accomodate your needs. As many of you already know during the Winter months Bob's bar performance schedule is lightened in order to focus on choral conducting and music study. However you can still catch him from time to time in Newport or the Greater Hartford area.
