While his father, a Merchant Marine, was out to sea, Bob would pick up his dad’s six string. Watching his dad, Bob taught himself not only to play but to transpose a right handed guitar to play it left handed and upside down!
In the early 70’s, Bob returned from the Army and through his sister, met Tony. Hearing Bob sing, Tony invited him down to a band practice to audition as a singer. Eventually, Bob and Tony would play with many other local musicians and form Circus.
Circus had trouble finding a bass player so Bob learned base, on a right handed base guitar. Bass suited Bob so he eventually “ordered” a left handed base.
Deepwater was the next phase, with Tony and Doug and would play prominently in the area, winning Battle of the Bands, recording a 45 which had airtime on local radio station WAMS.
After Deepwater, Bob, Tony, Kenny, Mark, and Tammy played together in TEEZE. After TEEZE, Bob took a little break from playing out and set up a home recording studio to do his own thing!
Retiring in 2017, Bob, Tony and Doug joined the Committed, and now SEE ALICE.
