Bob rocks Rock House with Bend




Bend Studio hosted Bob Schneider at Rock House last night and rocked the house and took names, okay not names but requests. Why is AssKnockin' always the #1 requested song? Doesn't anyone want to hear (my faves) Ooey Gooey Chocolate or the one about Jimmy the Trucker?

The topic of the evening was something (can't remember what) feeling like a cock up his ass. Not that he know what a cock up his ass would feel like." His guitar was being unfriendly to the Rock House sound system. He was able to abide in Rocky's extensive guitar collection.

Have you only ever seen Bob and the band at Granada or any other large venue, I suggest a night at Bend Studio. Rarely are there more than 80 people in the space. Bob has an opportunity to speak softly, engage the audience more intimately, and work on music in a way you'll never see at another venue. Not to mention Bend Studio's sound system kicks musical ass and often the shows are recorded for sale.

I can't believe I missed this show. I agree, they've got a vibe you just don't get anywhere else. I'm hoping to make it to the Bob&Mitch show... one of my all-time favorite pairings.

Yeah - where did you go anyway?

I'll see you at the Bob & Mitch show. They are great together!

I love me some Bob! Mitch used to live next door here in Austin. He smokes. (The guitar, silly!)
