About
I play jazz trumpet, jazz guitar and sing on 40s 50s and 60s standards. I can use backing tracks for the cost conscious, or a band for larger events. My music and presence are polished and tasteful, I can be main stage or provide musical background ambiance. If you book me, you will receive a quality, professional jazz experience.

I consider myself a crooner and a traditional musical purist. As much as possible, I recreate the look and sound of the entertainers from the 40s, 50s, and 60s. Singing alone (or with my band). There are no egos here. I listen carefully to my customers wishes for ambiance and mood and will be flexible to create just the right atmosphere for your event or party. My goal is for you to meet your expectations for a great experience.

Jazz was my first love in high school band where I was 1st trumpet and played in the dance-band. In the 70s I grew my hair long and was a front man - guitarist/vocalist in a band that played classic rock, appearing at some of the biggest rock clubs in the Philly area and also down the shore. In my older years, my musical tastes have drifted back to Mile Davis, John Coltrane, McCoy Tyner, Wes Montgomery, and Chet Baker to name a few. I cover quite a few Chet Baker songs on trumpet, which is one of my favorite musical experiences. As for singing, Sinatra is certainly a mainstay as well as many of the other greats.

Bob was very professional and kind. He was flexible with the type of event I wanted to put on. I was celebrating Louis Armstrong at the library, and Bob created a slideshow with details on his life and career. He even let one of the kids blow on his trumpet as the performance wrapped up.

Bob was wonderful. I booked him for a small casual event at my hotel to entertain my guest in the evening while they checked in. The guest loved him. His music was a blast from the past and very classy. He was early and ready to go. You could defiantly tell he was doing what he loved. Would love to have him again in the future.

Bob was a delight to have at the facility. He was interactive with the patients, sang songs they could relate to, laughed and had fun doing it. Bob even went above and beyond to sit and talk to each person once he was finished. This is not just a job for his this is his passion and it shows! My patients requested Bob come sing spooky tunes for Halloween. Thanks Bob!!!

Bob is a kind hearted soul. He was very accomodating for all of my requests. I proposed to my girlfriend at Winterthur Garden and he was there about 45 minutes after schedule since we were running late (lost, olive garden lunch taking forever) His abilities and talent are what you would expect from a professional (he was pro)My only little irk was that I wanted to propose during "our" song and plans were for him to keep a look out for my sign of a thumbs up behind my back which I had given like 7 times at two locations until I ditched the idea. He played it afterwards and was kind enough to take pics of us for our special day. The idea and moment was special, Thanks

Bob is an amazing singer! He made my event spectacular. He came on time, he made sure he played the songs of my requested playlist and he was very social with our clients for our corporate event. We have hired him since then for our other events and he is amazing. We will continue to use him and refer him to everyone. He is a very good talent and very professional I give him 10 stars if I could.
