Gear and Endorsements

 

I'm notoriously hard on equipment so when I find something that works great and lasts ~ I stick with it. Here's a few of those things:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bearfoot FX

I'm partial to the Model G, Honey B and especially the Baby Pink Booster.  My search for overdrive and clean boost ended the day I found these. Thank you Donner for always taking such great care of me! If you like my tone - this is how I got there.

 

 

 

 

I tour with ZT Amplifiers all over Europe. I was in a pinch on tour as the amp that I had at the time (Not ZT) died and I messaged them and they sent me an amp the next day. These little amps are amazing workhorses and I have used it ever since. I play electric guitar through it, acoustic and we have even played bass through this tiny little 200 watt Lunchbox. Thanks Michael!

Follows the musical storytelling tradition of Bruce Springsteen, Steve Earle and Gram Parsons.”

Bobbo writes deeply affecting material and it is delivered with an authenticity that is exhilarating. Even on disc, his blend of roots, rock, country, folk and pop is delivered with the wallop of The Clash”

Been holed up getting stuff done.  Stuff is almost ready to be released into the world - if you're into downloads and not cds - you can do it now!

"Two Sides To This Town" is now available.  Download and enjoy.  CDs are off getting made and t-shirts will be available soon as well as tote bags!

I've even branched out into USB sticks.  I like the format where I put my albums and artwork on the drive and a few little bonus things as well.  Hope you like it too.  These can all be found on the "Shop" page.

Talk atcha soon.

Feb 26, 2018 

It's finally cooled off here in Anaheim and I'm putting on the finishing touches of my new album "Two Sides To This Town" and it's a doozy.  20 songs all together but in a different way!  It's the same 10 songs ~ twice!  The first 10 are full band versions of the songs and tracks 11-20 are the same songs played in a stripped down acoustic format, closer to how I perform them solo. You spoke, I listened. I hope you dig.  

More coming up soon. Tomorrow I'm with the graphic designer and the first 10 are off getting mastered right now.

Hey Everybody!  

So it's been a little while. Sorry about that - Tracy and I have been on the east coast and now we're back west and moved into our new place in Anaheim* and getting used to the Disney fireworks every night at 9 pm. And having a new neighborhood means finding some new venues and keeping up with the old ones as well.**  

Oh! And the OC Weekly! I had an interview this week with the Weekly and it should be in Thursday's paper - so that's pretty cool. I'm becoming a regular interviewee type of person and it's hard to not sound stupid in these things!***  

Shows:  

Wednesday, Sept 13 - Tracy and Bobbo's Anniversary  
Beatnik Bandito Music Emporium  
417 N. Broadway, Santa Ana, CA  
Americana Music Night  
w/ Mario Rojas and Young Valley  
Show at 8 we're on at 9:30  

Now what's cool and unusual about this show is that 1) It's me and Tracy's 20th Wedding Anniversary so we will be bringing cake with us. and 2) Tracy and I will be joined by Kyrie Anderson and Django Rowe, they are friends of ours from Australia - Kyrie plays drums and Django plays guitar. They are just in town for 2 days and they're playing this show and then going to Disneyland. It's going to be way fun.  

Sunday, Sept 17  
Can't Stop The Serenity - Orange County  
AMC Classic Woodbridge Cinema  
4626 Barranca Parkway, Irvine, CA  
2-6 pm - we play before the afternoon matinee of Serenity.  

Now this show will be our Firefly themed music. We'll be playing songs from our two Leaves on the Wind Music Project cds and proceeds from today will benefit Equality Now. We did a rehearsal for it last night and it was sounding amazing. We had Matt Froehlich on the cajon kit, Georgiana Hennessy on the violin and Matt Tonge on mandolin and banjo.  

We're super excited for these shows as they will be unique and lots of fun. Really hope you can make it out to one or both of the shows!  

And this week's free song is "Stronger than Steel" from our Firefly project. It's a song about how we often don't see how strong women are underneath but just see how pretty they are on the surface. It's probably one of the prettiest songs we've ever written and we tried to capture the spirit of a fancy ball where folks would be waltzing - feel free to waltz along with it.  

Alrighty, back to unpacking stuff - I have actually planted some zucchini in the backyard and some flowers out front already! I'm a regular Farmer Bobbo!  

As always, thanks for hanging with us and see you soon.

*Sue: Hey man, you're not from here, alright. You don't know how it is. I grew up in L.A.  
Trent: Anaheim.  

**Looking to book at the Packing House in Anaheim soon. Anyone have the contact there?  

***I'm hoping I was successful in this endeavor.

The whole thing is held together by the unobtrusive singing of the sympathetic artist, who feels comfortable with this multi-faceted mixture of country rock, alt.country and roots. Singer / Songwriter-Americana, who does not need a Plan B.”
