Bob Schneider

For nearly ten years, Bob Schneider has performed a Monday night residency at the Saxon Pub, an intimate and legendary venue on South Lamar, austin, texas. Bob and the members of Lonelyland, the band name that he uses to keep these shows "underground," are seated on stage as they work through a "live rehearsal" of songs that Bob calls up from his repertoire of over four hundred songs. There are always new songs that are played for the first time or new arrangements of classics that are tested. The show often begins with acoustic, somber and introspective songs and eventually gives way to storytelling, raunchy rock and comedic breaks. ...show more

For nearly ten years, Bob Schneider has performed a Monday night residency at the Saxon Pub, an intimate and legendary venue on South Lamar, austin, texas. Bob and the members of Lonelyland, the band name that he uses to keep these shows "underground," are seated on stage as they work through a "live rehearsal" of songs that Bob calls up from his repertoire of over four hundred songs. There are always new songs that are played for the first time or new arrangements of classics that are tested. The show often begins with acoustic, somber and introspective songs and eventually gives way to storytelling, raunchy rock and comedic breaks.

But anything goes...really. And, that is exactly what the audience loves about Bob Schneider. Bob's recording career spans some 20 albums, which include eight solo albums and those with his bands, all of which are legendary in the [placeformed]Austin, Texas[placeformed[ music scene of the 90's, The Scabs, Joe Rockhead and The Ugly Americans. There are many peaks within these albums but Lonelyland (2001) and I'm Good Now (2004) stand out at as the "mainstream highlights" while album artist=Bob Schneider]The Galaxy Kings[/album] (2002) and Underneath The Onion Trees (2000), are beautiful "artistic statements" and fan favorites.

If you take a journey through this collection of albums you'll discover an artist with no boundaries. Bob's repertoire covers a spectrum of musical styles.... mambo, rap, blues, country, Latin, swing, soul, even bluegrass.... all done with the aplomb of a virtuoso of any one of those musical genres. ...show less
