ABOUT

I am currently seeking a female vocalist (instrument skills a plus) for a duo situation, using Professional MIDI and performance tracks. I cover various classic rock, soft rock, country, southern rock, popular current pop, oldies and standards. I have an arsenal of over 1000 songs and growing available to work with.

I am also available for fill in/temp gigs on guitar, keys or both. I would consider staying on with the right band mix of people and music selection.

Ideally I would like to work private parties, community centers and restaurant/bars. I am also available for fill in gigs if needed. Feel free to add me to your Facebook friends as Bob Moonbear. www.facebook.com/bobmoonbearmusic

I chose to start a new chapter in life and moved to the Tampa Bay, Florida area in January of 2016 from the Southern New Jersey area. I have been playing music for over 43 years from my start in 1973 with Flight of Freedom, a wedding and social band to my final NJ project, High Noone Express. During that time I have played with area favorites such as the original Double Shot, The Strayz, Hazbinz, Who Killed Kenny and more. In the not too distant past I played keyboards for the Allman Brothers Tribute band, Hotlanta, playing keys. I have performed at shore resorts, venues and casinos and have been with bands that opened concerts for Lita Ford, Servant and The Dovels. Recently my original song "Cereal Killer Blues" was selected as the title track to an Indie horror movie, "Infernum Cable” – a nominee for the GenCon Filmmaker Awards.

As a musician, I play keyboards and guitar and sing lead and backup vocals. When performing solo or with a duo I use top quality, professionally recorded performance tracks that allow me the ability to deliver a full band sound.
