ABOUT

I am currently seeking a working band or duo situation. 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. I cover various classic rock, soft rock, country, southern rock, popular current pop, oldies and standards.

Ideally I would like to work private parties, community centers and restaurant/bars. Feel free to add me to your friends as Bob Moonbear. ./bobmoonbearmusic
About Me:
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 a wedding and social band to my final NJ duo project in 2015. During that time, I have played with area favorites such as the original Double Shot, The Strayz and more. In the not too distant past I played keyboards for the Allman Brothers Tribute band, Hotlanta. 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. Since moving to Florida I have worked as fill in or partnered with
The Accidentalz, Coastal Remedy Duo, Jerzey Boyz Duo, Bob Moonbear Solo, with Henry Lawrence as duo, The IPA Band (occasional fill ins), Mojo 5 Band (occasional fill ins) The Karen & Jimmy Band (occasional fill ins), Melanie Massell & Company, Hot Item, The Massell-Moonbear Duo
Studio keys for Pinewolf & The Pack - Album: Oh Yeah! (2012)
