Bob Palindrome

05:00 pm
The Player's Pub

This Macon, Georgia born and bred “cracker” turned Hoosier writes songs played on the weirdest rig that ever sounded like a piano in a style that can best be described as “Ray Charles meets Jerry Lee Lewis in a head-on collision with no survivors.” Piano teachers should be prepared to avert their eyes since Bob never had a piano lesson and couldn’t care less about proper technique.
