Austin is a renowned music town and the list of successful artists that call it home is as long as
it is eclectic and numerous, but Bob has set himself apart in more ways than one: 'Lonelyland,' for instance, is the 1
bestselling album ever at Waterloo Records, the city’s legendary indie music store, having sold 25,000 copies at that
location alone. Bob also performs every Monday night at the tiny local favorite Saxon Pub, playing both old and new material for a
SRO crowd. And when he isn’t on the road, Bob plays as many as four more times per week at larger venues all over Austin.
At the core of Bob Schneider’s talent lies a versatile singer/songwriter. But Bob has too much to say and too much
to play to be tied to the limits of that model. All of his many faces are revealed through his solo work and the bands that he
fronts – The Scabs (performing this year at the Austin City Limits Music Festival), Texas Bluegrass Massacre, and Lonelyland.
His fans have come to expect the unexpected from Bob Schneider but all of these bands give him free rein to explore the music that
he loves – funk, pop, bluegrass, jazz, soul, blues, hip-hop and good old-fashioned bar rock raunchy enough to make you flush,
and emotional enough to choke you up...
