by Carolyn Mansager: I met Bob today after his performance at the Deaf Festival in Los Angeles, not only is he a terrific musician, but a warm, gracious individual. Thank you, Bob for the encouragement today for my becoming a sign language interpreter and thinking it was cool I can play banjo. Rock on! Great performance today. What a treat! I look forward to enjoying your music again someday, too.

by Anonymous: Bob was born in Germany Aug 1, 1952 and raised in Canada within a family of classical musicians, which inspired his love for music. It was the Blackfoot Indian Tribe during the Pow-Wow ceremony in Canada that inspired him to be a drummer. Bob is now a member of the all-deaf rock band Beethoven’s Nightmare and has successfully toured across America. In July of 2010 Bob and his All Deaf Rock Band – Beethoven’s Nightmare – will appear in Las Vegas Nevada at the Deaf Nation Convention.
