Bob joined the EFO in August 1999 with his explosive trumpet playing. He also plays flugelhorn and is a vocalist in the band. At the age of 9 he took lessons from Happy Louie and started playing with the Paul Mitus Band at the age of 14.
Bob retired from playing trumpet for 18 years and got the urge to start again and dusted his trumpet off and the rest is history. He has played with numerous bands such as: Paul Mitus, New Brass Reunion Band, Paul Brozek's Polka Jamboree Band, Billy Belina and Baystate, Freddy K, and Dave Grawonski and Musical Magic.
Bob resides in Three Rivers, MA with his wife Mary Lee.
