      What was your favorite part of the performance? My son and I really enjoyed it Bob, thanks so much. We only got a little over a half hour though, started having streaming difficulties and had to give up. Best wishes on your new project. I've been a fan since the Dan and Bob show, but never had a chance to hear you live before. Bright Avenue was a big help to me many years ago. Thanks again for the blessing.

Bob Bennett spent the better part of his boyhood camped out next to the family record player, listening to his older brother’s extensive folk music collection. He was captivated and wholly inspired by what the speakers projected: literate story songs, ballads, creative humor, travelogues, songs of work and family, faith and doubt. When Bob finally picked up a guitar at age ten and began writing these kinds songs for himself, it became immediately clear that he’d paid close attention in “stereo school” and there would definitely be one less doctor, lawyer or Indian chief in the neighborhood! He’s recorded eleven critically acclaimed solo albums, artists such as Glen Campbell have recorded his songs. He’s worked in concert with Amy Grant, David Wilcox, Pierce Pettis, Barry McGuire, Phil Keaggy, Bruce Carroll, Randy Stonehill, and Steve Bell. The Orange County Register simply encourages “music fans [to] discover his intimate and beautiful folk style on a range of wonderful discs. Life seems to keep infusing Bennett with plenty of experiences to fuel the growth needed to keep his songs relevant.” Bob says, “There are not many guys who can say they’ve spent a lifetime doing the precise thing they always wanted to do. It’s certainly not a get-rich-quick scheme, but in my own way I try to pass along the magic of what I was first given. I dearly love the fact that this actually is my day job, although I usually work the night shift!” When asked how he measures his success, he replies with a smile, “Hotel soap! If I have lots of hotel soaps at home, then it must mean I’m working enough. As long as I don’t have to buy a full-sized bar out of necessity, then I’m in good shape!”
