"Bobby is a wonderful drummer. He’s experienced, professional and incredibly well organized. He is one of the most competent and knowledgeable drummers I know, he shows up early every time (even before I get there), and he is supportive and always smiling. He takes the time before every rehearsal, to practice all of my songs (old and new) until they are perfect. Bobby has always taken the time to capture the essence of each of my original songs, which is important because the drums set the tone for the song."
