Bobby Talks ACOUSTIC POWER
Bobby dispells the myth that you need electric guitars to be heavy. He uses Elm Treason music to demonstrate.
Who Have You see Most?
Another quick and fun one we’d love to hear from you on.
Andy has seen McCartney 8 times. Bobby has seen Rush (as can best be determined) at least 25 times.
Which artist have YOU seen most?
Let ‘er rip in the comments section!

Deep Purple! They were my dad’s favorite band, so we went to every show within driving distance for as long as I can remember.
Hi Gwendolyn! Thanks for commenting here! DEEP PURPLE???? Sweet. The band must hold a very special place in your heart, yes?
Moody Blues 5 times
Steve Geyer 18 times, but he is a local guitarist
Bonefish Johnny 38 times, local blues guy in Miami
Local music makers count!
I (Andy) LOVE that you are so invested in local music makers. It is a beautiful thing, Ann. Steve is lucky to have you as a dedicated fan!
Ace Furley, you can’t get much funnier than that. I learned how to play lead guitar by copying Ace Furley licks.
LOL! Yeah, when we saw that, we knew it HAD to be shared. Ace influenced and inspired a lot of people to pick up a guitar.
I just checked out a guitar. I had them put it aside for me until tomorrow. It has three things I really like. Non-gloss finish. Cutaway for access to higher frets. Built-in pickup and FX. Tomorrow I play everything else in the store to make sure I’m choosing the right one. I think this one’s a keeper.
And it looks like you DID choose the right one. CONGRATS!
Bowie 4 he is the big one! But Tea Party place in at 9 and I lost count at 15 for Teenage Head!
Oops! Not that it really matters but Lowest of the low ties at nine with T party if you do not count seeing members with their solo gigs. Most of the big guns come in at two or three so Bowie still kills it at four!
These last two bands, I (Andy) have to assume, are bands that are well known locally or provincially? Like Ann’s comment, I’ll reiterate what I said to her… I think it’s outstanding to listen to and support local bands or regional bands. Some of the best music makers around are NOT international names.
Boiled In Lead, twin cities rock/celtic folk band. Huge energy, I saw them for at least a dozen St. Patricks’ Days plus more at least ten more times. I gave myself whiplash dancing at one of their acoustic shows, no shit…
Oh Em Gee Chuck that is amazing and just a little insane whiplash at an acoustic show?? For me it is the The Mahones a Toronto-based Celtic punk band and have course have seen the Dropkick Murphys but would love to see them in Boston on Saint Paddy‘s day! I must visit the Twin Cities sometimes as it seems you have an off a lot of fun up there actually I guess since I am from Canada it would be down there lol I follow Ryan Van Sluten!
ANYTIME whiplash is a thing at an acoustic show, it is a VERY GOOD day.
Pink Floyd … post Roger Waters… twice.
Very cool, Chuck. I (Andy) never saw them live. Sadly.
Rush 10 times
OUTSTANDING. I (Andy) think Bobby saw them in excess of 20 times…. something like that.
