The Bob Marshall Band is a mix of eclectic musicians who have been performing collectively for over 200 years! That is a TON of experience on one stage.
Bob's mother always played the popular Italian singers of her day on the old stereo system. Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Perry Como, Dean Martin, and others, filled the house. Bob's father listened to Marty Robbins and Burl Ives. Growing up Bob loved Motown, the blues greats, rock and roll and the singer songwriters. These early years explain why Bob has such an eclectic taste in musical styles.
Bob has rodeo'ed professionally for 30 years, raised and trained horses, and still runs a horse training and boarding facility to this day.
Dean "Cavonuchi" Clouse
"Deano Cavonuchi" started out playing ukelele
when he was three years old. Once he was old enough to sing, he learned to harmonize from his grandmother. Dean has been a long time main stay, lead guitar player in the state of Michigan, performing in too many bands to name, but encompassing every musical style imaginable. Dean brings great rock leads and beautiful harmonies to the Bob Marshall Band.
Dave "The Monster" Duncan
Providing a dead steady, and precise metronome-like beat, Dave has been a sought- after drummer for various groups. We truly are honored to have Dave in the group. In addition to his drumming skills, Dave possesses an encyclopedic knowledge of popular music. If you have the opportunity to bet on Dave to win a musical Trivial Pursuit game, DO IT!
Tom is a multi-instrumentalist who seems to prefer playing his amazing bass runs on a 5 string Fender Jazz Bass. Tom always finds just the right things to play to really bring out the best in a song. Tom spent many years as a touring musician with some big names in the music industry. We are thrilled he has hitched himself to our musical wagon.
"Wild" Bill McAbrens
Bill is our very own "International Man of Mystery". No one knows where or how he got the moniker of "Wild" Bill and he ain't talking! Rock solid on probably one of the most difficult instruments to master, Bill adds those tasteful pedal steel guitar licks that make country music stand out from other genres.
Collectively the band has been performing together since 2014. One of these days we just might open up a rehearsal session to the public so that everyone can see how music is supposed to be played. The guys all have fun, poking fun at each other, cracking jokes (not all of them GOOD jokes) and are just happy to be having fun, doing what they love to do.
