My latest original Song Demos are further down, all created on a Roland FA-06 workstation.
My stuff can also be found on Soundcloud. It's what I do now as a geezer.

The location of that cymbal is the reason I no longer can hear out of my right ear. Eh?

Band
Another fabulous Bobby solo on the Rhodes piano. Well... maybe not.

Band
Gene cranking it out - such a tremendous singer and entertainer. Heart and Soul of the band.

What ever happened to that big songwriting career, Bob?... Oh, yeah.

The 11th Hour Live was recorded between 1983-1985 in venues in Fresno and Monterey, CA. That's my brother Gene and
Diane DeGallery sharing the lead vocals. Gene once had his own showband entitled the Sidewalk Arcade that toured the
country in the early seventies. He was a marvelous vocalist and front man. We launched the 11th Hour in Fresno in 1980,
doing all types of weddings and parties, and naturally turned it into a full-time endeavor. Playing mostly local clubs, we
eventually became the house band at what used to be the Doubletree Hotel, at the wharf in Monterey. What a place! Living
in a luxury hotel and playing music six nights a week was truly living the dream. I ran the band for 6 months following
Gene's death in 1985. It could never be the same. Take a listen if you've got the time. And thanks.
