Bob Hines Returns to Say Ciao!

March 28 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Bobby Hines grew up in Palo Alto CA in the 60s which was a good time for music. “I got my first guitar when I was 11 and took four lessons. I believe the teacher wanted me to learn fingerpicking so we started out on a song called Freight Train. After four lessons I remember coming home with the the books and continuing to study on my own. Falling in love with  Beatles music I soon wanted my own electric guitar and four of my classmates to form my first band. First gig I can remember playing was in fifth grade at a talent show in the auditorium.  Later on in seventh grade I would play at the high school for  Sock Hop. I was introduced to jazz by a very good friend who played much better than I did. He introduced me to players like Joe Pass, West Montgomery, Grant Green, and of course George Benson. I spent many days playing as his rhythm guitar player learning  jazz standards and pop songs. Fast forward a few years, and I’m playing  different places and up and down the West Coast,  with a friend who played keyboards.

Anyway living in Portland I played with numerous bands , And I put out my first CD in 1995 called “ Other Worlds Then Ours” And another CD in 2010 called 2 Many Dogs in the Alley. I moved to Vancouver  n 2004 and continued playing in a band called Too Wet to Plow before becoming a solo artist”
