Bob Hines Returns to Say Ciao!
July 26 @ 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”
