Bob Schneider at Liberty Hall onMarch 29
TYLER- The City of Tyler’s Liberty Hall is proud to once again host Austin musician, Bob Schneider, March 29 at 8:00 p.m. This will be Bob’s third concert at Liberty Hall, each one has been a sold out event.
Bob Schneider is a fixture on the Austin music scene, having kicked around for years in various bands before embarking on a solo career in 1999. Born in Michigan and partially raised in Germany, he dropped out of the University of Texas at El Paso to front his first band, the funk and rap outfit “Joe Rockhead”. The band released three independent albums before disbanding prior to signing with a major label. A stint with a band called “The Ugly Americans” followed, which experienced some success as an opening act for the Dave Matthews Band. Then in 1997, Schneider went on to co-found the “Scabs”, where he made a further name for himself. He then became a solo act in 1999.
Schneider’s musical approach as a solo artist continues with an eclectic and diverse musical style, combining the traditional singer/songwriter aesthetic with elements of funk, country, rock, and folk. With his edgy lyrics about alienation, drug addiction, and lost romance, he has gained a national fan base. Schneider has released several albums, including various “side projects” via his own label, Shockorama Records. Schneider’s most recent release is “Burden of Proof” last year.
“If you like something different and you love a party you will love Bob’s show. I had no idea who he was until we had him at Liberty Hall and now I am a huge fan!”, said Anne Payne, Liberty Hall Manager.
Tickets are $20 online and $25 at the door (if still available). The VIP boxes (seat 4) are $200 per show. For tickets or more information, go to www.LibertyTyler.com or follow Liberty Hall on Facebook and Twitter.
