It is that time of year when summer begins to fade to autumn before our eyes. September is more than half over and the nighttime temperatures get down into the low 50s. The White Sox are in 1st place playing great baseball for the moment. The Bobby Rex Group has just completed some crucial shows and some special thanks are in order.
First of all thanks must go out to Queen of Angels Catholic Elementary School in Chicago at Western & Sunnyside who hired the full 4-piece Bobby Rex Group for their Harvest Jam on Saturday afternoon September 15th. Special thanks goes out to Frank Manna and Cathy and Jon Mitchell who made it a reality for the band. The Bobby Rex Group hopes to be invited back in 2013. The band enjoyed playing and all had a blast.
Special thanks should also go out to Lovell's of Lake Forest who allowed The Bobby Rex Group (trio) to rock the house and keep people up dancing the night before. Friday night Sept 14th was a memorable night with Ira on bass and David Thornton on percussion. The wonderful guests, and you know who you are, were much appreciated by the band.
Thanks are also in order to Tony & Kristen of Scapa Italian Kitchen in Clarendon Hills for keeping Bobby & Steve on as the entertainment the 1st Friday of every month. It has worked out well for everyone in 2012. Bobby & Steve are looking forward to continuing on at Scapa into 2013. Also for 16 months Bobby & Steve have been in the regular music rotation at Weber Grill in Lombard. Thank you Weber Grill Lombard. Look for Bobby Rex solo at Weber Grill Lombard Thursday September 20th at 6pm.
Bobby Rex Group would also like to thank Sue O'Connell of Crescendo Music who has placed a Bobby Rex Duo in venues like Winberies, Countryside Saloon, Carriage Greens, Weber Grill Schaumburg, and Pompei of Orland. Look for Bobby Rex Duo in these venues in the upcoming months as well.
One last thanks goes out to Cooper's Hawk Winery & Restaurant in Burr Ridge. This is a great place to catch Bobby Rex solo. Having performed there twice already Bobby has 3 more dates on the books in the upcoming months.
Bobby Rex Group has a few dates open in November and December so call 708-415-6410 soon if you'd like to leave the music at your next event up to us. Bobby Rex Group is also beginning to fill in dates in 2013.
