Thank you to the friends who came out to see the Bobby Rex Duo at Tuscany in Wheeling Saturday February 23rd. I appreciate you making your dinner plans based on where I am playing. John Metzger and I will be back at Tuscany Wheeling Saturday March 9th at 7pm.

I am enjoying playing solo and will continue to book as many solo dates as I can handle. See Bobby Rex solo at Cooper's Hawk in Burr Ridge on Thursday Feb. 28th & Friday March 15th from 7 to 9pm and Saturday March 30th from 8 to 11pm. Last Friday night (Feb 22nd) at Tannins in Elmhurst was a lot of fun. All the seats were taken so you could say it was standing room only. I was able to do 5 original songs during my two hour set there. Looking to play there again in late Spring or early summer.
If you'd like to hire Bobby Rex to perform at an event you are having please call me at 708-415-6410 or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. As well as performing solo, I put together custom duos, trios, and full bands to suit every unique event so please give me details about your specific event and your musical vision. That way I'll know which one of my musical groups will best fit the engagement. Call me for a hassle free quote.
Lastly I'd like to mention an upcoming show at Grand Tavern in Brookfield, IL on Friday April 19th. This Bobby Rex Duo will be doing a bunch of original songs along with popular cover songs & requests. Save the date Friday April 19th. The show starts at 9pm and runs until 12:30am. This will be my first time here and I'm looking forward to a great show. Thanks to Mike, John, & Shannon DeFatta for allowing me to perform here.
