Throughout the rest of his career, Bob continued to provide musical performances presented by hard-working, creative musicians who knew that music is more to most people than just entertainment. He knew that music defines a great deal of the human experience, that it provides the soundtrack by which people celebrate milestones, welcome new experiences, relive old ones, and date their memories.
