Fat Amy Returns! Bob Guiney In Concert
Those of you that know me may remember that I've been a fan of the band Fat Amy since the mid 90s. I built my first real web site for Fat Amy, back in early 1996 and was the webmaster for Fat Amy - and subsequently the Bob Guiney Band - until just earlier this year. Bob was on the Bachelorette and then he was chosen to be The Bachelor (season 4) and has had a nice TV career ever since.
Not your average 15 minutes of fame.
What many of the Bachelor/Bachelorette viewers didn't know is that Bob was in music long before he went on those shows. Fat Amy released several studio albums and had a nice following in the midwest and toured from coast to coast before they went on Hiatus around the turn of the century. Things got quiet while Bob made a living as a mortgage broker until his appearance on The Bachelorette in 2003.
Anyway, Bob got back together with some of the members of Fat Amy, and recruited a few other band members from the Michigan scene, and released another album with Wind Up Records as the "Bob Guiney Band". Some of the songs on the album were previously unrecorded Fat Amy songs, some were previously recorded Fat Amy songs (re-recorded with the new band), and some new songs as well. BGB toured the nation in support of this album, but Bob has been so busy in the TV world that the music side of things, in terms of the BGB, was mostly on the shelf.
Well, it looks like the band is getting back together for their first show in several years - they're playing a place called The Wolf Den, located in the Mohegan Sun Casino/Hotel in Connecticut.
If you're in or near Connecticut, you should go check it out!
