Bob Burger to Perform at Strand Theater in Lakewood
The historic STRAND Center for the Arts presents Bob Burger with guests Marc Ribler and Jo Wymer. The Strand welcomes Jersey Shore singer/songwriter Bob Burger for a Backstage Pass performance that should not be missed. Opening the show will be guitarist Marc Ribler and rocker Jo Wymer.
Over the years, Bob has opened for Dennis DeYoung (formerly of Styx), Meatloaf, Robert Palmer, Hootie and the Blowfish, and Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, among others. He has also brought together several musician friends for shows paying tribute to some of the artists who have influenced his music, including Fleetwood Mac, Neil Young and Tom Petty. In addition, Bob has self-produced and recorded four acclaimed CDs, Cymbals at Dawn, Surprise Party, Christmas Can’t Wait and The Day After all on his own BIG BRAVE Music label. He was also very involved with co-producing and co-writing portions of Lisa Bouchelle’s latest CD, Bleu Room with a Red Vase.
In 2007, he was asked to provide music for a Hamptons Labor Day party that Jon Bon Jovi was throwing for friends. Midway into the party, some of the revelers felt like jamming with Bob and the band. No one special…only Paul McCartney, Billy Joel, Jimmy Buffett, Roger Waters and of course Jon Bon Jovi, himself. And later, McCartney was seen on the dance floor, mouthing the words of “Back in the U.S.S.R.” as Bob belted out the Beatles tune.
With fans like that, Bob clearly is on the right track.
Rocker Jo Wymer at once bludgeons and seduces her audiences with her gritty and soulful songs. In a musical landscape often dominated by youngsters, Wymer is a grownup. She earned every one of the open, raw, and unrefined feelings in her songs – heartache, yearning, sex, lust, sin, romance, loss, and joy –and her voice promises her audiences will feel them too. The visceral experience of hearing and watching Wymer deliver these songs with her voice, her guitar, and her hard rocking band, in one of her sweat-soaked live performances, leaves her audiences more than satisfied, yet still yearning. She wouldn’t have it any other way.
