Bob Schneider sings!

I had never heard of this guy until I saw him on Austin City Limits this week.  Now, I'm a fan.  He's one of those amazing musicians that continue to be turned out in Texas.  He doesn't look like he does in this video.  The hair is shorter but shaggier and he has a full beard.  In a brief interview after his performance he said he can't figure out why people pay money to come and listen to him sing songs he wrote in his bedroom.  He reportedly has a repertoire of 400 songs.  This one . . . performed on an earlier ACL show . . . reportedly is his trademark.  Get up on your feet and prepare to "shake your booty!"

This next one is even better.

Bob has literally thousands of songs not only 400. The guy is prolific and he's fantastic to see perform live. His 2009 release "Lovely Creatures" is fab and spun off the hit "40 Dogs (Like Romeo & Juliet.) He's doing a limited solo acoustic tour right now, check him out at He's humble, funny, and an incredible musician. His band kicks butt too. As you can tell, I'm a huge Bob fan. Love him.

This guy is a perfect example of what comes out of Texas, especially Austin. I love him, too.
