Bobby Brennan: Born to Bass



Bobby Brennan is a phenomenal bass player who has performed on several major national tours.  He’s currently working on the Cirque du Soleil arena tour of “Corteo.”  It’s evident that Bobby loves what he does, and that joy permeates his whole life.  He’s also got a very inspirational story of drastic weight loss, and radical lifestyle change.  You can follow his health & wellness journey, as well as his musical escapades on Instagram or on Facebook.

Here are two of the YouTube clips that I referenced.
Bobby Brennan – Bass 1
Bobby Brennan – Bass 2

Bobby is a huge fan of Bruce Springsteen, so I had to reference one of The Boss’s tunes for the title of this episode.


Dave Hamar: Learn from everything



In this episode, I talk to Dave Hamar.  He is a drummer, composer, teacher and he’s currently playing with rising star, Mandy Harvey.

We talk about getting started playing music, making the jump to be a professional, and even gear.  See if you can catch the nerd references he throws out there.  I actually really appreciate his gaming analogy!!! You’ll hear in this episode how great a story-teller he is.  That’s likely why he’s such an interesting drummer to listen to and to play with.  Be sure to listen all the way to the end.

You can find Dave online at these places.

Will Scecina: Deciding to be available



Will Scecina is a working musician in Florida. Recently he’s been the touring guitarist for rising star, Mandy Harvey.

In this episode Will talks to me about how he got started playing, why he left NYC, and part of his life while on tour.  He says he’s had two pivotal moments in his career; the decision to go full time, and the decision to not be stuck in one role. When he’s been honest with what he wants in life, the universe has responded in kind.

You can find Will and his band, Anyan Dévery, on Instagram and their websites.
