KIRK KOBOS, Instrumental soloist, singer, song writer, ghost writer, one man band, muli band associate, guitar player for hire, guitar player and musician, solo projects and bands playing paid gigs at 15 years old. Began playing for junior high school students, and other venues. My first paid gig was for our Junior High school (1983), the student body voted to have my band play, instead of having the school dance. My band members at that time were, my self on guitar, Matt Harris on drums, Matt Heartz on bass, I do not remember who ran the lights but they did an excellent job too. I used to go out at lunch time to the black top with my guitar and amp, and gather a crowd of kids who would throw their lunch money at my feet to hear my at that time cross between Hendrix and Van Halen style of guitar, which I used many different items to get strange sounds from my guitar. Over the years I have wrote many songs, now published some of them and solos that can be heard on Amazon mp3.
