Bob Westfall has been performing, recording,producing, and writing songs for 30 years and has had The Bob Westfall Quartet together for over fifteen years. Talk about a band that can switch gears.The Bob Westfall Band was the Winner for "Unique Artist",and, "Jazz Album of The Year" at(MAMA)The Madison Area Music Awards for 2007.Westfall was also nominated for "Instrumentalist of the Year". Westfall plays Guitar, Mandolin,Vocals. Chris Wagoner on Violin, Lap Steel, Vocals,and Accordion. Mary Gaines on Bass,Guitar,and Vocals,and Tom Ellis on Percussion. This is the regular band but we also do a just strings thing trading out the percussionist for a Rhythm guitarist, Micah Olsan. Whatever we are doing we are always striving to push the musical envelope and have a damn good time doing it! Bon' Appetite!
We've got a hot new CD" just out "Beautifully Mad " which is getting rave reviews from fans and critics alike. An instrumental disc with our old band mate Chandler Fritz holding down the guitar duties so Bob can just play mandolin. Chris and Mary really shine on this one and, Bob and Chris do a beautiful job on McCartney's "Eleanor Rigby". It's a Jazz-Grass-Latin-Swing thing.
