January’s 4th Friday@ the Arts Cafe
To start the New Year off, Bob Burger, a well-known guitarist resident in Marlborough, will be performing at the Marlborough Arts Center’s 4th Friday @ the Arts Café on Friday, January 24. Bob is a semi-retired professional musician whose career began at age 8, singing with the Diocesan Chorister Boys’ Choir in Brooklyn, NY. Later, while attending the University of Hartford, he started taking guitar lessons with Bob Shaw, the Jazz Guitar Professor at Hartford Conservatory. His first professional singing and guitar performance was with the Lou Dee Band in West Springfield, Massachusetts. After just a year, Bob started the Sunshine Band, and played at local clubs, bars, various churches and weddings. In addition, he started teaching guitar to beginners from his home in Marlborough which has remained his base. At age 40 he joined the Rythmaires and by the age of 50 was a full-time professional musician. Now at age 76, Bob teaches part-time and plays for community shows. The Arts Center is delighted to host Bob at the January 4th Friday @ the Arts Café. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and the concert begins at 7:30.
