To start the New Year off, Bob Burger, who is a well-known guitarist resident in Marlborough, will be the headliner for the Marlborough Arts Center’s 4th Friday @ the Arts Café musical evening on Friday, January 25. 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 local clubs, bars, various groups, 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 75, Bob teaches part-time and plays for community shows. The Arts Center is delighted to host Bob for the first time at this 4th Friday @ the Arts Café. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. Concert Begins at 7:30 p.m.
