Bob Schneider is the Energizer Bunny of the music business. Not only does he tour almost continuously year after year, hes got so many musical avenues that he manages to constantly change up his show. Schneider can shift from rapper to singer-songwriter in less than a drumbeat, and he can lay on the funk or rock like Bob Seger when the mood strikes. (He counts Queen, Prince and the Police as influences, with a bit of Earth, Wind & Fire thrown in for good measure.) Those eclectic qualities have led him to open national tours for acts as different as the Dave Matthews Band and the Dixie Chicks. In spite of his widespread national success, Schneider continues to bring his music to small clubs and intimate venues like McGonigels Mucky Duck.
