Bob Semanchik has been a performing musician since the age of 15. He gigged his way through music school and ended up in the popular New Haven, CT, band “The Crayons” in the early 1980’s. The Crayons were one of CT’s most popular bands, playing a mix of originals and covers of the time.

He was influenced as a young player by Duane Allman, Dickey Betts, Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page. More recent additions to his list include Wes Montgomery, Barney Kessel, Django Reinhart and Kenny Burrell.

Over the past nine years, Bob has been a member of the Bales Gitlin Band, a band that has been working together for over 20 years. It was partly through the association with the Bales Gitlin Band and the fantastic jazz musicians featured in the band that Bob acquired a taste for jazz guitar and especially jazz chord melody guitar.

Over the past eight years, Bob has been performing solo jazz guitar for cocktail parties, weddings, and ceremonies at all the popular wedding establishments in CT and the surrounding area.

Some of you may remember seeing Bob play with Waterbury's Marty Q from 1997-2005.

Bob has now branched out on his own to also play clubs with a unique blend of acoustic/vocal, electric blues, classic rock and jazz guitar.

Bob uses a compact Bose L1 Model II PA system to fill the room with high quality crystal clear sound at reasonable sound levels. For larger venues JBL Eon's and Mackie SRM 450's will easily do the job. Guitars include a Martin 00028 with a Baggs pickup, an Eastman Jazz archtop, various high quality nylon string guitars and Fender or Gibson electrics.
