Steven Hobert & Friends

Steven Hobert & Friends

Collaboration was the order of the day as Steven Hobert filled Studio 5 with a diverse group to help celebrate and announce the release of his new album entitled "Ocean Eyes".
15022354390_2a3be93760_zFrom his bio I borrowed what I thought you all might like to know:  Steven Hobert has wandered through musical landscapes as varied as the dazzling corral to the barren arctic, as a composer and soloist as well as with many other groups.  He leads the group FireFly Forest and also plays accordion in Lulu's Playground with the unique combination of trumpet, cello, and guitar.  He recently completed a year tour through Japan, Canada and the United States with the world famous Glen Miller Orchestra.  He has performed with a number of symphony orchestras including Calgary, Detroit, and Buffalo, conducted the band for vocal group 5-by-Design on several tours, played on cruise ships in the Caribbean, and in production shows at Dorney Amusement Park in Allentown, PA.  Steven holds a Bachelor of Music Liberal Arts and minor in Piano Pedagogy from University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.  He resides in Minneapolis and is a free-lance musician and teacher playing piano, accordion, woodwinds, singing and making people smile.
All of those elements and more were exhibited on  "Live From Studio 5!"

Sarah Lawson played, as Doug said the whatchamacallit drum thingy.

Tony Axtell on an amazing Godin hollow body acoustic / electric bass.
And just when we thought things could not be  mellow enough,


Corry Grossman melted us with his Cello.
