Prolific musician Bob Schneider’s continuous and unexpected output mitigates a cross-section of genres including rock, pop, folk, funk, and country, all coated in Schneider’s catchy melodies and off-kilter delivery. His newest release, “King Kong Vol.II” – second in the three-EP series dubbed the King Kong Suite – was released in June, enshrined in Schneider’s own collage-work. A meeting between orchestral pop, broken bluesy rock, and funky synth grooves, the EP features a series of lush arrangements, Schneider’s passionate vocal delivery, and a list of new curiosities, including an ode to Han Solo. “Vol. III” of the King Kong Suite is due to be released this fall.
Bob Schneider is teaming up with the Tosca String Quartet yet again for a performance at the Long Center for Performing Arts on Friday, July 10th, and you can stream their full performance right here on KUTX.
