Bobby And The Angels
Originally formed in 2004, lead guitarist, Bobby Angel, drummer, Darren Lantello, bassist, Angelo Barbera, keyboardist, Rob Black, guitarist, Keith Simmonds, and lead vocalist, Jack Brand offer top notch 50's 60's pop musical performances. BOBBY ANGEL has lived two dangerous lives, one as a major market morning radio jock (LA & Sacramento) and the other as a versatile guitarist. Born and raised in NYC, Bobby was greatly inspired by his prominent musical family; his Mom and Dad having headlined their own orchestra, notably entertaining dignitaries for Presidents Kennedy, Nixon, Ford and Reagan. DARREN LANTELLO is the heartbeat of the group. As one major record producer put it, "I always wished for a simple steady drummer like Charlie Watts or Ringo Starr. Now, I've got one, Darren Lantello". ANGELO BARBERA has played bass with such top acts as The Doors, The Motels, Berlin, and Lita Ford to name a few. He also served as one of Capitol Records top staff musicians. ROB BLACK is one fantastic keyboardist, but also funny as heck. Sometimes the band's gotta hold him back from breaking full tilt into his stand-up comedy act. Rob hails from Sacramento, California and has toured the USA and Asia many times. KEITH SIMMONDS entered the music biz as a trombonist. Things changed when he held a classic electric guitar in his arms and fell in love. He speaks "advanced technology" fluently and so communicates with the engineering staff at the band's many venues. Lead vocalist, JACK BRAND is the band's eye candy; one handsome guy who not only sings with skill, conviction and soul, but also acts professionally with these same exciting attributes. Yes, when Jack isn't “rockin' the room”, he's a popular screen and stage performer with quite a respectable resume. Everybody loved him lots on TV's "The Bold and the Beautiful". These talented and versatile musicians are BOBBY AND THE ANGELS. .Well. except sometimes there is a little devil in everybody.
