Welcome to Kick Acts. Tell us a little about yourself and your band and were you can be found at on the web.
My name is Bob Pressner. I’m a singer-songwriter out of Boca Raton, FL. You can find my catalogue of music and music videos on YouTube. I have over 20 million views on a lot of my music videos and have really made my mark in music through YouTube and social media. I also had a Comcast Live OnDemand special which can also be found on YouTube air last year and it ranked #1.
Who are your musical heroes, influences & why?
Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen and Michael Hedges are a few of my favorites.
Do you have any advice for someone just getting started in playing music? Any pitfalls they should avoid?
Avoid anyone who tells you that you can get rich quick. Music is a business just like any other and it requires work, commitment, persistence, and patience. For the most part you don’t become a huge success overnight. Beware of those who tell you that you will…
Do you have a greatest gig story you’d like to share?
I played the Sundance Film Festival last year that was quite a thrill. That was probably my favorite.
On the same token as the above question. How about a “worse gig” ever story.
Hmmm, that’s a tough one. I guess when I was younger and inexperienced I had a couple of bad shows where maybe I didn’t know how to handle playing a set right or a drunk crowd or something like that…no great stories come to mind.
Do you have any other hobbies other than playing music? Collect stamps? Collect hats from off the side of the road? Draw pictures of boobs?
I love watching almost any sport, but really love playing golf. No stamp or hat collection…and sure, I think I could probably draw some nice lookin’ boobs if necessary.
What do you think about the present music scene or lack of?
Looks like music has really blown up on the Internet and in all things social media related. However, even with the success of YouTube, it’s still a struggle to monetize music today, even if you have millions of fans who subscribe to your channel.
Tell us something about you that we wouldn’t expect to hear… (Like weird hobbies or something like that)
I once hosted my own TV show. That was pretty cool. It was years ago, but I still got it! In fact, I’d like to host my own show again down the road!
Hypothetical situation. You’re stranded on Gilligan’s island and you get to hook up with only one of the girls. Is it Ginger, Mary Ann or Mrs. Howell and why?
Can I not have all 3?
Our last question is called “Shout It Out Loud”. It’s where you get to talk about whatever you want to talk about. So go ahead and “SHOUT IT OUT LOUD”!
GO TO iTUNES AND BUY MY ALBUM!
