Bob Taylor, Keyboards
Bob Taylor has been playing Keyboards and cracking us up since early 2009. Another of South Florida’s local legends, Bob is an all-around musician, keyboardist, producer and the funniest guy we know. In demand on stage and in the studio for his mastery of eclectic styles and authentic sound, he has decades of experience performing and recording locally and internationally. In concert, he has backed reggae legends Marcia Griffiths of The I-Threes and foundational guitarist Ernest Ranglin as well as worldbeat popster Buster Poindexter. His command of roots blues, funk and soul music has found Bob playing and recording with Grammy winning guitarist Brian Stoltz (Neville Brothers, Funky Meters) and local legends such as Groove Thangs, Shack Daddys, Raiford Starke and Native-American singer/songwriter Chief Jim Billie. As a writer and producer, he has composed everything from salsa to string quartet, for TV shows like Fresh Prince and Saturday Night Live and major movies such as Sex In The City 2 and Things to Do In Denver When You're Dead among others. He's played on cruise ships and in the circus, performed many a straight ahead jazz gig and does classic rock in a Rolling Stones tribute band. And, of course, on Sunday mornings he joins Live Hymnal for some cross-genre worship and general merrymaking. Bob Taylor is the definition of a musician's musician, and we are so lucky to have him on the Live Hymnal team!
