Bob Hale

Bob brings with him to The Main Event Band a lifetime worth of performing experience packed into a relatively short number of years. Coming from a musical Detroit family, Bob began playing music at the age of 10, joined his first band at 13, became a full-time performer at 15, and earned his first record deal at the tender age of 18.

Upon moving to Kentucky, Bob found himself in high demand, performing with such Nashville artists as Gary Stewart, Johnny Paycheck, Don Cox, Julie Reeves, Matt Mason and Paul Pace. Bob has also shared the stage with such musical legends as Pattie Labelle, Kool & the Gang, and Hank Williams Jr. to name just a few.

Bob’s musical influences stretch across the entire musical map, but upon listening to him play, one can clearly hear James Jamerson, Bob Babbitt, and his personal hero, Rocco Prestia. Bob’s ability to jump from one musical genre to the next gives The Main Event Band a rare flexibility when selecting their set lists. Bob currently lives in Ayden, NC with his lovely wife Pam and their four dogs.
