Guitar and Lead Vocals

Bob Malaniak--Guitar and Lead Vocals

I’ll never forget the sounds the Tornado’s made on their 1962 hit “Telstar”...It was my first real recollection of music! Two years later, the Beatles arrived on February 9th, as I watched, glued to the black & white 21” tv and realized that my sandbox days were over. Bob has played professionally for more than 26 years now, forming Pipe Dreams in 2000, and has fronted and booked the band since, with an average of 50+ shows a year! What a blessing to be able to “Live the Dream” of performing regularly with a great band of friends and musicians, met on the road of life! Cheers
