Help Clifford Help Kids Benefiting American YouthWorks Bob Schneider
One of Austin’s most sought-after entertainers, Bob Schneider packs houses and sells out venues here at home and across the country. While on stage Schneider commands the room and has mastered the art of keeping his audience on their toes, never knowing what will come next. He dances to the tune of his own drum and the beat changes from album to album.
With the release of his latest album, Burden of Proof, Bob Schneider breaks new ground, exploring loss, lust, love, dark desires and skeptical optimism. “Some folks might think that I'm taking a big risk musically by getting away from the more easily accessible pop songs of the earlier records,” said Schneider. “But to me it seems like a natural progression that is more subconscious than conscious, really.” With Burden of Proof, Schneider delivers a much-heralded explosive addition to his already expansive artistic canon, a work of sophisticated craftsmanship and a wild ride to boot.
All proceeds from the show will benefit American YouthWorks, a non-profit, public charter high school and GED program with a focus on job skills training programs and service through community improvement projects. For 31 years, American YouthWorks has helped thousands of at-risk students earn their education and build successful lives. More at www.americanyouthworks.org.
