BOB HINKLE: Peaks & Valleys: A Life in Music Fri Jan 12th 2018 at 8pm

$10 in advance

$12 at the door

I'm regularly asked about my long and checkered past in the music/entertainment industry. So occasionally I try and crank up the old brain and put together an evening full of stories (almost all of them true) and songs that fit with the stories in one way or another. Well, I'm doing it again. This Friday, Jan.12 at 8 PM. Where? Do you really have to ask? White Horse Black Mountain, of course. I hope to go down a different road or two from previous versions, maybe embarrass a few music denizens who have thus far remained unscathed.
----Bob Hinkle

Bob Hinkle began his career as a performer while in college at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. He was a member of a trio called The Good Earth and when he and his bandmates graduated they headed straight to New York where a recording contract awaited them with the DynoVoice label. DynoVoice released several recordings of The Good Earth including How Deep Is The Ocean, I Can See A Light, A Funny Thing Happened (Anytime), Must I Really Go Thru This Again, There's More Than One Road To Philadelphia and others.

After a couple years of touring and recording with The Good Earth including serving as the backup band for Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels, Bob released a solo recording of his own entitled Ollie Mogus.   For the next fifteen plus years, Bob Hinkle and Jeb Hart successfully managed the careers of leading pop music starts including: The J. Geils Band, Tom Chapin, Manfred Mann, Naked Eyes, Patti Lupone, Etta James and others.  

Seven years ago Bob returned to the WNC mountains to open White Horse Black Mountain.
