Bob Kasper grew up in Harrison, NJ, where he started writing songs with his cousin, Tim Borkowski, in their basement. After a very long layoff from music, being a father and working for a living, Bob was inspired by independent artists playing solo acts in small venues in New York City. Over the past few years, Bob Kasper had become a regular in the local singer-songwriter scene, performing at various venues in and around the state with his acoustic guitar. Bob said: “It was something that was missing in my life and I needed to fill that void. I felt it was time to get the acoustic guitar out and start working on new material while revising the old ones. Bob has played in several bands over the years, including Kikapoo Joy Juice in the 1990s, where he met drummer Rob Savoy, and his last band, The B Zero B Project, with his cousin Tim Borkowski.
