Studio B Songs: Bob Sneider and Friends



SStudio B ngos is an exclusive digital series from News 8 WROC dedicated to both showcasing Rochester’s incredible musical talent and showcasing artists who come through our town for shows.

All music is recorded live, video captured live; all refined for a product that combines the electricity of a live performance and the refinement of a studio session.

For each episode, the artists are responsible for presenting two “A-sides” and two “B-sides”. A-sides are songs you know by the artist: whether it’s their signature song, their most promoted song, or the one with the most airtime. B-sides are tunes near and dear to the artist’s heart, but don’t always get the audience love they deserve. In this format, listeners can listen to favorites and learn deep cuts.

This episode features Bob Sneider, Rochester’s jazz ambassador. Bob has hosted the jam sessions at the Rochester International Jazz Festival since the beginning, plus he’s a core teacher for Eastman Community School, his charity work, and gigs around the city. He’s joined by his usual trio – Mike Melito and Danny Vitale – but still shares the spotlight when he can. Three great Eastman students joined him for two tracks, including his son, Ben.
