Rob Hegel sings a sweet song about love

ROB HEGEL: ARTIST BIO
Rob's broad range of musical influences include an homage to Goffin and King, Lennon and McCartney, and Nilsson, a bow to Broadway’s Lerner and Lowe, and a nod to Arlen, Dylan, and Newman. This mixed bag of inspirations is reflected in Rob's diverse and unique writing style, so evident in the songs on MAKE IT MAGICAL and throughout hisRob Hegelcareer.
Whether it’s a disco smash for Sarah Dash, "SINNER MAN," his own cult classic RCA recording of "TOMMY, JUDY & ME," the witty "DO IT FOR OUR COUNTRY" featured in the movie GREASE 2, or the top twenty Air Supply hit, "JUST AS I AM," Rob has never written the same song twice. As a staff songwriter for Rock and Roll Hall of Fame legend, Don Kirshner, Rob wrote songs for several television projects including Norman Lear's "A Year At The Top" starring Mickey Rooney and Paul Shaffer, Alan Landsburg's "The Kids From C.A.P.E.R." starring John Lansing and Steve Bonino, and the theme songs for "Don Kirshner's Rock Concert" and "Stick Around" starring Andy Kaufman.
In his first novel, TUXEDO BOB, co-authored with his wife Susan, Rob combines his songwriting abilities with his quick wit and love for the 
English language to weave a tale of whimsy about a uniquely talented, impeccably dressed, and compulsively honest young songwriter’s adventures in the music business. In addition to TUXEDO BOB, Rob has written a musical thriller, "The Mirror Of Mister Moore," an action/detective screenplay, "All That Glitter," and a stage play, "and then what?"
Rob Hegel - Make It MagicalHe has released 3 CDs of his original songs; HEGEL 2 - displays, ROAD SIGNS, and his latest, MAKE IT MAGICAL. MAKE IT MAGICAL, co-produced by Robby Krieger (The Doors) and Harper Hug, is an 11-song CD showcasing Rob’s songwriting and vocal abilities, and features some of the finest musicians on the planet.

Piqued Jacks rock n roll #Flyah

Piqued Jacks describe their sound in their own words: “being able to speak without impediment; having sex in the most intense way possible; expressing ourselves 100%”. You have to hear it to experience it for yourself. Piqued Jacks are brave souls. Rising from a small village in Italy, they have methodically made their way from obscurity to Austin, the heart of the indie music scene, performing 2 showcases at SXSW 2013. Their powerful alliance and headstrong vision has resulted in rapid success and the positive flow of their career indicates a confident band gaining serious momentum. Back in 2006, the Piqued Jacks were anything but serious. They causally acquired the band name after someone drops a bass during rehearsal.
