The name presented itself because guitarist/songwriter Bob Rasero made his living in the building trades. Hey, it could have been The Carpenters, but he’s not Richard...he’s Bob.
Just like a well-constructed vintage home with good bones, this band has seen a lot of living and their seven CDs of original music reflect that. The Renovators love nothing more than developing a song idea and exercising their collaborative muscle. The resulting lyrics and music are fun, funky, topical, reminiscent, but more importantly, superb and well-crafted tunes. The grooves come from everywhere...where ever the band has been, who they’ve met, what they heard, what they’ve eaten and even the air they’ve breathed. Songs about the power of love...the power of money, asking for truth, going to work and coming home to the girl you thought you knew. The styles are ubiquitous....rootsy, blues, soul, swing, country, rhumba, funk...whatever makes the song happen.
From 1996 to present day The Renovators have been producing original music that has been considered by Lou Marini/Blues Brothers Band and featured on movie sound tracks. Bob & his band have opened for musical celebrities such as Keb Mo, Marcia Ball, Soul Live and they have performed regularly in area concert venues and clubs across Maine and New York. Currently he and The Renovators are working on producing a live CD that they expect to have available for the April show. You owe it to yourself to come listen to this seasoned band and we’re willing to bet you’ll go home humming a few Renovators tunes.
