The Renovators? 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. Read More »$12
