Regal Tip artist and Niagara Falls native, Bobby Previte, was recognized on October 3 when he was inducted into the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame. Bobby’s versatility as a drummer is reflected in the unlikely array of leading “lights” with who he has worked, including John Adams, Terry Adams, Robert Altman, Johnny Copeland, Lejaren Hiller, Charlie Hunter, Lenny Kay, John Lurie, Sonny Sharrock, Michael Tilson-Thomas, Tom Waits, and Victoria Williams.  Pursuing his career, Previte moved to NYC in 1979, but his roots remain in Niagara Falls, NY.  As he stated when he signed on with Regal Tip last year…a Niagara Falls based company, “I feel like I’m coming home”.

 

The Buffalo Music Hall of Fame was founded by Rick and Marsha Falkowski in 1983 to recognize groups and individuals who have had a significant impact on the WNY music scene and/or achieved success in the music industry on a national and often an international scale.  Previous inductees include the Calato/ Regal Tip family along with RT artists Tom Hambridge, Gary Mallaber, Sandy Konikoff, Ted Reinhardt and Ron Rocco.  The list also includes such Western New York luminaries as Ani DiFranco, Rick James, Robert Moog, Spyro Gyra, Tommy Tedesco, The GooGoo Dolls and 10,000 Maniacs.

 Congratulations, Bobby and all of the honored 2013 inductees.
