Songwriter of the week: Barefoot Bob

Bob Alexander

Barefoot Bob: songwriter, performer, KTUH radio show host, facilitator of Hank's songwriter's showcase on Saturday nights, organizer of “The Oahu Songwriter’s Group”, and humanitarian relief contractor can always be found strumming lively on his acoustic guitar while brightly singing fun quips and upbeat tunes.

His quirky catch phrases and lively lyrics are akin to those of the Barenaked Ladies (Barenaked Ladies Are Me, Sep 12, 2006) and a sound similar to Hootie and the Blowfish (Looking For Lucky, Aug 09, 2005). He performs with a few guitar effects, a vocoder and a whole lot of spunk. Lively tunes such as “Liquor Store Love Song”, “Can I Pump Yours?” and “8-0-8 State” are sure to bring on uncontrollable toe tapping and amused chuckles.

Bob is a one man show in all that he does. With just a Harley Davidson, a backpack, and a Guitar to his name, he has gained much respect on the island as a local music scene organizer. Saturdays he hosts KTUH’s Songwriters Showcase spot from 12:00 noon to 3:00 pm 90.3 FM live at He also organizes a songwriters in the round showcase with artists who have been featured on his radio spot to perform at Ward’s Rafters.

You can find Barefoot's music and performance schedule on his myspace.
