Bob Mundy

Bob Mundy is a Native New Yorker, born in Queens and raised on Long Island. He's a self-trained singer who has been at it since day one. “I was the kind of kid who could imitate anything I heard and I heard it all from classical to Top 40, but I really loved good singing. I remember when I would go to my Grandparent’s house on Sundays, My Aunt would have her music on in the back of the house and I would sit on the floor outside her room and listen to Johnny Mathis, Andy Williams & Streisand to name a few. I’ve always joked that Barbara Streisand taught me how to sing!” Bob started studying piano at the age of 5 and wound up going all the way through music school, earning a BA in Piano Performance and a BS in Music Therapy from the State University of New York at Fredonia. “I never thought I’d become a professional singer because I got pigeon holed as a pianist but in my mid twenties I was playing piano for a variety show and was asked to step away from the piano and sing one number. That was all it took and I haven’t looked back since!”
Bob is also an accomplished Actor, a member of Actors Equity and SAG-AFTRA and has appeared in many theatrical TV & Film productions. Favorite roles have included Party Of One (San Francisco’s longest running original review at the time), Donny the Bandleader in Tony & Tina’s Wedding (San Francisco & Off-Broadway in NYC), Possibilities (Bob’s 1st One Man Show in NYC Off-Off Broadway) to name a few. On TV Bob’s been seen in Guilty or Innocent for The Discovery Channel, a short term Principle Role on Passions for NBC (Bob was killed in an Earthquake/Tsunami and then ran in flashbacks for 2 years…only in the Soaps!), The Bold & The Beautiful for CBS, Bones, Privileged and numerous commercials and print ads. Bob has several feature film roles lined up to shoot over the next few years and hopes that everything works out with the financing so they can come to a theater near you.
As for recording a Jazz record, “I have been a Jazz freak since the first time I heard it as a kid, big band music. I picked up Tenor Sax in High School and was desperate to play jazz piano & sax but could never seem to get it out through my fingers but with my voice, it was never a problem. I would listen to Ella Fitzgerald and imitate her scats and then make up my own. I’ve sung Rock, Pop and Broadway, but Jazz is a real passion!”
