Bob Simonello "Rollin' a 7" at the Magnolia Room

ROLLIN’A 7 is a musical coming-of-age adventure, a funny, touching, off-beat look at one man’s journey on a road less traveed: from a shy, Judy Garland-loving, parochial school-hating kid to outspoken, unpredictable, audacious, Judy Garland-loving man-child with a burning need to know what lies beneath the surface of things.

Featuring songs of Delbert McClinton, Craig Carnelia, Marilyn and Alan  Bergman, Michele LeGrand, Joe Sample, Gordon Jenkins, Joe Raposo, Rupert Holmes, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty and more.

Kristine Zbornik, Director

Jeff Harris, Musical Director/Pianist


Bob Simonello - After 45 years in the visual arts as a creative director/producer for Sesame Street (working closely with Joe Raposo, “Being Green”), and art director/producer for a TV network  (Time Warner Cable), Bob returned to singing in “Class Acts,” Barry Levitt’s Cabaret Series (2015) at Don’t Tell Mama. Since then he has been working with Marilyn Maye and David Friedman. With their guidance, Bob wrote and performed his first solo show, “Flight” in 2016 at Don’t Tell Mama.  In the mid 1960’s Bob was the lead singer of Monday’s Children , a folk-rock group discovered  and mentored by Peter Yarrow. They performed on college campuses, folk music festivals, and coffee houses, including the Bitter End , Gerdi’s Folk City, The Gaslight, The Backyard, and the Exit at Yale among other venues. They were heard on national radio and TV commercials recorded at Phil Ramones studio in NYC for Dancer, Fitzgerald Advertising agency. (Peter Yarrow, writer/producer; Milt Okun, musical director; National commercials included Esso Gasoline, River Brand Rice and products for Rivianna Foods.)  He has worked with pianists Jeff Harris, Paul Greenwood, Barry Levitt, Woody Regan, and others.  He’s performed and guest starred in countless shows and venues in New York City, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and the East Coast. Currently Bob works with Kristine Zbornik, who directed   “Rollin’ a 7” in the Fall 2018 at Don’t Tell Mama. Jeff Harris is musical director and pianist for the show, Steven Singer is on Drums and Scott Thornton is on Bass. He looks forward to performing Rollin’a 7 again Sunday, October 13, at 5pm at Don’t Tell Mama.
