2016 was a fantastic year for R-19.
Thank you all. 2017 is a brand new year and we are looking forward to rockin it out once again.
Ok apparently I have to get a new secretary
because obviously I am still doing a horrible job at it. A whole lot has happened since I last updated this part of the site. Unfortunately
Adam Netto has decided to move on to greener pastures. Adam added a tremendous amount of both talent and fun to R-19. his
marvelous vocals and astounding guitar playing will be missed by the band members as well as all the R-19 fans. thank you
Adam for the time you gave us and good luck with all of your future endeavors.
Now I would like to introduce the current and a new member of the
R-19 Family. I (Lin) am still hanging in there since the beginning. If it weren’t for all the great R-19 fans I probably
wouldn’t have made it this long. I love all the fans and thank every one of you. The next longest standing member is
Rob Booth on Bass guitar and vocals. As you all should know by now Rob has been with R-19 for a while now and adds a
lot to the music and entertainment value of the band. Next on the hit parade is Jeff Wisner on the drums (no vocals, he doesn’t
think he can sing). Jeff has been with the band for quite some time now and as you all know has been pounding out
the beats that keep us going. Last but not least our newest member of R-19. I would like to welcome Tom Booth to
the family. Tom has been a guitar player and singer in the Watertown and surrounding area for many many years in many
different excellent bands. Tom is an outstanding guitar player and has some serious pipes for vocals. He has already
added several songs to our set list and will only grow from there. I look forward to many years of musical enjoyment with
Rob, Jeff, and Tom.
please forgive my secretary (me) for slacking. Most of all come out and welcome Tom and say hi to the rest of us. I’m
sure you will not be disappointed.
all the R-19 fans out there. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. It’s all about the fans, without you we would be nothing. Let’s
keep the R-19 party train rolling. Be sure to check the events page at r19band.com for new info and gig dates.
