Anyone who is touring with BW and singing the falsettos deserves his own thread here, so here’s Rob. Video from last night in NJ: https://youtu.be/zhIJschyKP4

Fits right in with the band.

Nice job by Rob. Any work on what happened to Mat Jardine and why he is apparently absent from this part of the tour?

I'm not sure what's gone on with Matt, but my guess is that he's just missing this last leg.

I've never been super familiar with Bonfiglio, beyond noticing that he has of course worked with Carnie/The Wilsons/Wilson Phillips and that orb (as has Matt Jardine). I wouldn't have assumed he would be a "falsetto guy." I've listened to a few YouTube clips from the beginning of the BW tour and he seems to sound just fine. I mean, I think Matt is by far the best guy they've had in that role so I hope he's coming back. But this seems like a fine fill-in (I would understand if they didn't try to phone up Eichenburger to fill in considering his seemingly abrupt jump to Mike's band a few years ago).

Obviously he's "worked" with Carnie, being her husband and all.

According to Al, Matt's taking time off to spend the holidays with his family.

Hence my "of course."

I'm aware he's Carnie's husband. Folks may be aware of only one or the other of the factoids that he's married to Carnie, and also regularly plays with Carnie in many if not most of the touring incarnations she goes out with.

And even being aware of both for decades now, I wasn't specifically aware that he would be a "falsetto" guy. He seems to be doing a solid (if not meeting Matt's admittedly high bar) job.

Like HeyJude & many BBs fans, I recognize the name, iirc he went along with California Saga band as guitarist yrs back. This is new to me that he sings as well, let alone falsetto.

Boy dislikes girl. The girl dislikes that boy. People dislike the boy AND girl. Question - WHO dislikes these people?

Eichenberg is so good. I think he's been the best "Brian" theyve ever had. I wonder if he moved to Mike and Bruce to make room for Matt Jardine joining his dad and Brian on the road.
