On May 12 & 13, 2001, we reunited
some of the people who have sung, played
and recorded with me over the past 25 years. There was a weekend of
events which included a reunion, rehearsals and a concert held
at the Rio Theatre in Santa Cruz. Click here

Saturday, May 12, the Bob Reid Reunion -- a gathering of former "kids" who sang
with Bob in classrooms, at school assemblies, on his recordings, at the
radio station, as well as parents and teachers. We sang, reminisced
about the old times, did some interviewing for a video documentary of Bob's
work, rehearsed for the
concert on Sunday, and just plain had a great time.
Sunday, May 13, the Bob Reid Reunion
Concert at the Rio. Joining Bob on stage were singers and musicians who
worked on his recordings and in concert, as well as the kids, past and
present, who have sung with Bob over the years.
Even if you couldn't make the reunion or the concert, we
still want to hear from you! If you are a former kid, parent, or teacher please
fill out our Reunion Contact Form, where
you can tell us what you remember and what you've been doing. We'll be
posting comments here on our web site for everyone to enjoy.
Bob Reid and Abracadab, 1985
We will be making a video documentary of
this event to include interviews with those who have something to share
about the value of my work in their lives. I have had many encounters
with people I first met as children (some of whom are now parents of
children in my classes) and realize that something important happened in
our time together. I would like to better understand this. I will use
the opportunity of the reunion concert to gather interviews with those
willing to share their experiences.
