Since the eighties Rob Kudyba has been paying his dues in clubs, bars and other venues throughout the Northeast. Guitarist/songwriter Rob Kudyba's rock outfit, The Bee Zoo, had turned a new corner in 1997 with the release of a collection of driving modern-rock tunes on the album, Boobalah. An electrifying presentation of guitar-driven sound, on the album we find Rob Kudyba teamed up with drummer Bryn Mutch, and David Chirico on bass and backing vocals. Some finesse musical assistance was also provided by Dingo Records recording artist, Daniel James, with additional bass tracks by Chad MacDonald. Dingo Records is a Boston-based outfit that has previously released two albums by Daniel James & the Breed. Rob Kudyba realized that he couldn't do everything himself, so he reached out to trusted friends who helped guide and inspire him through the entire process from writing, recording, mixing and producing the album. It was just too much to handle as one person. The release of Boobalah follows up Rob Kudyba's eponymous three-song 1996 cassette. The earlier collection created a buzz among southern New England media, generating airplay on several FM stations and garnering reviews in a number of publications.
