Bob Gentile

Member at Large

Bob has practiced his musical talent in myriad ways: educated at Berklee College of Music, owned two music stores near Boston, performed up and down the Atlantic coast, featured in at least five local bands (at last count) as The Bassman, electric and upright — and now gives lessons, too.

His other career is steeped in a different not-for-profit world, as director of a successful education and recreation center in New York. Adept at securing grants, donor funding, and leveraged relationships, in addition to full-time management, Bob retired after 30 years running the camp, moved to Southport, and never missed a beat.

Up Your Arts is thrilled to have his energy, proficiency, and brilliant sense of direction for having found us.
