“Horny Cat” by Bob Fantone
Hi! Let me introduce myself. My name is Bob Fantone. I am the composer / musician (accordion) of “Horny Cat.” I started my musical adventure when I was twelve years old. While shopping in downtown Long Beach, California, my mother and I stopped in front of a music store. There, in the window, was a 12 bass accordion. Seeing this instrument instantly brought me back to memories of my grandparents’ living room, where I first heard an accordion on their old upright radio-phonograph player. We proceeded to walk into the music store where my mother signed me up for accordion lessons.
From my first lesson in 1948, I was totally committed to my musical studies and enjoyed every aspect of my music education. My joy for music saw me through seven years of formal lessons. Some of my musical and lifetime accomplishments are:
1955 – The accordion band I was in, “The Mello Accordions,” participated in a national competition in Chicago. We tied for first place with our rendition of “A Night on Bald Mountain” by Modest Mussorgsky (1839 – 1881).
1956 – I won 3rd Place in the senior division at the “Western Accordion Festival.” I played “Fantasy Impromptu” by Frederic Chopin (1810 – 1849).
1957 – I joined the Long Beach City College Jazz Band and took harmony courses.
1959 – I married my wonderful wife, Virginia. (I met her at the Music Center Accordion School where I was studying.)
1961 – Present – Along with my wife, I raised two great sons and two beautiful daughters.
My unique and original song, “Horny Cat”, has been a family effort. I composed the music and played the accordion on the recording. My daughter, Marisa Neppl, and her son, Ben Neppl, did the vocals. And Finally, the lyrics to “Horny Cat” were written by Marisa, Sarah, and Ben Neppl.
In closing, I’d like to say, “Don’t ever give up on your dreams.” I hope you enjoy my song “Horny Cat.” It brings me great happiness to share it with you.
