Sound Advice: Bob Reuter's Alley Ghost at Kudzu's


Bob Reuter
  • Bob Reuter
From a Memphian frame of reference, Bob Reuter was something akin to Don Perry and Jack Oblivian having a baby. Reuter was a St. Louis-based musician and photographer who epitomized and chronicled his city’s underground art scene. He had a radio show and played gigs with his band Alley Ghost.

Reuter died after falling down an elevator shaft during the construction of his recording studio in 2013. It is a testament to his influence that his band has continued to play his music. They will headline a fantastic roughhouse of a bill that includes Memphis’ Richard James as well as James Godwin’s project James and the Ultrasounds at Kudzu’s on Wednesday, August 6th.
