This book is important, as it chronicles the Marin live music scene of the present and recent past.
Phil Lesh
Bob has the eye and instincts of the old masters who didn’t just point and shoot, but waited for the right image to present itself before lifting the camera.

Bob’s work moves you on a deeply emotional level.

Pete Sears
Bob really captures the personality and character of a person. He gets who that person is.
Bill Kreutzmann
How we love Marin County! It is beautiful, vibrant, and has an incredible musical history. The attraction for musicians harkens back to San Francisco and the culture that spilled over into Marin.
Donna Jean Godchaux-Mackay
Bob Minkin is a sharpshooter. He captures the precious moments perfectly. He’d make a good drummer…
Mickey Hart
On an artistic level, Bob Minkin has as good an eye as you’ll find out there. He has a sense of moment and fast reflexes. He also makes all the shows, so he gets the pix.
Bob Weir
Bob has a passion for music that has allowed him to, very much like myself, break into photography as a way to connect with the music. He is on a very short list of the hardest working music photographers in the Bay Area. He is constantly shooting, which is what a true photographer should be doing. Bob has a sixth sense for anticipating and capturing the moment, and that is what makes him one of the best in the business.
