The Bull, a percussionist of
extraordinary class, not the loud
boom-boom  type  

but a player of his Geranium-pot drum
and an ordinary washboard, used for
laundry.  His rhythm of the board with all
of its bells and whistles along with his
comic ability make him a great sidekick
for the Professor and produce a toe-
tapping all-round enjoyable experience.  
The Bull's hometown was the farming
community of Ashley, Ohio. He now
resides in Tennessee…
The pair met while attending
Marietta (Ohio) College and
graduated in the class of 2012 --
Professor with a chemistry
degree and Bull with a degree in
Art. Having discovered their
similar taste in music they
decided to seek a career in the
music industry.

Professor had been introduced
to Jennifer and Rod Harris,
owners of jenn-rod artist
directions, an artist management
company based in TN. He invited
them to a showcase in Marietta
which led to a management-
development deal. Harris did not
like the stage name the duo was
using and advised them to
change it. Harris came up with
the name, “Professor and The
Bull”…Professor was a know-it-
all, hence became Professor…
Harris dubbed the other “Antonio
the Bull”… hence “Professor and
The Bull”!
“Professor and The Bull” are
said to be, “Old souls in young
energetic bodies”!  They perform
a mixture of Blues, Rock, R&B,
Country, Pop, and Bluegrass
with Soul laced throughout. Their
unique  styling mesmerizes the
young, old and indifferent...
“Professor and the Bull” will take
you on a musical road trip of your
lifetime, featuring originals with
hit covers from the 1920’s up-
until today!   
PROFESSOR’S  unique vocal
qualities on cover tunes and his
smooth guitar styling

plus a covey of great original songs
backed with a hot harmonica along with
his kool kazoo horn, mesmerize the
young, old and indifferent...

“Professor and The Bull” have fun at
what they do! Professor's hometown
was the Riverboat City of Marietta,
Ohio. He now resides in Tennessee…
unique style and sounds are pure  “American”!  
Tennessee Student Kyle Hemsher
“I like the Professor and the Bull because they are easy to listen to.  My brain likes the way the instruments and
singing go together.  Plus, they’re really cool and give me signed posters.  They like kids!”   Kyle

“Professor and the Bull are very professional  classy performers AND young men.  Not only do they arrive early to
set up for performances, they genuinely interact with the audience during the show and afterwards. Their one-of-a-
kind show is refreshing and delights people of all ages.”
Kathy Dumont, Owner Commodore Hotel / Cafe

“Professor and The Bull” are very entertaining clean-cut young men and extremely easy to work with.  We had the
pleasure to book them in to our University for a student assembly. They gave an excellent hour performance with a
variety of different music genres; after the performance they came down in front of the stage and interacted with
the students. We had an outstanding event and plan to have them back next fall.”
