Bobby, who grew up in the Cleveland area, earned his Bachelor of Music in Music Performance from Kent State University. He eventually moved to New York City and earned a Masters degree in Jazz Performance from the Manhattan School of Music. While in New York, Bobby studied with Joe Lovano, Bobby Watson, Dick Oatts, and Maria Schneider.

After living in New York City and gigging around town at places like the Vanguard, Smalls, and Birdland for four years, Bobby decided to move back to Cleveland with his family. He has dedicated himself to keeping jazz alive in Cleveland and his passion for jazz education has led him to serve as Director of Jazz Studies at Kent State University.

In addition to his work in jazz education, Bobby continues to expand his discography. His most recent recording is Short Stories (Origin Records, 2014) featuring Aaron Goldberg on the piano, which follows Way Of Being(Arabesque Records, 2013), Grass Roots Movement (Arabesque Records, 2011) and Modern Times (Arabesque Records, 2009). Modern Times featured Kenny Werner on piano and Sean Jones on trumpet. Bobby’s Unspoken Dialogue (Playscape Recordings, 2007), also featured Kenny Werner, as well as Jamey Haddad on drums, Ben Street on bass, and Paul Tynan on trumpet.

In addition to playing alto saxophone, Bobby also plays soprano saxophone, alto clarinet, flute, and is a composer, arranger, and jazz clinician.

Music has been an integral part of Dan Wilson's life since his beginnings in gospel music. Upon hearing a Wes Montgomery record in a relative's basement, Dan decided to pursue a career as a musician. Since then, he has spent more than a decade honing his craft.

Dan has been touring nationally and internationally with three-time Grammy nominated jazz organ legend, Joey DeFrancesco. Dan's composition, "Who Shot John" was featured on Joey's 2015 release, "Trip Mode." Dan received a Grammy nomination for work on "Project Freedom," by Joey Defrancesco & The People, released in 2017. Dan can also be heard on Van Morrison's "You're Driving Me Crazy," and "The Prophet Speaks." In April of 2017, Dan joined legendary bassist Christian Mcbride's "Tip City." In June of 2019, Dan recorded an album for Mack Avenue Records entitled "Vessels of Wood and Earth," which featured Jeff "Tain" Watts, Christian Sands, Marco Panascia, and Joy Brown. The album was released during the Fall of 2019.

In addition to touring with Joey DeFrancesco, he has enjoyed the honor of sharing the stage with many jazz greats including Eric Marienthal, Russell Malone, Les Mcann, Christian Mcbride, and Dave Stryker.

Dan also teaches jazz guitar and theory through private lessons and co-leads a group of world class musicians, called D.T.C, which features drummer David Throckmorton and Cliff Barnes.

Dan received his Bachelor's Degree in Music & Liberal Studies from Hiram College in 2006. His passion for Brazilian music led him to the city of Rio De Janeiro in 2007 to conduct research for his Masters Thesis which he defended successfully at Youngstown State University in 2009.
