"You've Never Had This Much FUN With A Lawyer"
BOB NOONE: Lawyer - Singer - Songwriter
Attorney Bob Noone finds nothing unusual in the progression of his career. It began in the seminary, studying seven years for the priesthood.
He left the seminary armed with a philosophy degree and the ability to strum a mean guitar. Graduating "magna cum lucky" Noone discovered few employment opportunities for a philosopher. Armed with a guitar and a sense of humor, he made a seque into the bar music scene in the 70's. "I got booked in a cat house for several months. I learned a lot about life after that," he jokes.
Post-bordello and a few hundred gigs later he decided to become a lawyer, but never forsook the gift of using music to make people laugh. Since 1980, Attorney Noone has been satirizing the legal profession with songs about the mind altering antics of law school, tacky TV advertisements and the "ethically challenged" lawyer.
While he revels in the outrageous, he maintains an active law practice by day, representing clients from all walks of life. However, when he leaves his law office in Logan, WV, it is not unusual for him to "hit the road" headed for a judicial conference at Harrah's Casino in Lake Tahoe, a convention in the Virgin Islands or a state bar gathering in Grand Forks, North Dakota. At that point he loves nothing better than trading in the courtroom for a stage, where he dons a guitar and combines the two things he loves most, law and music, taking the audience on a journey into the lighter side of law. Most agree that they have never had this much FUN with a lawyer.
Noone and his back-up band, "The Well Hung Jury," perform such tunes as "A.C.L.U." which is a parody (YMCA) about the numerous religion and state lawsuits in the news, as well as parodies regarding current Political and Wall Street events. His live show now features songs from his third album, "Chicken Suit for the Lawyer's Soul." Noting the satirical wit of Bob Noone putting current topics to music, Kay Michael of the Charleston Gazette commented, "Move over Tom Lehrer . . ." Noone puts all sacred cows out to pasture as he enables his audience to laugh at their legal experiences.
What began as law school performances over two decades ago has evolved into featured entertainment at conventions and corporate gatherings across the country. Noone has performed his distinctive brand of humor to audiences ranging from Supreme Court justices to family physicians, insurance executives to senators.
Known as "The Perry Mason of Parody," Bob Noone brings to his performance the perspective of someone immersed in the practice of law, but you don't have to be a legal eagle to enjoy him. Those who own his CDs or have seen his live show agree "You've Never Had This Much FUN with a Lawyer!"
