The group members are Bob & MaryAnn Albert and Rob & Cindy Thiele. "It's a family affair". Each member of the group has their own unique musical style and are available for all types of public and private functions.
Bob learned how to sing harmony at the ripe old age of eleven, singing on the streets of Newark N.J. "Anywhere there was an echo". The first group he sang with was called The Four Gents, specializing in Doo Wop Music and Motown. Drafted in the Army in 1963 Bob entertained the troops in Korea with the Bayonet Chorale Productions. After his tour of duty he sang with a group called Now and Then singing acappella music in clubs throughout NJ. Bob and best friend Charlie Ball formed the group called Sound Investment where they had the pleasure of opening up for such groups as The Platters The Duprees and more. Now it's ...........................................TIME forTIMELESS
As a teenager, Maryann loved to sing and dance to her 45's and American Bandstand. She loved to go hear Bob sing with his former group Sound Investment in NJ. In Florida, she filled in with Bob in their friend's groups occasionally and opened for such acts as The Contours, The Supremes and The Platters at the Event Center in Punta Gorda. She became a member of Timeless when it formed. She loves to sing and entertain people and make them smile as they reminisce to our songs.
Rob’s love of and ear for the melodic started at age 10 while doing musical theatre. At the mature age of 13, he became part of a choir that toured Europe as “Singing Ambassadors" for the United States, performing at such notable places as the Hippodrome in London and Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. After college, he joined a television variety show in Cleveland, Ohio while also regularly appearing with a 40 piece big band orchestra and in theatre productions throughout the city. Rob first met his wife Cindy as a front man for the top forty cover band he started in his home town and again at their local community theatre. For the last 3 decades, Rob has put his family ahead of his personal singing interests. He and his bride sing together in church and now as empty nesters they feel fortunate to include Timeless as part of their harmonic life together.
Cindy started singing in the basement of her family home as a young girl to “oldies” 45 records that her mom’s friend had given to her. Later on, while a stay at home mom raising 4 children, she sang to and with her kids as well as in various church choirs including duets with her husband Rob in the church and at a local outdoor amphitheatre that draws thousands of visitors each year to their home town in Ohio. Bob and Maryann, in forming the Timeless group, had this goal in mind: to serve you, the audience, by singing songs that will bring back memories of a simpler time in life through the ageless tunes that are sung. In joining the group, Cindy hopes you sit back and enjoy the music, clap your hands, tap your feet, and get up and dance!
