Profile Band / solo project from Syracuse, New York. Their style floats around the early Bon Jovi, Icon, Journey, of course, less accomplished. Songwriting isn’t stellar, not bad either, Bob’s vocals do the job and you can find some nice riffing and keyboard twirls. Indie production recorded between Dec ’86 / feb ’87, this is a hard to find collector’s item. Some time after, Wheeler would be the vocalist of Eklypse, another one album only-band rarity.

    This CD rocks!!! Bob is still singing around NY state. He has got a few more released CD’s since this one. I think the latest was released 3 years ago. Great stuff. His talent exceeds all of the unsigned bands Ive ever heard. As far as Im concerned he is one of the best.

  2. Bob, I was your bassist when opening for NY FLyers in 1987. You wouldnt happen to have any footage or pics of that would you? Im glad you are still at it. Ive been around but now working with a country band once a month. very light detail plus I have been writing for a few years. have just over 50 tunes recorded through a small tascam 8. hey! it works and is lots of fun opening the brain from time to time. hope things are well with you. take care. Kim

      Ron and Kim,

      Thanks for reaching out! I had no idea this website even existed until last night my girlfriend came across it by accident. Thanks so much for the support Ron. It’s well appreciated. Your right, I did come out with my last CD 3 years ago. And Kim, so great to hear from you. Glad to hear your still in the music scene and doing well. It’s been a long time. Unfortunately, I don’t think I have any footage of that project but I might. If I ever come across anything I can let you know. If you want to send me your email address, send it to boblwheeler@65@gmail.com. Tried to look you up on Facebook but no luck. Take care guys and thanks again. Keep in touch Bob
