UCF jazz guitar instructor, Bobby Koelble, has been absent from Orlando for the last month to tour with the band Death to All, an all-star tribute to the work of legendary Orlando musician Chuck Schuldiner. “Koelble and Schuldiner, who passed away in 2001, were friends going back to high school. In short, he’s a natural fit to keep the fell torch burning for this particular era of Death,”¬†reports Orlando Weekly.¬†“The quartet were on the road from the beginning of March until last weekend on an intense coast-to-coast tour.”

Koelble spoke with Orlando Weekly about what this tour means to him and how he balances being a jazz instructor and playing death metal.
