Bob Stacke PhD was the Director of Bands and Department Chair of Music at Augsburg University. Recently retired, he has pursued his passion in photography. 

The arts have always been an important part of Bob’s life. With his experience as a percussionist and music professor, it was natural for him to begin photographing bands, musicians and events. Bob’s photography and music have taken him all around the world, from Romania, Turkey and Western Europe to the Islands of the Caribbean including Cuba, Jamaica and Haiti. He has had several photography shows and was recently visual artist of the month at Palmer’s Bar in Minneapolis where his images of bands performing at Palmer’s were displayed.  

Bob currently lives in Mound, Minnesota, with his wife Mary and dog Sam. In addition to photography, he continues to perform as a musician in a wide variety of venues.
