Bob Kuban is an American musician and bandleader. Best known for his 1966 #12 pop hit The Cheater, Kuban is honored in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's permanent exhibit on one-hit wonders.
Kuban was born in St. Louis, Missouri and was graduated from the St. Louis Institute of Music. He formed the group Bob Kuban and The In-Men, with Kuban as drummer and leader, in 1964. Bob Kuban and The In-Men was an eight-piece band with horns, which was somewhat of a throwback, as the British Invasion was then underway.
After The Cheater, Kuban never scored high on the pop charts again -- he had one other top-100 hit, The Teaser, which peaked at #70 -- but he remained a fixture on the St. Louis music scene for decades. Bob Kuban and The In-Men performed for opening ceremonies of Busch Memorial Stadium in St. Louis on May 10, 1966, and The Bob Kuban Brass performed before the last regular-season baseball game there on October 2, 2005.
