Add to Calendar
Announcing the release of his seventh studio album since 2011, Bobby's new self-titled release has 9 fresh tracks, including 7 originals and 2 covers. built off years of touring internationally, opening for artists like Jimmie Vaughan, Samantha Fish, Marcus King & Carolyn Wonderland, he has solidified his place as a premier blues-rock performer, as well as a strong songwriter, vocalist / bandleader. he has taken the wheel in producing this album, and he is proud of the product produced.
He recently won a Wammie award (Washington Area Music Association) for best blues album, and although there are strong overtones of the blues in his writing, he sees himself now as a singer-songwriter, with a loud amp, and a strong band. He will as easily spend an evening entertaining a small listening room with his acoustic guitars and his songs, and the next night, he will have the dance floor packed grooving to the same songs with his band.
