OK, sure. In the past, Bobby has shared the stage with the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi, Lucinda Williams, Jakob Dylan, Southside Johnny, Gary U.S. Bonds, Richie Havens, Sam and Dave, the Ramones and l don't want to bore you, but the list could go on forever. He has even toured as the guitar player with eccentric genius Phil Spector's legendary Crystals. The truth is, though, that Bobby really can't stand name dropping.
And yeah, Bobby has played shows at all the coolest venues such as The Ed Sullivan Theatre and The Bitter End in New York City; The Roxy, The Rainbow Room and The House of Blues on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood; The Hard Rock Cafe in Pittsburgh and Orlando. He's also played many of the grand old theatres across the United Kingdom including the historic Astoria in London's West End, in front of 3,501 adoring Brits. This was the very same stage that Jimi Hendrix set his guitar on fire for the first time 38 years earlier. Again, the truth is, though, Bobby hates to brag.
On the other hand, if Bobby did like to blow his own horn, he might tell you that his songs are frequently used on TV and radio. Recently his "Shut up and Sing" was featured on Laura Ingraham's nationally syndicated radio show reaching millions of listeners on hundreds of stations across the country. And then there's ABC-TV's General Hospital on which you may have heard Bobby's "You Better Think Again" (off his last EP).
But of course, being that Bobby isn't the boastful type, he'll let Pete Feenstra, who just happens to be one of Great Britain's most well-respected music journalists/promoters say a few kind words, "This man has the words to express what thousands feel." Golly -- now ain't that a nice thing to say about a fella!
