Bobby Kyle Band this weekend at Delta Blue

LAKE PLACID – The Bobby Kyle Band will perform from 9 p.m. to midnight Friday and Saturday at Delta Blue at the Northwoods Inn.

Blunt and to the point, Bobby’s singular stylings resonate with maturity, talent and inspiration, bringing us a genesis of contemporary music that is characteristically all his own.

Bobby was backing up Bill Dicey by the late ’70s, and the pair later became a duo. In the early ’80s, Bobby joined the house band at the Stuffed Pepper, a Tampa Bay blues mecca. There he worked with luminaries James Peterson, Johnny shines, RafulNeal, Mary McClain Smith, and Tabby Thomas. In 1984, Handy Award winner Eddie Kirkland invited Bobby to join his band.

After six years with Eddie, Bobby joined the band of Grammy Award winner Johnny “Clyde” Copeland.

Bobby performed with this legendary Texas bluesman on major-label recordings and in concerts, festivals, and clubs worldwide until Johnny’s death in 1997.

Between touring dates with Eddie Kirkland and Johnny Copeland, Bobby took his solo act on the road, performing his own material at nightclubs, and festivals throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe.

Now performing with his own band, Bobby’s emotional, soulful voice rings true, and is forged with a raw distinctive quality all his own.
