Legendary Mississippi Blues man BOBBY RUSH www.bobbyrushbluesman.com - who just won the 2017 Grammy Award for Best Traditional Blues Album (he’s been nominated 4 times in the past) – is coming to play THE STATION MUSIC HALL in Sarnia, Ontario August 12th, 2017.
Rush has also won 10 Blues Music Awards (and been nominated 44 times!) over his long career. He sits in the Blues and Rhythm & Blues Halls of Fame and has played with many of the Blues greats including Elmore James, Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Jimmy Reed, B.B. King, Bobby Blue Bland and Etta James – all of whom are now departed. Bobby is one of the last original Bluesmen still performing. His music is a unique blend of Blues, Soul, R&B, Funk and even a little Rap and his LIVE shows are legendary – it’s hard to believe that he’s 83 years old when you hear him sing and watch him move around on stage! Bobby will be backed by his full 8 piece band for this show including two great female dancers. Opening act is ROBB SHARP & LIT’L CHICAGO – Sarnia’s most popular Blues band. Here’s a YOU TUBE of one of Bobby’s shows to give you an idea. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D1xGtnfv7GM
