If you’ve seen Bobby Long in concert before and are expecting his mellow, croony solo performance, then don’t fret. He still sings a handful of songs on his own, and it’s still just as intimate as it was a year or two ago. But the band - Mark Stepro, Chris Morrissey, and Rich Hinman - supply the perfect backdrop to Bobby’s already near-perfect songs. You won’t be disappointed.
Never mind his British upbringing, Bobby Long’s very American music was the perfect soundtrack to our trek across the Heartland. His music is both down-home Blues and edgey Rock; at times it’s thoughtful Folk, and at others it can be Country that would keep Johnny Cash’s toes tapping. Each performance, each night, was electric.
I may not be a rock star, but for one long weekend I lived like one. And I was exhausted afterward. Would I do it again? You bet. The open road, music blaring through the speakers, noisy bars filled with friendly faces – such is the life. And it’s just my luck that Bobby Long will be touring again my way in another month!
