About Bobby J
Bobby J is a singer and instrumentalist, recording artist, and bandleader.
Singing is his expressive art form, honing his craft right in front of his audience. Often compared to Jeffrey Osborne (LTD) and Charlie Wilson (Gap Band), he owns a personal stage presence.
Bobby J has toured with, performed alongside, or acted as curtain raiser for some of the best in the industry: Ali Ollie Woodson, Peabo Bryson, Michael Henderson, Bobby 'Blue' Bland, D. J. Rogers, Chuck Mangione, Patti Labelle, Margie Joseph, Ashford and Simpson, Kool and the Gang, the Drifters, the Dixie Cups, Pieces of a Dream, Usher, Raheem DeVaughn, Larry Graham, Air Supply, the Pointer Sisters, Gladys Knight, Billy Preston, Irma Thomas, Michael ‘Patches’ Stewart, Branford Marsalis, Rockin' Dopsie, Jr. and Aaron Neville and the Neville Brothers.
He is the recipient of the 2001 Gospel is Alive Award, a 2005 NOJHF performer, and a 2014 Small Business Revolution Documentary participant to list a few highlights.
His shows are emotion packed, and soul stirring with music that ranges from r&b, 50’s to 90’s standards, funk, soul, pop, jazz, Motown to top 40, spiced with gospel, inspirational and traditional New Orleans music.
He alternates his Stuff Like That Band’s line-up or instrumention to meet clients’ musical needs, but the sound remains the same. Instrumentation consists of some variation of bass and lead guitars, keyboards, drums, background singer(s), and oftentimes horns; but, whatever the configuration, he hits the stage with style and high energy.
He says, “The blessing in all of this, in an extremely difficult industry, is having the opportunity to provide so many diverse audiences with diverse entertainment, simply singing them to a happier space in time. Every musical experience is a personal one to which I assign meaning and emotion.” He continues, “When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I can say ‘I used all the talent you gave me’. But, before that time, I believe the best is still to come!”
Bobby J and his Stuff Like That Band are undeniably the exception, not the rule...a MUST experience.
