He's Louisiana's own performing artist and self-taught drummer and singer, recognized as one of the most diverse, dynamic and elite entertainers across America. Bobby J was born and educated in New Orleans, Louisiana, attended Southern University at New Orleans, under the tutelage of renown saxophonist Kidd Jordan. . His parents were gospel singers thereby having a direct influence on Bobby's desire to pursue a music career. 

Early on, he pursued his interest in drumming. Older and once accomplished, he performed with locals Branford Marsalis, Cyril Neville, and Michael “Patches” Stewart (Al Jarreau), to name a few. Then came the pivotal point in his career: On a local gig, the club owner tore down Bobby's drums, handed him a vocal mic, lead him to center stage. And, the rest is history. By 1990 he established himself as an independent vocal artist, forming R&B band Stuff Like That to accompany him. And with untiring efforts to musically satisfy social as well as corporate audiences across the US and Canada, he remains unrivaled. 

 

He has serviced countless clients and has worked with many acclaimed artists in the music industry. In 2001, Bobby received the Jazz Foundation of America's Gospel is Alive Award. In 2005, by request, he performed on the R&B stage at the Jazz & Heritage Festival.
