The singer, instrumentalist, entertainer and bandleader is recognized today as one of the most diverse, dynamic and elite live band-cover-and-dance entertainment service providers across America. With his melodious raspy tenor voice, he swoons audiences with emotion-packed r&b, soul, funk, jazz, pop, standards, Motown, top 40, inspirational to gospel cover renditions. He ‘plays’ the audience —no set list, just live and engaging cover and dance entertainment. Bobby J comments: “A true star is one who can live through adversity and then sing through that same adversity. Every musical experience is a personal one to which I assign meaning and emotion. When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, 'I used everything you gave me'”.
