Bobby Parker, a blues legend

1950's

During the 50's Bobby started out by working with the doo-wop group Otis Williams and the Charms. He played lead guitar with Bo Diddley, toured with Paul Williams, Sam Cooke, Jackie Wilson, Laverne Baker, Clyde McPhatter, and the Everly Brothers. He also toured with Chuck Berry, Buddy Holly and Little Richard in late '50s. In 1958 while working with Paul ""Hucklebuck"" Williams and playing at the Apollo in Harlem, he wrote and recorded ""Blues Get Off My Shoulder"" (recorded on Vee-Jay label).
1960's
In 1961, Bobby relocated to Washington DC and began appearing at all the major clubs in DC. He recorded ""Watch Your Step"" (V-Tone label) in 1961 which became a regional hit and was later covered by Spencer Davis Group, Dr. Feelgood and Santana. ""Watch Your Step"" became a hit on British and US R & B charts. In 1968, he toured England and recorded ""It's Hard to be Fair"" for the Blue Horizon label.
1970'S-80's
The 70s and 80s found Bobby performing heavily in the Washington DC area and he became a key figure in the city's blues scene.

1990's
In 1993, Bobby Parker headlined the Jersey Shore Jazz and Blues Festival. He recorded his first album, ""Bent Out of Shape"" for the Black Top label. In 1995 it was joined by his second album ""Shine Me Up"" also on the Black Top label (distributed by Rounder). Bobby continues to play weekly in DC clubs and has developed a following of both old and new blues fans. His powerful guitar licks and superb songwriting make him one of the most exciting artists around today!

2000+
Bobby's show continues to rock the new century. He performs frequently in the Washington DC area and on tours around the world. His new tunes, soon to be released are dynamite!

""Bobby Parker is one of the most exciting performers in modern blues.""
