ABOUT

Bobby Cole has returned to music, his self-diagnosed "vice of choice". Now, once again in showmanship form, he is looking for a new stage home on the Front Range.
Born and raised in the Deep South, Bobby honed his musical skills playing Southern Rock, Memphis Blues, and R&B. His preference of percussive Hammond organ performance style was heavily influenced by Rod Richardson (Duke Ellington Band) and R&B great, Clarence Carter. Vocal influences came from talents as diverse as Ronnie Hammond, David Clayton Thomas, and Lou Rawls. As a touring keyboardist, Bobby and his road band were familiar sights for national concert audiences "back in the day"; opening for legendary R&B headliners The Drifters, The Coasters, Rufus and Chaka Kahn, Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes, The Syndicate, and Exile.
