The Bobby Smith Band ft. Danny Beirne – A native of the Midwest , Bobby Smith started playing Blues and rock-and-roll professionally in the early 1980’s. His first record, “Two Sides” was nominated for two Washington music association “Whammies”. Since that time Bobby has been playing a blend of what he considers American music, rock-and-roll, Blues, R&B, and Rockabilly- mostly on the East Coast and in Holland. In addition to solo and single band shows he has done shows with Roy Buchanon, Gatemouth Brown, Buddy Guy & Junior Wells, Elvin Bishop, Danny Gatton, and The Stray Cats. Bobby also performs solo acoustic shows in which he does Folk-Blues, by artists like Mississippi John Hurt, Norman Blake, Johnny Winter, and his own original material. The CD “Bay Boy Blues” is a sample of this material.
