Bobby Radcliff
Bobby Radcliff
Bobby Radcliff began playing guitar at the age of 12 in Chevy Chase Maryland, after hearing the legendary Magic Sam perform live at the 1969 Ann Arbor Blues Festival. Bobby was so inspired by Magic Sam’s performance that he took it upon himself to venture off to Chicago to meet his newfound guitar idol. Bobby found Magic Sam in Cook County Hospital after Sam had suffered a major heart attack. After Sam recovered, he invited Bobby back to his home at 1615 South Harding Street, in the heart of Chicago’s West Side, where he and his family resided. Sam introduced Bobby to the West Side Chicago Blues scene at such venues as The Alex Club and the L & A Lounge.

Bobby spent the first half of the 1970’s performing in Washington DC with his own band. Members of his band included many of the great Washington DC players; Steve Shaw, Victor Spano, Dave Walker, Dick Heintze, Robbie Magruder and Danny Gatton. Bobby recorded his first 45 RPM single in 1974 on the Aladin Label.

In 1977, Bobby moved to New York City and became one of the house musicians at the Lone Star Café working with Kinky Friedman, Bernard Purdie, and the original Blues Brothers, featuring John Belushi and Roomful Of Blues. In 1984, Bobby recorded “Early In the Morning”, his first 33 RPM album.

In 1988, Bobby signed with Black Top Records, of which he recorded five albums; Dresses Too Short, Universal Blues, There’s A Cold Grave In Your Way, Live At The Rynborn and Live At Tipitina’s.

In 2005, Bobby recorded Natural Ball with producer Bill Bowman on the Rollo Label.
Bobby currently resides in New York City Freaking Me Out! (Krellno Records) released in 2011, and THROUGH THE YEARS VOLUME 1: (2017)
