I am a solo guitarist/singer with over 35 years of experience performing in Hotels, Restaurants, Bars, Cocktail Lounges, and Private Homes. I play a wide array of styles and types of music from Oldies to Rock, R&B to Country, Ballads to American Standards.
I am available to perform at any and all private parties, birthday parties, weddings, anniveraries, and special events.
I called Bobby John last week on a very short notice since my brother's Interment date was changed due to my daughter's earlier arrival from Northern CA. I gave Bobby John a list of songs that my brother had liked He not only performed these but added some more classical tunes.-His performance was beyond expectation and I got the compliments from the attendees that he deserves to get at a solemn memorial service like the one we had - I highly recommend Bobby John for his musical talent and his great performance that we observed at our service- Thank you for making the event more joyful as I had imagined !
Response from Bobby John:
Thank you so much Tom...I'm glad I was able to contribute and fulfill your requests for the songs honoring your dear brother. May he rest in peace.
He was perfect for our event. He played and sang lovely music for my mother's memorial.
Response from Bobby John:
Thank you Christina...I really appreciate your testimonial...Call me if you ever need me again....
We had very good music with Bobby John as he customized our selection of Italian Music for a family event. The only improvement would be that a microphone (wireless) should have been used for those in the middle and back area. Other than that, he is recommended for hire.
Bobby John sang at the Volunteer Appreciation Event which was themed "Breakfast at Tiffany's". He was wonderful. It was great background music while they had breakfast and mingled. They sang along to "Moon River" and everyone left happy. Thank you, Bobby John, for helping with this event and making it special for the volunteers.
Bobby John was a wonderful addition to our private backyard dinner party. The theme was Latin Chic and he fit in perfectly with a performance including Spanish guitar music and light vocals. He was willing to learn new music for the event and even dressed up! Additionally, he was willing to meet me before to discuss the event and give me a demo. Everyone enjoyed the music and appreciated how he elevated the atmosphere. I would definitely use him again.
A gentleman and a supreme artist. A time of grief is hard on many. He was committed to our family and friends when we needed it the most. I would recommend him to any venue. He made such a sad time comforting, I could only imagine his talent in a happier situation. Thank you Bobby, and God bless you for all you have done.
Bobby John was wonderful to work with and put on an a wonderful performance.
Response from Bobby John:
Thank you, Michelle. I was glad to have been a part of your event. I hope I can again be of service to you in the future. ..
wonderful music at the night club -- we enjoyed the music and conversation. I would do it again any time.
What to Expect
I am a true professional. I am very conscientious, punctual, prepared, and friendly. If a client has a certain song request, I learn the song and perform it to the best of my ability. I do not abuse my break time. The performance always come first.
I currently perform at many local nightclubs, restaurants, and hotels; not to mention private parties and events and also at select assisted living facilities.
I have been playing music all my life. I started out playing the accordion when I was 5 years old and took up the guitar when I was 12. My very first gig was a neighbors kid's birthday party. We got paid $5.00 each. There were 6 of us. Wow. We were rich. I fell in love with playing music right then and there.
I got to the point where our band got to be so good that we were hired to back up Dobie Gray ("The In Crowd"), The Drifters ("There Goes My Baby", "Up On The Roof", "Under The Boardwalk"), perform at the Teenage Fair in Hollywood, perform at The Teenbeat Club in Las Vegas, Nevada (every summer for three years), open for "The Ike and Tina Revue" at Pierce College, and many other memorable gigs.
I decided to go it alone and performed steadily ever since in many nightclubs and restaurants in and around Orange and L.A. Counties. I have had the great opportunity to play with many other musicians and singers through the years as a duo, a trio, and as a 4 piece. I still perform with others. Samples are uploaded here on GigSalad.

The only thing I require is being set up close to an electrical outlet..
