This month, we are pleased to present information on the Saturday night entertainment:
Bobby Blackmon!
Feeling the Blues?

Join FFEDA at our 50 Years with FFEDA Celebration Dinner on Saturday night, June 22nd and let Bobby Blackmon croon those blues away!
Bobby Blackmon is an entertainer with a talent for contemporary Southern soul, blues and classic R&B. Bobby's career began in the Southwest in the small town of Athens, Texas. He played in many house bands and worked as a sideman with many well known blues and R&B artists before making his home base in Central Florida. His band includes: Bobby (Guitar & Vocals), Jack Bumgarner (Keys), Jimmy Seay (Bass) and Terrance Jenkins (Drums).
Blackmon gained many new fans when he was a co-headliner with Buddy Guy at the House of Blues-Orlando in 2006. In May 2010, he opened for the legendary BB King in Orlando. Bobby's band performed at the BB King's Club in Orlando two nights a week from 2008-2012.   In March 2013, he opened for the Robert Randolph Band at the City of Orlando's Blues & BBQ event.
Bobby has shared the stage with many other blues artists at festivals and comes from a long line of polished blues guitarists from Texas.  His band is the premier choice in Central Florida for private parties, festivals and nightclubs.
Bobby is based out of Leesburg where his fans gather each year to catch his band at the annual Mardi Gras & Bikefest. Check out his website at www.myspace.com/beautifulbobbyblackmon and hear songs from his 3 CDs.
You can also hear his most recent CD, Yeah Baby-Chillin With The Blues which is a mixture of downhome to southern soul blues at www.cdbaby.com/cd/beautifulbobbyblackmon. Bobby's CD was picked as a Pick To Click on satellite XM/ Sirius BB King's Bluesville radio show. His music is played on numerous blues stations throughout the USA. His band also has numerous live performances videos on www.youtube.com.
