Whether rocking to his own composition in the jazz scenes or presenting his unique interpretations of musical greats like Miles Davis, John Coltraine or Wes Montgomery, guitarist Bobby Lee Rodgers is staking out a legendary path with fans and critics alike.  His unique sound and stylings are garnering a growing popularity wherever he performs. 

 

Bobby brings a unique sound to his performance.  In part because he plays through a combination of Leslie Cabinet and vintage guitar amp which gives the beautiful sound of an organ and guitar together.  A stellar songwriter, vocalist and guitarist, he fuses rock, funk, jazz ,and blues into a magical musical tapestry.  He has performed with such great artists as Vassar Clements, Warren Haynes, Widespread Panic, George Porter, Jr. and the list goes on and on.  His new CD, “BLR”, was just released to rave reviews.  

 

Growing up with the guitar, Bobby went on to study classical and jazz guitar at the University of Georgia.  After college he located to Boston and became one of the youngest instructors of jazz studies with the prestigious Berklee College of Music at just 23.  While an accomplished teacher, it was performing that fed Bobby’s energy and soon, along with Col. Bruce Hampton, he became one of the founding members of the legendary southern band “The Code Talkers”.  Bobby began his solo career in 2009 at the Wanee Music Festival in Florida where he performed in front of 10,000 people.  He made such an impact on the audience that he was asked back in 2010 and again for the 2011 festival.  However, Bobby did not forget his jazz roots.  The Bobby Lee Rodgers Jazz Trio takes one back to the golden decade when jazz was the soul of the city.  Along with playing jazz originals, during performances he captures the sounds of the great artists of our time like Miles Davis, John Coltraine, Thelonious Monk and Wes Montgomery.  In summary, Bobby Lee Rodgers is a modern Great.
