Bobby Dean Blackburn: The Soul of Rock ‘n Roll

$30 Advance / $35 Door

Featuring the work of Fats Domino, Little Richard and Wilson Pickett. Rare Appearance! Legendary Yonge Street icon and father of Toronto’s version of the Neville Brothers, Blackburn, a soul fraternity, come together in a rare match up of father and sons in song.

Bobby Dean Blackburn has been singing and playing the Blues, R&B and Rock ‘n’ Roll since the Mid – 1950’s, first with Bobby Dean and the Gems at Toronto’s Legendary Club Bluenote, and then after a boxing career, backing the exotic dancers on B3 organ and hosting a memorable Matinee Jam session at the Zanzibar Tavern during the 1960’s.
Unbelievably it wasn’t until 2010 that he released his first cd- “DON’T ASK…DON’T TELL” . Some things are well worth waiting for. Bobby Dean Blackburn took his time and got it right, enlisting his sons and their ultra-funky band BLACKBURN to back him on this generous collection of Classic Blues and First Rate Originals, including the down home “Kitchen Blues” a wonderful duet with Special Guest LIBERTY SILVER. It hasn’t always been an easy life, and during his 69 years Bobby Dean Blackburn has earned the right to sing the Blues
