Bobby Long's Performances Stir the Soul

Oh, what a night! Wait isn't that a song? Yeah...sorry for the Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons reference, but it really sums up last night in L.A.

I flew in from Vegas to catch Bobby's gig last at the Hotel Cafe last night in Hollywood. After introducing myself to his manager, Phil "Sweet Lips" Taylor, I was taken back to meet Bobby Long himself. Both of them were so gracious and personable. Bobby is a very humble young man that truly appreciates this gift of being able to do what he loves. The fact that more and more people are enjoying his talent is just icing on the cake for him.

Bobby took the stage to a sold out crowd and certainly did not disappoint. His music and soulful lyrics are moving and his passion radiates. He wowed us with a great set including 'Left to Lie' which was recently released on iTunes, a new one called 'Two Years Old' and my personal favorite 'Dead and Done'. Bobby also proved himself to be quite the comedian as he engaged the audience. Unfortunately, some were a little more engaged than appropriate.

I was asked to assist with t-shirt and CD pre-order sales after the show. I'm not sure how much help I really was to the guys, but it was truly an honor. I want to thank my special friend - you know who you are - for trusting me enough to help out. ;o)

Although, I never got a picture of myself with Bobby (I know...Brainfart!), I do have some photos of him performing. Sorry they're so dark, flash photography wasn't allowed. Our very own Kelley's blog has her review and photos, as well.

And, as always, don't forget to stop by Bobby's MySpace page, listen to his music, have a look around and be sure to add him as a friend. Things may feel a bit like a runaway train for him right now, but this is only the beginning...we WILL see great things from him in the future.

The Twilight Sisterhood thanks Bobby for an amazing show, Phil Taylor for sharing this gem with us and the Hotel Cafe for a great venue!
