Dramatic make-up and boogie genius : Bobby Conn is back !

 In Tours

Is Bobby Conn his real name?

No. Bobby is a nickname he’s had since childhood, because he’s so cute and cuddly. His real name is Robert Robert Conn. Why two Roberts? Apparently both of his grandfathers were named Robert and his parents wanted to honor them equally.

How old is Bobby?

Sometimes he looks pretty young, but up close he’s all weird and creepy. Bobby was born on June 13th, 1967. Since 1998, Bobby has resorted to dramatic make-up and fanciful costumes to distract audiences from his fading youth. The ravages of time may have pitted and cracked his once boyish appearance, but there’s still a kindly twinkle in his eye, just like Santa Claus.

What’s Bobby’s ethnicity?

He’s 110% pure entertainer, with all the rich cultural heritage that implies.

How good is he ?

Very excellent.

How can listen to his tracks ?

His MySpace is bit fucked up for now but here are some useful links :

Live album streaming
‘The Golden Age’ streaming
‘Never Get Ahead’ for Chic-a-go-go (TV)
