Bobby Rush is an American music icon, a legendary showman, a King of the Chitlin Circuit, and perhaps the most vital living Southern musician to have started his career on the Chicago blues scene in the 1950s. Rush is not your typical octogenarian. At age 84, he exudes the energy of a 20-year-old, and is on the road for over 200 dates a year. His hectic tour schedule has earned him the affectionate title “King of the Chitlin’ Circuit,” by Rolling Stone Magazine. Rush has traveled the globe and has performed in such faraway places as Japan and Beirut. In 2007, he earned the distinction of being the first blues artist to play at the Great Wall of China. His renowned stage act features his famed shake dancers, who personify his funky blues and the ribald humor that he has cultivated during the course of his storied career. A BLUES LEGEND!
