2016 Blues Blast Music Award Nominations Announced
Bob Margolin Recognized in Two Categories

Congratulations to Bob Margolin on his two nominations for the 2016 Blues Blast Music Award.  Traditional Blues Album - My Road and Male Blues Artist. 

A Message From Bob

Please consider voting for me, I’ve been nominated for 2 Blues Blast Magazine Awards: Best Traditional Album of the Year for My Road, and Best Male Blues Artist. At a time of my life where I could keep playing the original music I’ve made on my past albums or just aim to honor my Muddy Waters credentials, I gave everything I have and am to make my best music ever now. I try to prove it on my album and on the bandstand. The reviews, airplay, sales, and now the Blues Blast recognition are gratifying. I want to give you everything I have and everything I am.
Ride with me on My Road.

Bob Margolin to Feature Special Guest Laura Chavez
It will be my pleasure to feature special guest Laura Chavez on my show at Ram’s Head On Stage in Annapolis, Maryland on July 7 and Capitol Ale House Music Hall in Richmond, Virginia on July 8. I will have my band, Tad Walters and Chuck Cotton with me and we’ll be doing songs from my new album, My Road. And Laura Chavez is one of the finest Blues and Swing guitarists on today’s scene. She made her reputation playing 8 years with the recently-departed Candye Kane. I can’t wait to see where our guitars will take us. Please join us.

Steady Rollin’ Records/VizzTone Label Group Releases Bob Margolin’s MY ROAD
Bob Margolin My RoadMY ROAD brings a fresh focus for Margolin - both musically and lyrically:

"MY ROAD reveals who I am today, musically and very personally. Each song takes a surprising turn from the others and my previous music. This breakthrough for me is informed by fifty years on bandstands, my Blues music heritage and credentials, and the drive to survive and thrive in today’s pressurized world. MY ROAD is my ride through modern challenges, the ironies and lessons of aging, achieving true love, mourning, my band’s distinctive signature sound, a childhood epiphany, my seven years in Muddy Waters’ band, and exploring the darkest sides of life with friends who have been there.”
