John 'blueshammer' Hammer: (KOWZ)
"There is NO DOUBT what so ever: Bobby is on the short list of the BEST players and performers in the world. The Smokin' in Steele show was simply amazing......Much love and respect!"
Bobby's music speaks for itself. What sets great new music apart from very good new music is a familiarity that speaks to the soul. You got that goin' on. I am really diggin' the new CD. Keep rockin' da house my friend!
Steve Jones (Crossroads Blues Society) For those who missed the show and have never seen Bobby Messano, he is the best guitar player you have never heard of...Undoubtedly the most underrated act I have seen in ages! Bobby is a guitar wizard!
Steven Koontz Killer evening last night in Charlotte ......hands down, Mr Bobby Messano is one of the best guitarists on the planet......put on a jawdropping performance at the P-Stone in Charlotte...will be there again in early March....go support Bobby and Steve and their shows.....legendary.....
Man, what a show! I was blessed to see Bobby here in Charlotte NC Saturday night awesome!! He is so down to earth and a great person, he even let me play his guitar ! God Bless you Bobby! Keep it going my friend!! signed Tall Guy in Charlotte NC!!!!
You are one of the greatest guitarists I've seen live. Considering I've seen Buddy Guy, B.B. King, Joe Walsh, to name just a few. When i heard "Get Up & Dance With The Blues" on "Live In Madison" I actually got up and danced. Felt like I was there!It was such a treat to see you very talented musicians at JM Randall's on Saturday. You, Bobby, Steve and Felipe were outstanding! Listened to "That's Why I Don't Sing the Blues" on my ride home and it is FABULOUS!
Charlie Richards: If I didn't know better, I would say it was Bobby Messano and not Jimmy Vaughn that taught Stevie Ray Vaughn how to play guitar and the blues! Bobby you rock!?
I want everyone to know how amazing this guy is live! I had the priviledge to see Bobby perform at a Blues Bar in Indiana and the turnout was super light. There couldn't have been more than 8 people in the crowd and I never saw Bobby miss a beat or lose enthusiasm. That is the mark of a true performer.
Bobby, I had to drop you a note after the concert at the BBC tonight and before I go to bed. I meant every word I said about your show tonight and what I said came straight from my heart. I would love to stay in touch and if possible get a chance to see you perform again. As I said, this was the best concert I have ever attended and I have
seen many being 62 years old. Thank you again for such a wonderful evening of music. Hal
Clair DeLune: (WUSC) Bobby, I reviewed your CD for airplay on Blues Moon Radio - and you will appear on it tonight... I absolutely LOVE the CD, your voice and your style! So glad we got in touch via FB.
Richard Flynn (TOWER RECORDS):I gotta tell you - you just made my weekend...Not even sure what to say...easy to say you deserve it but you are one of the hardest working cats out there.... Nice to see good things for good people...
Roger Mc Kelvey
An amazing dedication to your craft combined with an incredible gift of talent...
Joy Campo-Decker: "I was absolutely stunned at the incredible performance and master musicians I witnessed... Sat. evening. Bobby Messano was genuinely on top of his game! I have been lucky, over 30 years, to witness such legends as the Dead, the Boss, CSNY, BB King, Ramones, Phoebe Snow, Creedence, ZZ top, and many more- but ...I have to honestly say, Bobby Messano and his band were right up there with other legendary musicians that bring music to its purest and best levels ever! I was honored to have witnessed this..."
Reb Beach (WHITESNAKE) "Bobby has been my mentor since I was 19 years old...and he taught me how to play the blues." His playing has been a great inspiration to me through the years, and I am so happy that he has made such a fantastic record. This one is not to missed. The record is filled with great songs, and spot on, heartfelt playing from a little known master of the electric blues guitar."
Wow! Love Love Love your record!!!! Bravo Bobby!!
Gabby Parsons:(105.5 TRIPLE M) Bobby Messano plays with passion and flair. He's the real deal.
On my drive to work I could've listened to the news. Instead I kicked it to "That's Why I don't Sing the Blues." This Grammy nominated album is the most recent labor of love from pisano mio Bobby Messano . Buy it today..." Trust me, it'll be the best CD you've bought in a long time.
James Shinkle: Hey Bobby werent you offered a major record deal in the mid 1970s (Seymour Stein)I know Bobby's first big tour was opening for 'Kansas',,,,you had to be great musicians to open for 'Kansas' btw,,, Bobby could have taught SRV a lot at that... point in time.
Tim Hilbert: I was never a big fan of the Blues, that is until I saw Bobby Messano "Live In Madison"! I was thrilled when the performance was released on CD, so I can re-live that great day over and over - I am a fan for life!
Dawn Kleinfeldt:I first met Bobby and Steve at the Frequency this past summer (Already knew Joey from the Madison Music Foundry) where they came to perfrom with the students of the Foundry. My daughter had signed up to plays a Jonny Lang song... and she was lucky enough to be on stage with Bobby. Let's just say he has impressive guitar skills! And my daughter took a very special interest in Steve because she too is a bass player. She now has pink bass strings because Steve does! And Joey is a very impressive drummer! The biggest thing I noticed about this night was even though they stole the show, they were so humble and wonderful to the kids, they swayed to the music and genuinely wanted to be there. That is a class act in my book! So glad to have met you guys!!
Billy Hoffman: Hey Bobby, being a musician myself, the first thing that comes to my mind when I hear your playing is that you are a bad-ass, monster guitar player....plain and simple
Francis Parker: I watched B.M. in Jersey more than 37 years ago and he killed back then! GREAT PLAYER!!
Mike Sellers: Fantastic show. Anyone who wants to see a musician pour heart and soul into a performance needs to go see Bobby.
Michael Barone: Bobby can't help but Jam.. this Guy is Amazing People!!
Ernie Lodato: hey buddie you are just plan great
Mark Slyman: Old But Gold!!! :)
I'm enjoying a slide show of your photos while groovin' to all those sweet rhythms and jammin riffs on your new album. Bravo! Thanks Bobby!
Tony Messano: What a great show last night, Bobby. It's fun watching magic happen right in front of you.
Steven Koontz: awesome to hear !!!!
Rosie Sweeney: Like Bobby said...You don't know what you're missing. A must have if you love a rocking guitar. ♥
Every once in a blue moon something comes along and blows my mind. Todd Glazer, let me hear a cd from one of the musicians he promotes. His name is Bobby Messano and I gotta say he is my new favorite. I pasted a link to his stuff on amazon so y'all can discover him.
Bobby it was sooo nice to see you and the guys at Tofflers again. Thank You for your not swelled head and giving us such a treat in such an unassuming place. You are the "Real Thing". Tom in New gLarus
