BOOGIE BIO (e-mail: email@example.com)
Boogie Bob Baldori has been a mainstay of blues, boogie and rock in the midwest for 40 years. He has performed hundreds of dates in every major and minor venue from Detroit to Chicago, LA to New York to the White House for President Clinton. In addition to recording and performing his own material, Boogie Bob has produced and engineered over 200 albums. He also wrote and starred in I'M ALMOST FAMOUS, a rock/musical that had four successful productions starting at the Boarshead Theater in Lansing, Michigan, moving to the Wharton Center at MSU, the Apollo Theater in Chicago and in 1998 at The Limelight Theater, Toronto. He also combines a law practice with his recording/performing career, representing many clients in the entertainment field.
He is now working on a new CD titled THRILL NIGHT, a rambunctious collection of rock, blues and boogie that will demonstrate again why this legendary performer is king of the keyboards. Deep roots in vintage Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry, Sonny Boy Williamson and Memphis Slim are obvious but there is nothing dated about Boogie Bob's music.
Baldori started his career in the late sixties in Detroit with his group, The Woolies, and soon released a national hit, WHO DO YOU LOVE. In the following years, in addition to touring and performing extensively and recording on his own, he backed up Chuck Berry, playing hundreds of dates and recording two albums with Mr. Berry. In addition to Berry, Boogie Bob worked with many other blues and rock legends, including Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Luther Allison, Tom Rush, Del Shannon , Hubert Sumlin and Bo Diddley. Along the way he developed a style of piano playing heavily influenced by boogie and the relentless blues styles of Lafayette Leake, Otis Spann, James Booker and Johnny Johnson. If you like classic, no holds barred rock & roll piano boogie, this is for you!
Boogie Stomp! is a documentary film that will tell the story of boogie woogie, its origins, subsequent history and ongoing development. Boogie Stomp! will also tell the story of the amazing Bob Seeley. Bob Seeley spent his formative years playing with Meade Lux Lewis and other jazz greats in the 1950s and early 60s. Over the years Seeley has become known as the best boogie woogie and stride player in the world.
A few years ago Seeley met Bob Baldori at a boogie woogie festival in honor of the late Johnny Johnson, Chuck Berry's original piano player. Baldori had been playing piano and harmonica with Berry since 1966. In addition to fronting his own group he had spent years playing blues, boogie and backbeat rock and roll in Chicago and Detroit.
Boogie Stomp! documents how the basic elements of boogie woogie - rhythm and improvisation over a blues form - became the backbone of American music. It is an exploration of the relationship between blues, jazz, boogie, swing, stride, rock, R & B and contemporary pop music.
