|Musician & Entertainer|
Bobby Rush is a blues great. He has garnered recognition from music lovers from far and wide for his own deep-rooted appreciation of music, and much more. Rush was nominated for the Blues Music Award in the category of Soul Blues Male Artist of the Year 13 times in 14 consecutive years. His signature suits, swagger and strut have become widespread marks of distinction which characterize the charismatic entertainer, and he continues to work hard as a musician, entrepreneur, chef and boss.
Rush incorporates comedy into his routines, bringing dances and female performers to the stage that give his audiences a chance to set aside the performances that they have seen in the past, and remember his for ages. He wants them to remember him as a solo act, but to truly embrace him as an entertainer. Rush is also the owner of Deep Rush Records and Bobby Rush Hot Links. His record company supports his desire to effectively think for himself as an entertainer. As head of Bobby Rush Hot Links, Rush uses the hot sausage recipe that he learned from his father as a child, and incorporates this and other recipes into the operation of local barbecue houses. Rush is also involved with local prison ministries. He enjoys helping people in any way that he can—whether he is able to give them opportunities to be entertained, or to change their lives for the better, Bobby Rush works hard to inspire and people and keep them amused.
