Bobby Rush - Sitting On Top Of The Blues

Bobby Rush - Sitting On Top Of The Blues



After decades of tearing up the chitlin circuit on a nightly basis with his sweaty, no-holds-barred funkfests, Bobby has thoroughly broken through to the mainstream. He won a long-overdue 2017 GRAMMY for his spectacular album Porcupine Meat and consistently tours the globe as a headliner. What's more, Bobby's brand-new album Sitting on Top of the Blues on his own Deep Rush imprint (distributed by Thirty Tigers) promises to further spread the news that this revered legend, well past 80 years of age even if his stratospheric energy level belies the calendar, is bigger and badder and bolder than ever.

Bobby's performance itinerary has encompassed some of the biggest music festivals around the world, from Chaifetz Arena in St. Louis to Byron Bay Bluesfest in Australia, countless European engagements, the Fuji Rock Festival in Japan, and closer to home, Bonnaroo and the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. Rush was the first bluesman to perform at the Great Wall of China, attracting an audience of more than 40,000 and earning him the title of China's Ambassador of the Blues Bobby Rush has been featured in the PBS special docuseries, The Blues by Martin Scorsese, in the feature film Take Me to the River alongside Terrence Howard, Snoop Dogg, and Mavis Staples, on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon alongside Dan Aykroyd, and he makes an appearance in the upcoming Netflix original feature film Dolemite Is My Name alongside Eddie Murphy and Wesley Snipes.
