Bobby Messano, a triple threat artist with his powerful vocals, skillful songwriting abilities, and hard hitting guitarist; is hitting the road in October! Along side Bobby includes a wild mix of solo performances, duo shows with keyboardist/vocalist Bob Malone (John Fogerty).
Messano is primed and pumped to share music from his crushingly successful new album, LEMONADE, which dropped in July. The title track’s companion video premiered on Heartland TV Network to more than 22.4 million households across the U.S. and is now racking up tens of thousands of plays on IndiMusic TV, Roku, Hot Rock TV, Miami Music TV, My Jam Music Network, CMCTV (San Francisco), Next Stop Nashville, DECTV and other outlets. The album’s first three singles – “The Bad Guys,” “Heal Me” and “Lemonade” – are at radio and all digital platforms. SiriusXM’s Bluesville and Jam On channels are also featuring tracks from the album.
The disc is ringing the bell with reviewers, with Americana Highwayscalling the project, “one of the most righteous Roots albums of the year.” Goldmine describes LEMONADE as “delicious,” KRFC-Fort Collins dubs the offering “liquid gold,” and Blue Monday Monthly Tabloid notes the project is a “must have.”
Bobby’s music has not only vibed the airwaves, but has also appeared in jingles and movies, and his song “Dominion Roads” is featured in the newly released film, VFW. The film stars Stephen Lang (Avatar), William Sadler (Die Hard 2, Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, The Shawshank Redemption), Martin Kove (The Karate Kid I, II, III, Rambo: First Blood Part II), David Patrick Kelly (48 Hours, The Crow) and George Wendt (Cheers).
