“St. Louis guitarist/singer/songwriter Pokey LaFarge leans on ragtime, country blues, Western swing and the early jazz of Chicago and New Orleans to create a spirited and engaging Americana style that has a playfulness the period re-creationists often forget.” Billboard

“LaFarge explores western swing, ragtime, blues and folk with a ton of energy and style, taking traditional American music out of the museum and making it vital and fresh once again.”  Ann Arbor News

“LaFarge not only remembers the good times—he is the good times…. LaFarge is the performer who’s ahead of the game right now, one potent enough to gain the attention of Jack White, who’s keen to record him. And this album, bless its Jelly Roll heart, should induce further attention as Pokey, singing, guitar-strumming and delivering hot kazoo, revives memories of old New Orleans, stirred in with country blues and a touch of Western swing…”  MOJO (UK)

Friends of Bob is a not-for-profit cooperative that brings great music to Lafayette. Please consider becoming a dues-paying Friend of Bob

2014 dues are $10, though if you 'd like to donate more, that would be great. (Since we are a registered 501 [c][3] organization, donations above the $10 level can be tax-deductible.) Before each show, we publish a newsletter giving background information -- membership dues pay for the printing and mailing of these newsletters. Plus, our affordable admission prices in small venues sometimes fail to cover expenses, so membership contributions provide us with a safety net for such occasions. Friends of Bob is a not-for-profit all-volunteer organization that works to bring outstanding live music to Lafayette. A membership form can be found by clicking on the How Can You Help button at the top of this page.

Please support this cooperative effort to bring fine music to Lafayette.
