Bobby Cure
Band Leader, Vocalist
Bobby Cure, acclaimed New Orleans homegrown band leader, began his professional career in 1971. In the early days, Bobby played drums in a band with his brother, Larry, who was a singer but in 1973 that all changed. Bobby traded in his sticks for the microphone and spotlight, and formed Bobby Cure and the Summertime Blues and the momentum is still going. Bobby and his band have played the New Orleans Jazz Festival for 12 years straight. They have played for every major Carnival Culb in the greater New Orleans area. The Summertime Blues were a fixture at the 1984 New Orleans World's Fair for a six month run. Bobby has also helped to celebrate countless

weddings and is considered the the area's most prolific wedding singer. As well as being a band leader, he has also owned two well known clubs in the New Orleans area. Bobby's Place in Chalmette hosted many national acts including Fats Domino, Aaron Neville, Irma Thomas, The Drifters, Chubby Checker, and Brook Benton from 1978 until 1985. Now Bobby has a restaurant/bar in Metairie called The Beach House. It offers patrons great food and entertainment seven nights a week.
