Thanks for supporting the Bobby Rex Group in 2012. We had the most shows we have ever done in any given year since we started playing out in the mid eighties. It's all thanks to you, the folks who support the local music scene and frequent the restaurants and venues where the Bobby Rex Group performs. Now in 2013 we're gearing up for some special shows, new venues, and updated musical projects.
The Sprig O' Mint All Stars (Bobby Rex's Irish music show) are still available for St. Patty's weekend parties. This fun trio features Chris Grant on violin and performs classic Irish drinking songs such as: Whiskey In the Jar, Mountain Dew, Drink It Up Men, Whiskey You're the Devil, Jug of Punch, Danny Boy, Too Rah Loo Ra, The Unicorn Song, as well as some of the classic Irish reels like Irish Washerwoman, Sailor's Hornpipe, Swallow Tail Jig, Kesh Jig, Drowsy Maggie, Morrison's Jig, Jackie Tar, and Ashokan Farewell. To round out the set the band performs old country standards, swing, early rock and roll, and folk. Call Bobby Rex soon at 708-415-6410 to book the trio at your St. Patty's Day party!
Stay on the lookout for Bobby Rex at these fine venues in January: Lovell's of Lake Forest, Coopers Hawk Winery & Restaurant (Burr Ridge, IL), J. Fleming's Absolutely Delicious (Westmont), and Tuscany (Oak Brook). February see us the same places as above, and add in Scapa Italian Kitchen (Clarendon Hills), Winberie's (Buffalo Grove), Tuscany (Wheeling), and two new venues for Bobby Rex: Hillgrove Wine Cellars in Western Springs on Sat. Feb. 16th, and Tanin's Wine Bar in Elmhurst on Friday Feb. 22nd.
2013 will be an exciting year for the Bobby Rex Group. More shows are being added all the time. We hope to do some recording and possibly a little traveling too. See you soon.
