"Bob Margolin continues to stretch his boundaries on every recording, which is just part of what makes him a national treasure."

BOB MARGOLIN, Self-Artisted Booking Agent:
Since 2020, I book myself directly. No past or new booking agency. I book and play events, festivals, and house parties. I can work solo (acoustic, electric or both), in duos, with a band I put together, as a guest with another band or one provided by a promoter. I have 43 years experience leading bands in the moment and making a show out of it.
I love to play for you so much and the business part is now easy. For previous and new promoters, or musicians who have shows we can do together, just CONTACT ME direct. We’ll put together smart plans that work easy and profitably all around, professional, friendly, and honest. I hope all your Blues are musical.
Thanks for the good times we already had together. Steady Rollin’ on.
THANKS - BEHIND THE SONGS WITH STORIES AND PHOTOS
More in my rearview mirror than in front of my windshield
But I’ve still got a long way to go
Old souls inside, man what a ride!
Steady Rollin’ on
I sang that in 2022. In 2023, I celebrate 50 years since Muddy Waters took me in his band for seven years and all that came from that Crossroads. With this album I thank Muddy, a certain special guitar, and the wonderful musicians who blessed me with their music and friendship.
Inspired by response to my Facebook posts, stories and photos about “the old days,” and because I can with today’s technology, I want to give you everything I have about where this album comes from. More than will fit in CD packaging, here’s what I’d tell you if we were hanging out and I could tell you stories and show you photos on my phone while we listen to the album together. This way, YOU can choose if, when and how deep you want to go. You don’t have to start at the beginning and read to the end, you can skip around to what interests you. Scroll through, I title the topics in bold print. You can, of course, just play the music.
