Bob Dellaposta, and the Broken String Band
Bob has been performing blues and rock music in Southwest Ohio and Northern Ky for more than 30 years. A native of Bellevue, KY he performed his first gig for money when he was just 15 years old. He has resided in Middletown, OH for the past 30+ years where in 2014 he was one of five entertainers recognized as a Local Legend. He has performed in New York City and Nashville, TN. He has been a familiar entertainer in local clubs and night spots singing what he calls blues based music with a rock-n-roll influence. He has shared the stage with guitar greats Walter Trout and Johnny A., blues legends John Hammond, John Lee Hooker, Jr. and Doug MacCleod, Americana roots blues and rock master Delbert McClinton and former Allman Bros. alum Johnny Neel. In 2007 he released Baby I’m A Rich man, a collection of original blues and rock tunes with a host of area musicians. In support of its release, he began touring with his current band “The Broken String Band”. In Dec. 2009, prior to opening the show for John Hammond @ Taffy’s of Eaton, it was announced that Bob would be the first inductee of the Taffy’s Hall of Fame for his contributions to Taffy’s and volunteerism for community fundraisers. In 2014 he released a second collection of original blues and rock tunes called “Face the Evil” with his Broken String Band. He has been described by Tunes & Trends magazine as “Hard to miss and impossible to ignore” and Guitar Digest described him as “a genuine blues cat who always strives to give the audience his best”.
