Bio
Nashville singer/songwriter Bobby Pizazz and his band, RhythmTrain, offer a variety of original tunage, with writing influences as varied as Hank Williams, Jim Croce and Earth Wind & Fire.

Bobby Pizazz, a life-long entertainer, made regular appearances on the nostalgic TNN (Nashville Network) performing his self-penned favorites “Because of You”, “Rhythm Train”, and “Lost, Lonely, Feelin’ Blue”.

The second of five children, Bobby Joe was born on December 3, 1951, in Flint, Michigan and earned his nickname after ad-libbing a song as a cheesy wedding gift, after his wallet was stolen and he had no other offering for the newlyweds . Interested in music since he was old enough to sneak his sibling’s transistor radios out to the garage to listen to what he wanted, Pizzaz mowed lawns at a Propane gas bottling plant in Flint, at age 9, just to earn enough money to buy his first guitar.

Singing since age 6, he continued to perform locally, until he was drafted to serve in Vietnam in 1970. After war veteran Bobby returned home, he traveled the country during his minstrel man phase, performing gospel in Shreveport LA, and Top-40 in South Dakota and Michigan. In 1984, Pizazz and family moved to Nashville, and before the bags were unpacked, he had landed a role as an extra in the Patsy Cline biopic Sweet Dreams (where he spent most of his off-camera time staring at Jessica Lange).

In 1988, he worked on the production of several Voice of America special projects. In May 1991, his career came to an abrupt stop when a backstage mishap left him with a broken neck. 15 years later, he began to perform live shows again and is currently recording a new CD with the help of old friends, including Mel Torme’s legendary horn player Sherm Mitchell.

Says Bobby, “I have song in my soul, I have a story that that must be told. As I write these songs I tell of life, and if you listen close, you will see, that this is not just my song, but ours in joy and strife. I’m a Music Story
