Bobby Midnight
Over 20 years in the music business; 20 cds recorded (available at BlueSpawn Records); member of Tempus Fuget (10 years), Marauder & The Big Ordeals(10 years); written and recorded over close to 400 original songs rock, folk, metal, rock, punk, blues and many other styles (anything that rocks); Over 2000 gigs documented from the local corner joint, to the Chicago's Riviera to national festivals.

As a teenager, Bobby wanted to be DJ like heard on Chicago's WLS radio and other stations. "Spinning the tunes, that's what I wanted to do...", Bobby relates. Then he just cut to the chase, he says "I cut out the middle man and decided to play my own music!". "I always wanted to write a song as great as Elton John's "Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me", if you write a song as great as that, you're amazing." He states John Lennon of the Beatles, Paul Stanley of KISS, Rob Halford, Robin Zander of Cheap Trick, Freddie Mercury of Queen, the Ramones and many others influenced his music.

Stray Dog Recording Co. is where Bobby Midnight can be found this winter. A series of albums with all three of his bands (which continue to play to this day in Chicago) are currently being recorded into mid-2005. Bobby Midnight leads guitar and vocal duties with The Big Ordeals, lead vocals in the metal masters Marauder & bass player with Robert Fairweather & Luv Machine.
