Bobby Flurie

Bobby Flurie was born in New York City, grew up in the Baltimore/Wasington D.C. area, and became a guitar fanatic at age 16, playing some of his first gigs in strip clubs. While attending Peabody Conservatory of Music in the late sixties, where he was classically trained, he realized that he really wanted to play rock and roll, and started playing the D.C. club scene. It was about that time that he met legendary guitarist Roy Buchanan, who mentored him and helped him develop his musical imagination. Soon after , Bobby was heard by a national booking agent, who recruited him to play with Quicksilver Messenger Service, touring major cities throughout the country. He then relocated to the San Francisco Bay area where he spent 22 years, working with such acts as Country Joe & the Fish, The Chambers Brothers, The Pointer Sisters, Gary Lewis & the Playboys, Big Brother & the Holding Co., Huey Lewis and many more. He eventually returned to the East Coast to be closer to his family, and remains quite active in the music industry, playing,writing, and recording more music than ever before.
