With a big-as-the-room persona, an ability to rock the doors off the most jaded of clubs, the heart to hold a room completely still with just his guitar, and a genius for arrangement, Bobby Bare Jr and his band of merry makers (the Young Criminals' Starvation League) are one of the most unique bands around. They are adept at abandoning common sense in favor of laying themselves at the feet of a rambunctious, freewheeling, and unfettered and unhinged muse. Bobby has already had quite the life in music. Son of country music royalty, Bobby Bare (singer of such classics as "Detroit City, "Miller..s Cave," and "500 Miles Away From Home" and 56 other Top 40 country hits), Bobby was nominated for a Grammy for a duet with his father at the age of five. He even sang on the Ryman stage on its closing night. Don..t know about you, but at five most of us were still working out the intriguing mysteries of the bathroom and figuring out how they fit all those little people in the TV. In the late 90..s, BBJ fronted the boss hog rock band, Bare Jr. With their two records, "Boo-tay" and "Brainwasher," they memorably rocked out on a Nirvana-on-Skynryd-not-Sabbath groove, more indebted to the homebrew than "The Other H." Few can combine humor, pain, and anger in such an effortlessly well-crafted manner. If encountered in public, beware: Bobby is a big, gregarious, good-natured fellow who will giddily talk music (from the Smiths to Roger Miller to Metallica to Dolly Parton - sometimes in one breath) until the bartender is tossing you both out.
