Wing Agency Artist: Bobby T's All Stars

In 1972, Bobby’s big break came after re-locating to Laurel, Mississippi, replacing drummer Keith Thibodeaux who had just left 'David & the Giants'. The group was touring non- stop while Bobby's reputation kept on growing.

The following year, Bobby T joined 'Paper Steamboat'. Steamboat was a precursor to the now legendary group, 'Thunderhead'. Numerous big name artists also jammed with them when they were in town. One such legendary notable was Johnny Winter, who was a big fan of Thunderhead. With the help of Johnny and Edgar Winter they were signed to ABC/Dunhill Records in 1974.

In 1976, Bobby replaced Tommy Aldridge in Black Oak Arkansas. He also began the first of two stints with fellow New Haven native Michael Bolton. At the time, Michael's career was exploding with two new RCA albums. Bobby was also touring extensively with Johnny Winter opening for Aerosmith, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Molly Hatchet, Ted Nugent, and ZZ Top. He also recorded two albums with Johnny Winter on Blue Sky Records – 'White, Hot & Blue' in 1978, and 'Raisin' Cain' in 1980. Bobby also recorded an album with Jefferson Starship's Grace Slick, 1981's 'Welcome to the Wrecking Ball' on RCA.

When not on tour with Johnny Winter, he kept busy gigging with Michael Bolton, appearing in two MTV music videos - Everybody's Crazy, and Fool's Game. The Bolton tour also found Bobby sharing the stage with numerous other celebrities including... Bob Seger, Cyndi Lauper, Electric Light Orchestra, George Thorogood, Robert Palmer, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and .38 Special. In 1985, he returned to Black Oak Arkansas. Cheap Trick's Robin Zander, encouraged him to write more originals, leading to the formation of The Bobby T Band in Chicago. Later on he moved to Nashville for a two-year gig with "Tony Stample" and the "Southern Renegades".

The number of bands and musicians Bobby T has worked with over the years reads like a “Who’s Who” of the music business. With no signs of slowing down, he appears busier than ever before. ‘T’ is presently gigging with five different groups: The Sin Sisters, 8 And Up, Fairly Famous, the Jay Willie Blues Band, and his own most recent creation The Bobby T. Torello All Stars.

Bobby T's All Stars features Bobby Torello on drums, Grammy award winning bass player Scott Spray, and Ryan Newman on guitar.

"Bobby Torello was my first choice "go to" touring drummer. He could easily steal the show with a two - minute solo. Bobby is a beloved musician who has played with an amazing array of internationally known artists... He rocks hard and steady. Bobby T is no less than awesome."

- Michael Bolton
