We are blessed with a plethora of seasoned, talented and well traveled musicians in South Florida and, once again, one of them will share their music, their stories and their evening with us. Bob Ingram has been playing his wonderful music in, and around South Florida since the first coffee houses, The Coffee House, Pegasus, The Flick, opened. He has shared bills with everyone from Joni Mitchell, Spanky and Our Gang, Vince Martin, Fred Neil, Jimmy Buffet, Steve Goodman, Gamble Rogers and many, many others, far too numerous to mention. Rampant nostalgia, radical philosophy and random hilarity. If there´s a song from the last forty years he doesn´t know, it probably isn´t worth knowing. Like putting on old shoes.
Just back from 2 weeks on the road as a guest of Crosby, Stills and Nash, Bob will have some great stories for us. A Coconut Grove native, he resided at the corner stone of a flourishing folk scene in the ’60s and ’70s singing by the Bay. He has toured and entertained audiences now for five decades with his broad folk music repertoire and humorous stories. He is truly a Florida original and greatly respected in folk and pop music circles. Bobby’s professional beginnings as a touring member of Les Baxter’s Balladeers along with fellow member David Crosby, who introduced and endeared Bobby Ingram to musicians across America. He has performed with David Crosby, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Jimmy Buffett, Fred Neil, Gail Garnet and many others. During his career, Bobby Ingram has owned, operated, partnered and performed in several South Florida coffeehouses including “Café Catacomb” in Ft. Lauderdale; “Gaslight South” in Coconut Grove; and “The Flick” in Coral Gables. He is also famous for making “Monty’s Raw Bar” a rare musical retreat on Biscayne Bay in Coconut Grove. To hear Bobby Ingram sing is an opportunity to re-visit Coconut Grove as an undiscovered artist and sailing colony while the Bay Breeze blows his songs gently into your heart.
