Bob Gaddy played his piano around the New York clubs for many decades. Bob Gaddy was born in 1924 in Vivian, Virginia, a small coal-mining town. Bob’s father was a miner who sang in a vocal quartet at the weekend, and Bob followed his lead, also singing in Church. In the late 30s, Blind Boy Fuller was a big Blues star, and Bob became a fan, and also started learning piano. He was conscripted into The Navy during WWII, and played boogie-woogie style in Blues clubs around San Francisco and Oakland when he was stationed on the West coast Bob also recorded with Brownie McGhee as one of his Jook Busters, and then formed his own band, The Alley Cats, to record ‘No Help Wanted’ for Jax Records. Bob’s laid back delivery and twinkling fingers on ‘Operator’
