Bobby Valentine thirty years of getting paid for it


BVseatedThere are few Australian performers who deserve the title of ‘genuine entertainer’ as much as Bobby Valentine. The larger-than-life Valentine is a singer, songwriter, guitarist, band-leader and raconteur who has been, as the title of his new show notes, ‘getting paid for it’ for thirty years.

Anyone that has witnessed Bobby’s talents first hand will tell you that he most certainly earns his money! His huge, soulful voice and charismatic stage presence hark back to the era of the ‘song and dance man’ and he has no difficulty doing justice to the works of great artists and singers from Ray Charles to Hank Williams.

For 30 Years of Getting Paid for It, Bobby has put together an all-star 5 piece combo from the colleagues that he jokes “are still talking to me”. The show itself covers music from much of the twentieth century in styles ranging from jazz and blues to country, rock, pop and soul. In typical Valentine style it will be all about the audience – and all about the music.

Bobby Valentine: 30 Years of Getting Paid for It – hits The Flying Saucer Club in Elsternwick on Friday 26 September.
