At 92 years young, not even a worldwide pandemic could stop Chicago blues legend, Bob Stroger from making his terrific new album, That's My Name!
Born in Hayti, MO in 1930, Bob Stroger was just 16 when his family moved north to Chicago. Settling in an apartment behind a bar on the city's west side afforded young Stroger the opportunity to absorb the sites and sounds of it's burgeoning blues scene. Before long, the self-taught bass guitarist was working with the likes of Eddie King, Otish Rush, Louisiana Red, and many more. Since then, Stroger has appeared on more than 30 Delmark releases but until now, this is his first as a true band leader. Backing him on That's My Name is a smokin' blues band from Brazil, the Headcutters.
