'Forever' StuffViewing this site, Bobby J seemed authentic. A real artist with deep New Orleans' roots and soul. This is what I want my wedding guests to hear, see and feel.
So I called the inquiry number on Bobby J's website on a Sunday afternoon. As Lisa, the representative, and I talked she shared excellent and candid advice. She shared stories about Bobby J and his work and their lives together as husband and wife. At one point I heard Lisa start to speak to someone else - “Bobby, this is Lauren. She and Luke are getting married at the Bourbon Orleans in the Quarter.” Then Bobby asked for my favorite song. I said anything by Otis Redding.
What followed blew my mind – an acoustic, impromptu serenade of an Otis medley delivered with such incredible precision, spot-on through and through, and overflowing with soul. It was truly amazing. I immediately told Bobby he was hired right then.
Lisa and I continued to talk afterward. We chatted for an hour and fourty minutes. That woman has soul to match Bobby J's and is unbelievably generous with her time and wisdom. Thank you Lisa for your spirit. Thank you Bobby for your heavenly voice inspiring me to dance on a Sunday afternoon. Thank you both for your decades of devotion to music and making weddings happen.
Hanging up the phone I was smiling. I know my wedding is going to be awesome.
Wedding: March 7, 2015
