Robert 'Bobby J' Jordan is a comprehensive entertainer who has for over four decades set the trend for cover artists on the circuit. Combining a mixture of musical diversity and a melodious and raspy tenor voice, he pleasures audiences with his stage presence, his wit, and his charm. From early beginnings, singing while playing drums to becoming the man at center stage, he definitely warrants every accolade because of his ability to swoon audiences.

Bobby J has released remakes of recordings Every Time You Go Away, Baby Come Back, and Ain't No Woman Like My Baby under the management of Radio Station WYLD. He's shared the stage with international greats: namely, the Temptations' own Ali Ollie Woodson, Peabo Bryson, Michael Henderson, D. J. Rogers, Chuck Mangione, Patti Labelle, Aaron Neville, Ashford and Simpson, Kool and the Gang, the Drifters, the Dixie Cups, Pieces of a Dream, Usher, Raheem DeVaughn, Larry Graham, Air Supply, the Pointer Sisters, Gladys Knight, Billy Preston, Rockin' Dopsie Jr., and Irma Thomas.

Well aware that gratitude changes everything, he remains honorable to his gospel roots. He plays drums for his church choir and, at every opportunity, offers his voice in praise and worship. He was a 2001 recipient of the Gospel Is Alive Award, presented by the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Foundation, Inc. in recognition of his "enthusiasm, dedication, and contribution to gospel music".

Bobby J primarily works the secular field rendering cover renditions that range from jazz to top 40.
His love for people, music and entertainment - which he believes to be synonymous - is apparent in his performances; thus, continually sparking the interest of agents, social and corporate organizations, and more. On the local scene, Quint Davis, Producer and Director of the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, recognized Bobby J's gravitational force, and thereby extended a personal invitation to Bobby J to appear on the 2005 festival. Not only is he recognized locally and regionally, in 2014, he was nominated to a national documentary, a Small Business Revolution, that highlights his musical ability, achievements and leadership. The document is set for release mid June 2015.

Some say they never heard of him, but once you've been entertained by Bobby J, you'll never forget him. His 40+ year career speaks for itself. Twenty-five of those years have been spent as band leader to Stuff Like That Band. He founded and organized this entity to do just what it does: leave audiences gawking in amazement. Fundamentally, he's a leader...a teacher...and a nurturer to younger artists. Most are inspired by him. He says to them, "Whether performing, rehearsing, or just listening to music, mine is a personal experience to which I assign meaning and emotion. Music is not a hustle for me; it's an art; it's my life. I put everything into it". And, he encourages all artists and musicians to do the same.

He's currently working to complete his first EP and soon to follow CD. A release date has not yet been set, but it's sure to merit global attention. Whether secular or sacred, many artists capture the ear; but, there's only one who is guaranteed to capture the heart.
