Bobby Caldwell

Bobby Caldwell loved Warren County so much he moved here from San Diego, California in 2004 when he married his wife Mary. According to Bobby, even sunny San Diego can't beat the scenery, the seasons and the people of Warren County! The Caldwell farm is home to eight horses, including a couple of adopted ex-racehorses, and the family's home contains a complete music studio for Bobby's recordings. Caldwell writes most of his songs on keyboard in the studio and enjoys playing the guitar as well.

Bobby, I intend to make it to one or more of your shows this year...along with some friends that I've turned on to your music. Truth is...I LOVE your self penned songs so much better than any of the others. Such as 'Once Upon A Time' 'Real Thing' & 'Heart Of Mine' well as others you have written. Your voice,& that passionate & emotional vibe you add to each song is far and above any of the others in this genre. Its pure 'GOLD'. Take care of it and YOU.
....With Love, Lee

Incredible job, once again, Mr. Caldwell!! My husband I were present for your performance in Escondido. It was only our second time seeing you. Our first was 2 yrs ago when we were in Seattle, right before we took off for one of theose cruises to Alaska. We invited 2 family members to the show in Escondido whom we had told that you sing songs Sinatra-style. There wasn't a whole lot of that going on that night, but they thoroughly enjoyed the evening and also thought you were very cute!! Thank you for a lovely Valentines weekend show!!!!
