Hailing from the Kansas City area, Patrick Recob has spent the past twenty-five years honing his craft as a bassist, and is an alumni of the Gary Primich Band of the 1990s, Lee McBee in the 2000s, and a stellar list of who’s who of national act artists such as James Harman, RJ Mischo, Adrianna Marie & her Groovecutters, Smokin’ Joe Kubek & Bnois King to name a select few. Sharing the stage with many well known blues artists on high profile events around the United States, he has also toured Europe with The Gary Primich Band in 1995 and Mike Morgan & The Crawl featuring Lee McBee in 2007. Recob remains active touring as a sideman and is an especially strong fixture on the Midwest scene. He fronts the Confessors, Lee McBee’s former backup band, Sunday nights as the house band at BB’s Lawnside BBQ in Kansas City; a residency the band has had for 18 years.
Recob has recorded two acclaimed albums with Steve Gerard & The National Debonaires, and two albums with Michigan native Hank Mowery. The first recording with Mowery, ACCOUNT TO ME won the 2014 Blues Foundation International Blues Challenge for Best Self Produced CD. He also appeared on the Delta Groove Recording ROAD DOG’S LIFE by Smokin’ Joe Kubek & Bnois King in 2012.
His songwriting talents came to the forefront while on tour as bassist for the James Harman Band during his Midwest summer tour in 2016. Harman insisted he record and produce Recob’s debut album which manifested into PERPETUAL LUAU. Released in May 2017 on Recob’s Mr. Lucky’s Blues Recording Co., it gained recognition and was a critically acclaimed release making a number of esteemed Best of 2017 list compilations, including landing at #80 on the RMR Contemporary Blues Top 200 for 2017.
So now that Patrick Recob’s entrance as a solo artist has been affirmed, he gears up to take PERPETUAL LUAU on the road in 2018 to showcase his blues for the new millennium.
