Story
Introduction
Hi, I am Bobby Logsdon, a self taught guitarist/vocalist from the greater Cincinnati area. I fell in love with the blues at an early age when he heard Elvis Presley's version of “One Night With You”. That song just rang true to me with that laid back Blues feeling.

Not long after that, The Rolling Stones records introduced me to Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley and Muddy Water's songs. Muddy became my favorite instantly! But, It was hard to find and buy those records at 13 years old. At 15 I met a guy named “Yo” in our suburban Cincinnati, Ohio neighborhood who had a large blues record collection. I would go over there every day with an old beat up Stella guitar and play along with those songs and he would blow the harp. I would use a old rounded knife handle to play slide. I formed the “Bobby Logsdon Blues Band” in 1969, but with no real gigs available, the guys left me to join bands playing top 40 dance songs. Some went on to be successful playing out on the road.

Not wanting to “sell out” like the others, I just jammed around with fellow blues musicians that I could find. Deer Park had some blues guys that were real good. And I met some guys jammin' downtown.

By the late 70's, some old school buddies talked me into starting a bar band. I said “Why not, as long as I can do some of my blues songs.” Then I just kept doing it... playing with whatever band I could get in. In the 80's I gigged a lot with Gradual Taylor's band playing a little bit of all types of music. From him, I learned more about being an entertainer and I acquired the “Bad Bob” name.
The 90's brought me full circle back to the blues with my new band,
BAD BOB and THE HOMEWRECKERS!
In October '92, with this new band, I opened the very first “Queen City Bluesfest” at Topper Ballroom adjoining Cincinnati Music Hall. We supported local blues legend, Albert Washington's set. 
We became regulars at the local clubs and bars and hosted a jam in Reading, Ohio at Stormin' Norman's Bar. 

In '95, after several different line ups, I disbanded BB&HW and was called to play bass guitar for “Sonny Moorman and The Dogs”. 
Sonny gigged 7 nites a week and it took it's toll on the members. Again, I found myself in a wonderful learning situation playing 300+ nites a year with two of the best musicians. This is where the rubber meets the pavement. No holds barred. 
With SM&Dogs, I again found myself playing the '95 and '96 
QC Bluesfest. One year we went on just before Luther Allison, what a great time it was. Then we recorded “Telegraph Road” at The Legendary Sun Studio's on 706 records. “Who's been Talkin'”, a song that Howlin' Wolf recorded in Memphis, was my choice to perform on the CD. 

“Into The Blues”, a group I formed in '98, for the local blues scene played many a nites at Gary Burbank's BBQ's in Ohio and Kentucky. 
This was the first group I had the chance to ask harmonica master Larry Bloomfield to join. 

The last 10 years I have filled in for a lot of bands. In 2008 Debra J Ohlinger, Larry Bloomfield, Don Kehrer and myself formed “Bad Bob Band” with whom I played 60+ gigs in'09. Bluesbent replaced the BBB moniker in 2010 and we also developed a acoustic trio. "Bluesbent Live, Real Blues" was recorded in front of a live audience at Willis Music Center July of 2011. And released that fall.  Bluesbent continued to play shows up through August 2014.
