IEBS Article -

Bobby Patterson Band
by Carol Austin

Bluesman and singer/songwriter Bobby Fat Tone" Patterson delivers original songs and classic blues accompanied by masterful slide guitar and electrifying leads. Patterson's nickname derives from the name of the band he fronted for 13 years, The Fat Tones. He plays electric, acoustic and slide guitar and likes to scat. Scattin, he explained, is singing the same notes that I am playing on my guitar. His hot licks garnered him the Inland Empire Blues Society (IEBS) Best Blues Guitarist award in 2004, 2005, 2006, 2011 and 2012. Those awards led to his induction into the IEBS Hall of Fame. The IEBS helped put me on the map as a blues player, said Patterson.
