Miami, Dec. 19, 2018 – Miami Dade College’s (MDC) Arts and Philosophy Department continues its successful jazz series, Jazz at Wolfson Presents, with Hammond B-3 organist Bobby Floyd, who will perform at noon, Wednesday, Jan. 23, at MDC’s Wolfson Campus, in downtown Miami.
Bobby Floyd’s talent has launched him into a rewarding career, making him one of the favorite, first-call organists for many well-known artists including Ray Charles whom he accompanied on piano and organ on some of his world tours, as well as Grammy Award winning performer Dr. John. In addition, he toured nationally and internationally as the feature pianist for the world-famous and legendary Count Basie Orchestra from 2012-2017.
He currently makes guest appearances with some of the most distinguished orchestras in the United States, including The Boston Pops, The Rochester Philharmonic, and The Detroit Symphony. Bobby Floyd also performs with Grammy Award winning trumpeter Doc Severinsen.
“Bobby is a tremendous talent, someone who has a gift for creating unique musical performances,” said series director Dr. Michael Di Liddo. “His soulful, gospel-infused jazz strikes the heartstrings of his listeners. I have watched audiences respond to his music with joy, enthusiasm and reciprocated love. Bobby Floyd is someone you don’t want to miss. You will be touched by his musical magic.”
