If longevity is the goal of most professional entertainers, then Bobby Ryder has proven himself a master. Bobby has allowed his music and his creativity to flourish with fresh innovative performances night after night.
Bobby's career can be traced back to Patterson, New Jersey where he studied under musical mentors Professor Gaetano Dittamo and Paul Gallucio. Over the years Bobby has developed into a dynamic nightclub singer and saxophonist with a musical range that includes jazz, standards, blues, and especially his favorites Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett and Bobby Darin.
Bobby started his career headlining at the Play Boy Club, the Peppermint Lounge, Radio City Music Hall (198 shows), The Sheridan in Atlanta, the Out Rigger, Prince Kuhio Hotel, the Intercontinental Hotel, Maui and the Royal Hawaiian
Hotel on Oahu.
In 1984 Bobby was asked to come to Hilton Head where he had a 14-year run at the Mariners Inn (currently the Omni Resort) as its headline act. He raised a family on the island and his popularity has made him an island legend.
