Rick Tobey


2012 TRIANGLE BLUES CHALLENGE REVIEW- "...He tackled the stomp board, mouth harp and guitar with grace and fluidity. He blew the crowd away with his self-described ‘Chickenhead Blues’. The crowd remarked about his outstanding originality..."

"Chicken Road" CD (KVMR FM Nevada City LISTENERS’ GUIDE Feb/Mar ‘10)- "…it’s sure to satisfy listeners partial to that brand of music and then some. Tobey sings with a gravelly voice of the Waits variety and wrote all but three of thirteen tracks on this under-the-radar masterpiece..."

"Chickenhead Blues" CD (OFFBEAT MAGAZINE, New Orleans. January, 2005)- "... African percussion dances around his nimble fretwork, steel shaving slide and banshee-shaving harmonica wailing… a John Lee Hooker-meets Duane Allman type of encounter

Good stuff!

Rick was the winner of the 2009 and 2012 Cape Fear Blues Society Solo Blues Challenges and the 2010 and 2013 Triangle Blues Society Solo Blues Challenge... The Chickenhead Blues Band won the 2007 Cape Fear Blues Society Blues Challenge.

CHICKEN ROAD was a top ten finalist in the IBC 2010 best self-produced CD contest. CHICKENHEAD BLUES was declared to be "one of the best sounding, well produced blues CDs ever recorded!"
