Join us Thursday, May 16, 2024 at Board & Batten, LLC (1408 Walnut) 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm as we welcome Bob Pace back to the stage.

Guitarist Bob Pace has entertained Midwest audiences for more than 40 years. He proudly led the Tuesday night house band at the legendary Blues on Grand for almost 20 years. He has also won the Iowa Blues Challenge solo/duo competition with IBHOF member Steve E. George.

Bob has opened for Blues icons Jimmy Vaughan, Johnny Winter, John Mayall, Tab Benoit, Tower of Power, Delbert McClinton and countless others.

He picked up his first guitar at 10 and was serious by 14. Bob recalls the “defining experience” of watching The Beatles and the screaming girls on The Ed Sullivan Show.  That (the girls) sealed the deal: “I had to play guitar.”Additionally, he has jammed with Junior Wells, Eric Sardinas, Coco Montoya, Kenny Neal, Willie (Big Eyes) Smith and Sonny Rhodes to name but a few.

A talented composer, Bob has penned countless tunes and has released “Bare Bones” and “Bob Pace Live at Blues on Grand” featuring 8 originals including the soulful “Gospel Blues.”His mother influenced him with the Gospel and Blues of Mahalia Jackson and Billie Holiday, while his Dad opened the gate to the country music landscape of Johnny Cash and Merle Haggard. It came together as he immersed himself in his early guitar heroes–all the Kings, Roy Buchanan, Mike Bloomfield, Duane Allman, Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton.

Jimmy's at Board and Batten is open and offers a selection of domestic and imported beverages for purchase.

Bring along friends and family to enjoy music, socializing and shopping all in one place!
