Steady Rollin' Bob Margolin is a Blues guitar player and singer, carrying on the deep Chicago Blues style and creating his original music today. His shows are known for deep Blues, a wide variety of Blues-based styles, and a friendly good time for his audiences.
From 1973-1980, Bob played guitar in the band of Chicago Blues legend Muddy Waters, touring worldwide and recording, and learning to play Muddy's powerful music directly from him. He appears beside Muddy with The Band in the 1978 legendary music film The Last Waltz.
