Ο Μπόμπι Μπλάντ το 1995

Ο Ρόμπερτ Μπλαντ (Robert Calvin "Bobby" Bland, 27 Ιανουαρίου 1930 – 23 Ιουνίου 2013), γνωστός και ως Μπόμπι Μπλου Μπλαντ (Bobby "Blue" Bland) ήταν Αμερικανός τραγουδιστής της μπλουζ και της σόουλ. Αρχικά ήταν μέλος των Beale Streeters[1] και αναφερόταν μερικές φορές με το όνομα "Λιοντάρι της Μπλουζ". Μαζί με άλλους καλλιτέχνες όπως οι Σαμ Κουκ, Ρέι Τσαρλς και Τζούνιορ Πάρκερ, ο Μπλαντ ανέπτυξε έναν ήχο που συγκέρασε την γκόσπελ με την μπλουζ και την R&B.[1] Μιμητής του Φρανκ Σινάτρα, ήταν επίσης γνωστός ως ο "Σινάτρα των μπλουζ". Η μουσική του έχει επίσης επιρροές από το Νατ Κινγκ Κόουλ.[2] Ο Μπλαντ έγινε μέλος του Blues Hall of Fame το 1981 και του Rock and Roll Hall of Fame το 1992, ενώ τιμήθηκε και με Βραβείο Γκράμι συνολικής προσφοράς το 1997.[3]
