Bob Riedy was a crucial figure of the 1970’s Chicago blues scene. In addition to playing great Otis Spann-influenced piano and leading a consummate band capable of backing a wide array of great Chicago blues, he spearheaded RMR Productions, which brought many great great blues artists to a circuit of Northside clubs that included Biddy Mulligan’s, Wise Fool’s Pub, The Peanut Barrel, and others. Many great artists found work and popularity as they won over new audiences at these venues.
