Robbie Limon of Middletown, Virginia is an award-winning entertainer who mixes solo and band appearances with acting/singing roles at professional theaters.

Since 2002 Robbie has been backed by a 5-piece professional band that remains committed to sounding like the original recordings of the playlist they perform.

Currently, Robbie plays over 200 dates a year. Robbie has been on the bandstand for over thirty  years and brings his love of `70s-era songwriters to each performance. The result is an eclectic mix of the Eagles, John Denver, Gordon Lightfoot, Credence Clearwater Revival, Roy Orbison, The Doobie Brothers, Jim Croce, Willie Nelson, and several others. Listeners report that the song arrangements and voice characterizations are exactly what is recalled from the original recordings.

Robbie’s ability to copy the tonal qualities and phrasings of other vocalists led to his role as Hank Williams, Sr. in 40 performances at the Wayside Theater near Winchester, Virginia. The 2005 Chiquita Award was given by M. Lawrence of The American Theater Critics Association for Robbie’s portrayal of Country Music’s first superstar.

In 2006 Robbie co-wrote ‘Lovesick Blues’ a musical theater tribute to Hank Williams, Sr. featuring an on-stage country band and twenty songs closely identified with this legendary performer. The Narrator weaves Williams’ life events with the songs they inspired. Robbie currently performs as Hank Williams in theatres around the country.  The website lovesickbluestribute.com contains pictures, audio samples, and additional information from the show. Local performances may be arranged directly with Robbie at (301) 263-4356

In 2007, Robbie returned to The Wayside Theater in the title role of ‘Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story’. His recreation of the physical appearance and performance style of this innovative songwriter of the late 1950s broke all attendance records in the Theater’s history. Each of 43 performances received very enthusiastic standing ovations.

Robbie currently performs as Buddy Holly in theatres around the country.

In 2010, Robbie began performing, “Singers & Songwriters”, featuring Robbie Limon.  This 90 minute intimate solo/acoustic concert highlights the great music from the 50’s, 60’s & 70’s

In 2010, Robbie signed a 7-year record contract with Acetate Records in Los Angeles, CA, as a member of the all original rock band “The Factory”.  Robbie currently performs shows with the band.

    Thoroughly enjoyed the show at the Middletown Fourth of July celebration. I grew up listening to 70’s classic rock. The Robbie Limon Band did every song they played justice. When they played “Into The Mystic”, that was it for me. I became a fan. I look forward to seeing them again soon.

    I also had a nice chat with keyboardist Hank Zimmerman prior to the show, and between sets one and two. Super nice guy, and excellent keyboardist. Even though he was busy setting up, he took the time to talk. Very sincere, down to earth guy. Thank you.

    THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU…. Robbie, Chuck, Paul, Hank, Jamie & Ralph!!!! I had the pleasure of meeting you fellows last week while working & knew right away that I had to take a night off to come to one of your shows. By the end of the night I had become such a fan that I was already contacting people that I believed would enjoy hearing you as much as I did to come see a show.

    Tonight I had the pleasure of coming out to Picadilly’s, I brought my Mom, my cousin (who isn’t generally fond of crowds) & his fiance. We had the absolute best time & will be coming out to see these guys again!!! Again, thank you for an amazing night! The Robbie Limon Band is truly a wonderful bunch of guys, so talented & so welcoming! I cannot wait to come see you all again!!!!!

    The letter of accommodation you read and presented to Robbie Limon was “right on”. Robbie Limon is a well polished performer, very comfortable on stage and is in the “Mr. Entertainer” class. His hour of performing was super as he and his excellent band did songs from Roy Orbison, Johnny Cash, Hank Williams and others. It goes without saying my friends and I will be attending a Robbie Limon concert in the future here in the Shenandoah Valley.

    Hi Robbie,
    We had the best time last night…Good Food , Great Music, & Great Company (Annette)!
    Thanks for taking time out to talk to us, we enjoyed talking with you.
    You & your band are really good & very talented.
    Pinball Wizard was intense, although we loved every one of your songs.
    Thanks so much. :-)

    Last night was a perfect evening for us…& the kind of atmosphere we like & comfortable with.
    It’s been way too long & we’ll have to do that again…soon.
    Yes, I know where your calendar is on your website.
    You did see that you, along with Katie, shamed us into slow-dancing…haven’t done that since our wedding 24 3/4 years ago.
    Annette prefers fast-dancing but it was great, regardless, and badly needed.

    Hope you & the family have a great Christmas, in spite of Pat continuing to recover in the hospital.

    Take care,
    Jeff McCracken

    Robbie we first saw your band outside at the Brew Pub last summer. Have been fans ever since. Seen you at the Pub and IJ Canns several times. Saw both the Hank Williams and the Buddy Holly Special. OUSTANDING, every enjoyable evening. Your whole band seems to have a great time entertaining the crowd. You can look for me out there again very soon always try to sit up front, the old guy with gray hair, most of the time with a group of 8 or 10. I saw a comment on a Johnny Cash Special, do you have a special scheduled anytime soon?

  8. Ray says:

    Thanks for a fun evening at the Hagerstown Elks. Hope you are back in the area soon. Great mix of music 50’s-70’s and a lot of songs we could swing dance too.

    Hope to see you soon.

  9. ralph says:

    Heart you last night at Griffin Tavern. You are at the same level as Vegas or at least Atlantic City acts prior to making it big. I am saying this just based on your Johnny Cash act, let alone you got a wide range that shows a great amount of talent.-Tony

  10. Jan Onieal says:

    My family and I are still talking about how much we enjoyed your band at the Totem Pole Playhouse fundraiser earlier this month! In fact, Cassidy (perhaps your youngest fan at 7!) keeps asking me when we are going to Virginia to see The Robbie Limon Band!! My daughter overheard a conversation between some of the kids, and when asked about favorite singer, favorite band, etc, Cassidy said that The Robbie Limon Band was her favorite! Love it. Hope to see you all soon! :-)
    (also fun to see Hank and Laura!)

    I want you to know how much Gene and I enjoyed your concert at Marker Miller Orchard in Frederick County.
    I was hoping to tell you this at the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley Concert but things were too busy. That was another fabulous evening also with your Great Band.

    I had been waiting for such a day at Marker Miller, when summer is telling us she is leaving. I am not a warm weather person, so I was loving the cool day.

    The skies were such a beautiful clear blue and the wind was cleansing and fresh. I didn’t think it could have been better…. and then you topped it off with your talent.

    I know how much people enjoy your music but with everyone shopping and watching their children, I was thinking you could have felt like you were being overlooked.

    I know you are aware of the effect of music and how it can change our thoughts and moods. People like to connect with another time as you bring those songs back to life. ( Perfectly done, I might add )

    You gave us wonderful new memories with that day.
    I am sure you live a tough schedule but I hope you never get tired of what you do.

    It is your genuine love of playing and singing that comes through and splashes out on others.

    We felt like you were giving a personal concert just for us.

    Thanks again,

  13. Craig says:

    I had a great time at the Totem Pole fund raiser yesterday. Your concert was wonderful. I love 70s music. I have previously enjoyed you as Hank Williams, Buddy Holly and in that other play, was it called Southern Crossroads. Glad to meet you yesterday and get a signed CD.

  14. Gail Hermosilla says:

    Had a wonderful evening last night at the Music in the Gardens at the Shenandoah Valley Museum. When Robbie performs the songs that were so much a part of our lives growing up, it brings back warm and happy feelings. Thank you for a great time!

  15. Me says:

    Love your music, it really calmed me and made me realize how rushed and hurried we can be in life. Starting my week relaxed after a great performance by you on saturday in Leesburg. Thanks and keep singing, becuase;

    ‘Without a song, the day would never end; without a song, a man ain’t got a friend; without a song, the road would never bend – without a song.’ So I keep singing a song.” elvis

  16. Peggy says:

    Thanks for the great performance at Regency Dominion Valley. We enjoyed it and will plan to see you again.

  17. Peggy & Joe Cloud says:

    We attended the June 30th show at Wayside, Lost Highway, and what a performance. It was so much more than the reviews in our local newspaper, what a show. When “Hank” sang it was like being there with him, all the great songs he recorded. Again, it was just wonderful and glad we were able to see the last show. Keep up the good work…..

  18. ralph says:

    I sat and listened to you perform(for quite awhile) last Sunday at Matthew’s party. Last evening we were at Wayside and thoroughly enjoyed Lost Highway and a few years ago I was transported back to my youth(which was before the Earth cooled) as you became-for me-Buddy Holly.

    You are an incredibly talented man and I for one am very glad to see you perform and will continue to seek you out when you perform.

    Well done and keep it up(if you can-phew).

  19. Gayle Schild says:

    We enjoy each of your shows, and can’t wait for the next one! Including driving to Pa, for another awsome Buddy Holly show. Loved Sunday’s Hank Williams. Look forward to seeing u at local Wineries. Thanks, for the music, and great show.
