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.

Each of 43 performances received very enthusiastic standing ovations.

    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
