Bob Dorr

He was honored/recognized for those years by being inducted into the Iowa Rock'n'Roll Music Association's Hall of Fame in Sept. of 2000.

Simultaneously, Bob has been the leader, singer, and harmonica player of The Blue Band for 30+ years for which he was inducted into the Iowa Blues Hall of Fame in 2005 and reinducted into the Iowa Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame in 2007.
