BIO

Bobby Cressey — Pianist / Organist / Keyboardist / Composer / Producer / Teacher

As one of the most versatile keyboardists on the West Coast, Bobby Cressey often finds himself pigeon holed by people who only know him for one thing or another. The straight ahead jazz lovers might have no idea that he is an authority on keyboard playing in Jamaican ska and reggae. People who hear him perform classical piano could be clueless to his skill in programming and performing on electronic sythesizers, or might never guess that he plays the organ for thousands of people at baseball games. Bobby has years of experience professionally performing and producing at the highest levels in multiple styles of music. For years he played with the world famous DJ Skee’s Skeetox band, currently plays organ for the San Diego Padres, and has performed with Ice Cube, Jesse McCartney, Xzibit, Lil’ John, Snoop Dogg, Warren G, Bobby Brown, The Glenn Miller big band and the Tom Kubis Big Band at Goldenwest. Bobby plays in San Diego’s premier corporate top 40 band, The Mighty Untouchables, in addition to several original projects including Tiffy Jane and the Kicks as well as his own jazz piano and organ combos. He’s also a founding member of ‘Western Standard Time’, an 18 piece ensemble that plays the traditional ska of the Skatalites with big band arrangements.

Bobby is also an accomplished composer and producer. His music can be heard through multiple outlets including television, movies, terrestrial, streaming and satellite radio, and video games. He also maintains an active roster of students, teaching a wide range of styles to students of all ages and walks of life. His newest album ‘Cali Native’ is an entirely self funded release and showcases brilliant horn arranging and a strong ensemble of rhythm players with tons of funk and soul.

Since 2010 he has lived in the University Heights area of San Diego, although he continues to work extensively in Hollywood and all of Southern California. He has a passion for moving others through his music, whether it be through performing, teaching or composing.
