Bobby’s Live on 965 — Thursday, June 18 at 7 p.m.

Opened earlier this year, Bobby’s Live on 965 joins area venues in hosting live music performances by both national and local acts, including Coralville-based blues musician Kevin B.F. Burt who plays tonight at 7 p.m.

Bobby’s Live on 965 is located in the building formerly occupied by Eggy’s on 965. After 11 years of operation as Eggy’s, the bar and restaurant changed hands this past January and has since undergone significant renovations, transforming into a live music venue that will host weekly entertainment, says Bobby’s co-owner, Victor Jarbo.

“When we first opened in January, we brought in local talent to perform,” Jarbo said. “Some weekends we would have good music and other’s not so much.”

Kevin B.F. Burt will be a regular performer at Bobby’s, and Jarbo says that, starting July 1, they plan to bring in bands from all over the country.

In addition to hosting live music, Bobby’s has a full menu (Jarbo notes that it’s the only restaurant in North Liberty that serves “Broasted Chicken”). Those familiar to Eggy’s interior can expect to see some changes as the restaurant has undergone renovations.
