Bob Dunn

Bob Dunn is an icon of Western swing music. Dunn joined Milton Brown and His Musical Brownies in 1934. He electrified his guitar with a homemade pickup in 1935 and electrified Southwestern audiences forthwith. He had a brassy sound and used his guitar as a lead, not a chorus instrument. When Milton Brown's band broke up after his death, Dunn served time with Roy Newman and His Boys, Cliff Bruner and His Texas Wanderers and the Hi-Flyers. He formed Bob Dunn's Vagabonds with Leo Raley on electric mandolin, Mancel Tierney on piano, former Blue Ridge Playboy Russell "Hezzie" Bryant on bass and Fritz Kehm on drums. He kept himself busy with session work until the '50s. ~ Megan Lynch
