Bob “King B” Fulton has been a performing musician for over forty years, on vocals, guitar, bass, and “blues harp” (harmonica, or “Mississippi saxophone”). Primarily known around Atlanta as the frontman for the JumpKings for the past nearly twenty years, performing in clubs, private parties, weddings, festivals, and corporate functions, he is also a founding member and a past member of the Board of Directors of the Atlanta Blues Society. Bob has also been a member of the Yaarab Shrine Entertainers Unit for the past 10 years, performing at benefits, festivals and the Annual Shrine Circus to benefit the Shrine Children’s Hospitals.
While attending Mississippi State University, Bob performed as bass player and vocalist with the Soul Solution, a band which played at the Straight 8 Jr. in Columbus, MS – a club which also frequently booked stars such as Charlie Rich, Conway Twitty and Jerry Lee Lewis.
One of Bob’s musical compositions, “We The People…200 Years” celebrating the 200th anniversary of the U.S. Constitution, was adopted as a National standard.
Bob is a registered Professional Engineer and licensed Electrician, who retired after over forty years in corporate and federal government service.
From an Atlanta Journal Constitution performance announcement regarding the JumpKings:
“BIG Chicago blues sound from well-seasoned vets. Bob Fulton’s powerful vocals dominate.”
Matt, of Fatt Matt’s Rib Shack, Atlanta, GA
“The JumpKings: Those boys can sure put away some bar-b-q. Helluva band too.”
