Leon Redbone

Leon Redbone (born Dickran Gobalian, August 26, 1949) is a singer-songwriter and guitarist specializing in jazz, blues, and Tin Pan Alley classics. Recognized by his Panama hat, dark sunglasses, and black tie, Redbone first appeared on stage in Toronto, Canada in the mid-1970s.

Redbone's concerts blend performance, comedy, and skilled instrumentals. Recurrent gags involve the influence of alcohol and claiming to have written works originating well before he was born. He sang the theme to the television series Mr. Belvedere and has released sixteen albums.

On May 19, 2015 on his web site, his publicist announced his retirement from performing and recording.
