Bobby Nelson Poe was born on April 13, 1933 and died on January 22, 2011. In the mid 1950s he formed Bobby Poe and The Poe Kats, a rockabilly music band who were connected with Wanda Jackson and Sun Records. He became a song writer, promoter, manager and publisher, forming Kansoma Music Corp. Sue UK leased their recording “Sh’Mon” by Mr Dynamite for release in the UK. He developed “tip sheets” for disc jockeys (identifying records which were expected to do well) and launched a series of Conventions which were very successful. He retired from producing and promoting country music shows in 2005. His son Bobby Poe Jnr has provided Sue Records UK with much valuable information about “Sh’mon”, for which we are most grateful.
