Bobby Bandiera (born October 26, 1952) is an American rock guitarist and singer known in the Jersey Shore sound world.

A longtime fixture of the Jersey Shore sound, Bandiera's appearances with local legends Cats On A Smooth Surface date back to the early 1980s and clubs such as The Stone Pony, when Bruce Springsteen would jump onstage with them on Sunday nights. Bandiera was considered for the guitarist position in the E Street Band for the Born in the U.S.A. Tour in 1984 when Steve Van Zandt left the band, but this position went to Nils Lofgren. In 1985, Bandiera replaced Billy Rush as guitarist for Southside Johnny and The Asbury Jukes. Bandiera has released three solo albums, though they have not been successful, but this is only because of a lack of distribution sources. Bandiera also was a fixture of Springsteen's fabled Asbury Park holiday shows of the early 2000s.
