Dad | Rob's dad was a sought after Jazz guitarist in West Virginia at a young age. Bob could also play some mean bluegrass pedal steel with his Uncle "Windy" Hanson who held the title of "West Virginia State Fiddling Champion".


Bullet Park | Bullet Park was Rob's first band at age 14 with his best friends, Rich Carsello & Dave Schrenk. They also had a"Blood Sweat & Tears" type horn band called "Freefield".


Jaco & the Early Years | Jaco knew Rob's dad before he knew Rob. After they met, with friends in common, Rob found himself over at Jaco's house listening to the yet unreleased "Word of Mouth" album. Jaco played one of the new songs with Rob & others at friend Bernie's recital for college & hid behind a curtain to suprise the unsuspecting crowd. Bernie's guitar teacher was Rob's dad...

Amber & Heather | Amber & Rob met in college in music classes in Miami, Florida. Rob found Amber her first steady gig with a busy band in South Florida, which launched a long career in music, in spite of her father's counsel. Little did they know at the time that four years later they would be married with a baby girl on the way and plans to move to California. Their daughter Heather is now a fine bassist & songwriter in her own right. One of her songs appears on Amber's second cd, "The Circle".

John Georgini
led Miami Dade's Community College Jazz Band. When he met Rob of 19 yrs. old, he gave him a chair on bass and on keyboards and Rob rotated with two other musicians on those instruments. Mr. G., as they called him was a great session player in Miami at the time. He can be heard on many Bee Gee hits as well as Bobby Caldwell's "What You Won't Do For Love" and K.C. & The Sunshine Band. He also allowed Amber to sing in the college jazz band with the great Bill Watrous on trombone. John is on the Sketchin' 2 cd.
