Robert's music is a blend of styles which flow along the Mississippi River, from blues to country, roots rock & roll to folk. His solo show consists of well crafted original songs and many of the classic tunes we all know. He mixes acoustic guitar(used with a looper), harmonica and soulful vocals to create an authentic sound all his own.

I'm excited for a full schedule of gigs coming up this summer!
There are two very cool gigs coming up in the next few weeks.
MEMORIAL DAY (May 27th) @ Christy's Landing w/ The Moon Gypsies! 2-6pm.
I've been doing this gig for 25 years now and it's one of my all time favorites.
Join us for a great afternoon on the western shores of Lake Waubesa!

The MAMA AWARDS Show at The Capital Theater at the Ovrature Center
on June 9th. Proud to be playing my patriotic protest song,
America (Oh Say Can You See) as one of the featured
artists on this night. If you're a fan of Madison music, there's
no better evening than this to showcase our city's great musical culture.
All proceeds go directly to the MAMA mission of putting instruments in the
hands of kids.
Hope you can make it.
