My name is Robb, multi-instrumentalist and jazz drumming aficionado.
Proficient and expert in nearly all styles of drumming, I've been playing, recording, and touring in the Twin Cities since 2007.
I draw on a massive list of musicians and influences, and have played with some of the best the TC has to offer including Jiselle McCollum, Better Years, The Darners, Narco States, Old Desert Road, and award-winning Parachute Pandas. I'm also first-call for Grammy-winning artist Hiydat Khan of Melodic Intersect.
Lately, I've been focusing heavily on trio and combo jazz configurations, playing now with my regular groups "Reflector" and "Omerta" out of St. Paul.
You can reach out to me here or at lawrencelauer, I am always looking for a new project to help out. The domain starts with G and rhymes with "beemail".
