ABOUT

I'm an experienced and working trombonist in the Tampa, Lakeland area. E-mail trombonerob,or call 813-719-0025.I'm a strong reader, able to fill in on the spot for sub gigs and to work with or without arrangements. I'm a strong soloist and know when to lay back and how to fill without distracting or playing over what is important in the music. I'm very comfortable in crossover styles, funk music, whatever is needed. I've freelanced throughout Florida for about 20 years, working for companies such as Disney, Carnival Cruise Lines, for musical theater companies, and in jazz combo and big band work.
