Someone once told Rob that what he does to his guitar is illegal in three states. They meant it as a compliment. They went on to say that "Rob is that perfect combination of complete proficiency combined with a punk rock 'f*** you'". And he took THAT as a compliment too.
Over the years of travel, an important part of both the professional and social side of music has always been the Open Mic scene. One of Rob's first missions was to create an open mic scene from what he'd learned from all across the country.
Since then Rob has been the creator and host of a number of open mic nights in the Washington / Baltimore area, some award-winning, all Loved - he's even spoken at the Library of Congress on the subject of open mics and their effect on American music, the coffeehouse scene and "counter-culture". His open mics have been selected to represent "National Open Mic Night" by Shure Inc and declared one of the best-of DC by DCMusicDownload.com.
