“From swing to ballads and Latin to rock & roll, Robbins can come up with something to get even the grumpiest person’s foot tapping.” Face magazine
At the age of sixteen, Rob began his musical career as a pianist/vocalist in the lounge at Lakewood Theater, the oldest theater in the State of Maine. Headliners such as Milton Berle & Della Reese found their way to the lounge after their evening’s performance where they gathered around the piano giving Rob some pointers on how to entertain & capture an audience. Since that summer in 1978, Rob has performed in first-rate hotels, resorts & restaurants from Maine to Florida & in-between.
Rob's impressive repertoire & versatility in styles of Pop, Jazz/Swing, Rock, light classics & more earned him the title “Portland’s Piano Man”. He led his back-up band for Jay Leno’s performances and also performed for First Lady Barbara Bush in Kennebunkport. In addition, he had his own house band at the Sheraton Hotel & the original Valle's Steak House in the Portland area. He held four successful summer seasons in Harbour Town on Hilton Head Island, S.C. and then began what would become a ten year winter engagement at the Colony Hotel in Delray Beach, FL and ten summer seasons at the Bethel Inn in Maine.
Rob resides in Saco, Maine. He travels throughout New England and has currently finished his first summer season at The Poland Spring Resort in Poland Spring Maine. To learn more please visit: www.RobRobbins.com
