Music is about the only thing left that people don't fight over.
Solidly in his second quarter-century as a professional musician, Rob now presides over the piano in Austin and Texas hill country hotels, restaurants, patios, airports, wineries and parties, singing standards and favorites.
Barons Creek Vineyard is Rob's new home away from home. Look for him most every Saturday at this beautiful winery, just a few miles east of Fredericksburg, Texas on WineRoad290.
Pecan Street Brewing, located on the square in Johnson City, was originally the town's hardware store in a WWII quonset hut. Now remodeled to brew a number of tasty beverages and prepare enticing foods, the restaurant houses a stage in the back room with the largest ceiling fan I have ever seen. Pictured is Rob with his traveling upright piano.
Here Rob is seen on the tie-dyed Baldwin piano that he plays at The Ray Benson-Asleep At The Wheel Roadhouse Saloon at the Austin-Berstrom International Airport. Rob also regularly plays other venues within the airport, such as Annie's, Ruta Maya Coffee House, Saxon Pub and Waterloo Records.
