Hi! Thanks for visiting my site.

I'm a professional musician, singer, writer, producer and DJ.

I perform solo, or with my band,

my original songs and classics from

the 60's, 70's, 80's and 90's.


DJ Retro Rob

I specialise in 70's & 80's music

for events and parties.



I specilise in helping solo or small acts record and realise their materials potential.

I'm able to work with most small venue set ups.

I have many years experience working with full band and electro acoustic acts. 


I also promote in Reading and run a very successful regular Open Mic night called

Bohemian Night


In my history as a performer, I was the front man of successful prog' rock act



And of course I have my own band


as well as many other creative projects,
