Robert Walter
A founding member of The Greyboy Allstars, Robert splits his time between 20th Congress, The Greyboy Allstars and a robust film soundtrack career. He has performed and recorded with heavyweights like Fred Wesley, Gary Bartz, Skerik, Melvin Sparks, Andy Bey, Reuben Wilson, Harvey Mason, Alec Ounsworth, Anders Osborne, Red Holloway, Chuck Rainey, Phil Upchurch, Mike Clark, Johnny Vidacovich, Mike Gordon and Steve Kimock.
 
In 1999, six years into The Greyboy Allstars, Robert formed Robert Walter's 20th Congress, which featured him on electric piano and Hammond B-3 organ, Dap-Kings Cochemea Gastelum on alto sax, electric sax and flute, Chris Stillwell on bass and Stanton Moore on drums.
 
Robert moved from his native San Diego to New Orleans in 2003, and subsequently reunited with producer Dan Prothero to record Super Heavy Organ with local legends Johnny Vidacovich, James Singleton, Tim Green, and Stanton Moore.
 
In 2013, a move from New Orleans to Los Angeles jump-started Robert's 20th Congress once again. He released Get Thy Bearings, which pushed his organ, piano, Rhodes and synthesizer to the front of a group rounded out by guitarist/bassist Elgin Park, drummer Aaron Redfield, sax players Karl Denson and Cochemea Gastelum, and percussionist Chuck Prada. Since returning to LA, recording film scores has widened the conceptual palate of Robert's work.
 
"A lot of modern music is over-considered, but if you fix every little edge there's no mystery. We didn't monkey around too much, just indulged in our musicalness." It's the same commitment that has made Robert such a live force. The current 20th Congress touring line-up include Simon Lott, Chris Alford, and Victor Little. In April 2015, Robert joined Phish's Mike Gordon as his keyboard/organ player. In September 2018, Walter released Spacesuit, a new studio album by 20th Congress.
