Rob Whitlock
Rob has been playing the B-3 since age eight, when his father, a well respected jazz guitarist, encouraged him to do impromptu concerts in their family living room for professional musician friends.
 
The young musician quickly learned how to make a living by gigging around the area on keyboards as well as bass.
 
After having played with great musicians like Jaco Pastorius, Randy Berensen, Othello Molineaux, Carl Fontana, Joe Williams, Bill Watrous and "The Peter Graves Big Band", Rob relocated to California at age 25.
 
In California, Whitlock became involved with some gifted musicians and formed a band playing contemporary jazz by groups like "The Brecker Brothers", "Yellow Jackets" and performed songs by writers Victor Feldman, John Scofield and Don Grolnick, as well as their own originals. During that time Max Bennett of "Tom Scott and the LA Express" asked Rob to join his originals band, of which he is currently still a member. Not long after, he began touring with "The Jazz Crusaders" through the US and Europe. With AJ Croce, while playing B-3 he toured Scandanavia, as well as many other destinations with the Dazz Band and Fattburger for festivals and concerts.
 
Rob has been on anywhere from Kathie Lee Gifford and Rita Coolidge, to Fattburger, Pat Kelley, Wayne Johnson and Max Bennett albums, ranging from pop to the many jazz genres. He has also been on recordings with legendary musicians like Vinnie Colaiuta, John Guerin, Joe Sample, Russell Ferante, Tom Scott, Warren Wiebie, Anthony Jackson and including greats Jeff Lorber, Will Lee, Bill Berg, Jimmy Johnson, Greg Bissonette, and Othello Molineaux.
