Rob started playing at the age of 9, with his father. After years of playing with orchestras and big bands, the choice of making music for a living was an easy one.

Admitted to the Conservatory of Utrecht, he studied with the legendary Piet Noordijk for 5 years. Besides his passion for jazz, he developed an interest in Funk and Dance-music, and is playing that style wholeheartedly until this day.

In the present Rob is mostly active in the Big Band-, Jazz-, DJ-, Funk-, and Studio-scene. Some of the respected and well-known people he has worked with are:

Mark Doyle (founder of Hed Kandi – Fierce Angels)
Steven Quarre (Hed Kandi)
