Picture it, Summer 1986, at 4am. while working as a Bartender in a New York Disco. Robb was told to go into the DJ Booth and play music. It was there, that the owner Vince, would spend countless hours teaching Robb how to count beats, analyze energy, rhythm and emotion in order to beat mix two songs so that they sound as one.
Prior to relocating to sunny California, DJ Robb Roberts has lived in New York, Ft. Lauderdale and Chicago and has held many nightclub residencies from the Catskills to New Hope, Pa. He has also toured the Wedding Circuit as a most sought after Wedding DJ and Emcee performing at the finest catering facilities and Country Clubs in the Tri-state area of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut . It is during these travels that he acquired an extreme knowledge of music genres encompassing… Big Band & Swing, Rock & Roll, Ballroom Standards, Motown, Doo Wop, Rock, 80′s New Wave, Dance and World Music. Just a few years earlier Robb gained his dance music knowledge while dancing at the legendary discos of New York City.
The greatest asset that I have learned is the knowledge of how to work a room and make the people respond.
