Background

Rob's initial passion for music occurred on Sunday February 9, 1964, at 8 p.m. while he sat mesmerized in front of a small black & white television set.  That's when the Beatles made their first American debut on The Ed Sullivan Show!  

 

Since then, Rob Henrichon has been studying guitar and performing as a solo, in small trios, quartets, a duo with James Mee, Blue Jay Way band, Satin and Steel - a nine piece horn band, and also Union Street, a wedding based band.

 

Though he hails from Rutland, VT he has performed across the USA from Vermont to California, performing and doing studio work both as a player and a producer. His guitar work spans jazz, country, rock, and blues. He had the good fortune in the mid seventies to study with two top jazz greats, Barry Galbraith on the east coast, and Tony Rizzi in California. While in southern California, Rob also taught guitar classes at Orange Coast College.

 

In the late seventies, he studied theory and arranging through the  Berklee Correspondence Course. In the early eighties, while performing on Block Island Rhode Island, Rob wrote music and jingles for AT&T during the highly acclaimed "Reach Out and Touch Someone" campaign with an incredible acoustic trio by the name of "Triple Treat."

 

Rob has fronted Blood Sweat and Tears and the Little Feat Band with the Satin and Steel nine-piece horn group, and has also shared the stage with Tower of Power and also Leon Russell.

 

"Music keeps the soul alive, and playing with various people in new environments always gives me a fresh perspective to the music! It's also a fun and challenging experience."

 

In 2005 Rob consulted with the Stafford Vocational School in Rutland VT. to implement a sound design studio that would support their existing jazz curriculum. He also taught various classes there, including web design, and guitar.

 

Rob presently resides in Rutland, VT. and owns and operates "On Track interactive," which specializes in website building, creating multi-media, web based applications, and internet consulting.
