When Anne and Henning (wedding photos soon!) invited us to watch her brother perform last Friday night we had no idea of the treat we were in for. All she told us was he was playing the guitar at a local coffee shop. There were several bits of information she left out — like Rob’s a very talented and well established performer here in Denver or that her dad would be playing as well. Mostly, she failed to mention Rob’s incredibly fun hair.
It turns out these Friday night events at The Rocky Mountain Roastery in Fraser, Colorado are very popular. The performance started at 7:00, when we got there at 7:10 it was all ready standing room only. Rob, cellist Leslie Michaels were the main entertainment for the evening. But Harry Drabkin (Anne and Rob’s father) joined in on the saxophone making it an family event honoring the wedding couple. The music was amazing and we were honored to be included in the festivities.
You can hear Rob playing here in Denver at the Soiled Dove 01/23/09. For more information go to Rob’s web site.
