Jazz Club – Bob Rogers Combo
One of Canada’s finest trombonists, Bob started playing trombone at the age of ten. Studies at Humber College, the University of British Columbia and Northwestern University in Chicago garnered him Bachelor and Masters degrees in trombone performance. For several years Bob worked in Vancouver as an in demand session and freelance musician, performing with artists such as Natalie Cole, the O’Jays, the Temptaions, and the Vancouver and Victoria Symphonies and Operas. He also recorded with the Vancouver Ensemble of Jazz Improvisation, the West Coast Jazz Orchestra, Aerosmith, Charlotte Diamond and the Payolas, as well as on numerous film and television soundtracks.
In 1993 Bob re-located to the mountain town of Revelstoke where he has taught music for the past twelve years, as well as remaining active as a performer.
