Bob Ross Bob Ross

My career in music began when I was 11 years old. I started playing trumpet and continued for 7 years. I began playing guitar at 14 and have been playing for 12 years. In 2008 I graduated from Morehead State University with a Bachelor of Music and in 2010 from The University Of The Arts in Philadelphia, PA, with a Masters degree in Jazz Studies.

I have had the opportunity of studying under several great teachers including Ray Ross, Glenn Ginn, Gordon Towell, Steven Snyder, Tom Giacabetti, Mike Kennedy, Ben Schachter, Don Glanden, Richard Lawn, Jimmy Bruno, and Pat Martino.

After finishing college I moved to Cincinnati, Ohio, and began performing as a solo jazz guitarist. Shortly thereafter in 2011 I started a local jazz group called Sound Infusion with vibraphonist Mark McCafferty. When not performing under the name Sound Infusion, you can catch me in a variety of setups that include duo, trio, quartet, and quintet. Some more notable performance locations include The Blue Wisp, The Celestial, The Greenwich, Chez Nora, The Symphony Hotel, Marty's Hops and Vines and a variety of festivals as well as weddings. Not only can you catch me live, but you can also check out my debut album entitled “Arriving”.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
