Robi has been playing the blues since he was twelve years old. He plays bass guitar and sings (lead and backup) and is a published song writer/composer. He has worked with dozens of bands during his career. Just to name a few: Ginger Baker, Tolo Marton, Mia Martini, Fabio Treves, Roberto Ciotti, Ronnie Jones, Cooper Terry, Billy Gregory, Tao Ravao, Claudio Bazzari, James Thompson (sax with the pop star Zucchero) Aida Cooper, Antonello Aguzzi, Andy J Forest (the latter recorded five CDs with Robi). Between concerts, clubs, recordings and television appaerances, he has performed in every far corner of Italy, Europe and in the USA where he was a featured guest singer with the Treves Blues Band at the Memphis in May festival in Memphis, Tennessee. On that occasion, the concert had been recorded and features Robi singing Ray Charles' classic 'Halleluiah I Love Her So'. Now, after about 25 years playing as a sideman or guest with other bands, Robi Zonca has finally decided to form his own touring band which is currently on the road thrilling audiences, amazing friends and baffling the competition. His 2003 debut CD DO YOU KNOW? recieved airplay by more than 250 radio stations in the U.S.A. and the same in Europe where many more radio stations in Italy, U.K.(BBC too!) France, Holland, Spain, Belgium, Sweden, Norway, Germany, Poland and more countries, are playing songs from Robis album.
In these days (may 2005) the band has published his new album:
YOU ALREADY KNOW that in some days has already recieved airplay by the BBC and other stations all around the world.
On summer 2005 Robi has been called in New York City to play at Summer Breeze Festival and for radio interviews in NY and in Los Angeles.
We play live everywhere in the world. Great experience was the Memphis in may festival, the "Summer Breeze" in New York.
