Rob Drabkin Tickets - Rob Drabkin Tour

Rob Drabkin Tour Schedule

The music industry would not be the same without local musicians working hard as part of their local music scene and becoming hometown heroes before moving on to superstardom and international acclaim. One musician who took this path and reaped the benefits of such action is Rob Drabkin, a Denver, Colorado favorite who began his musical career in earnest at the age of 22 after graduating from Trinity University in San Antonio where he had studied Spanish and molecular biology. He began performing and recording around the Denver area after being inspired while spending some time with his musician father on vacation in New York. Upon Rob's return to Denver he became an integral part of the Denver music scene and quickly became a hometown favorite. He recorded live albums at one of the most popular venues in Denver, the Bluebird Theater which were huge hits locally and helped Rob Drabkin earn a name for himself in the country at large. Fortunately for Rob Drabkin's Denver fans, the musician will be making a highly anticipated return to his favorite venue, the Bluebird Theater in January 2014. Friday, January 17th will see the celebratory all-star concert Rob Drabkin's Birthday Bash in which Rob and several of his closest musician friends will be performing all of your favorite songs and the local crowd can be expected to be more enthusiastic than ever.


About the Artist

Although his father was a professional jazz musician for three decades, Rob Drabkin was intent on studying science and looking forward to a career as a medical doctor until he spent time with his father and some of his fellow Berklee School of Music graduates while on a family vacation. After singing with his father's friends, Rob felt drawn to a career in music and gave up on science, instead deciding to focus on his singing and songwriting craft much to the benefit of music lovers everywhere.


Breakthrough

On January 9, 2012 Rob Drabkin was booked to play a show at Bluebird Theater in Denver, Colorado and this would prove to be the performance that would send his career skyrocketing. On that night he chose to play a night of brand new music as well as to cover Paul Simon's classic album Graceland in its entirety. The performance was recorded and released as an album titled "Live At The Bluebird Theater 1.19.12." Word about the legendary performance as well as copies of the album spread and Rob Drabkin's popularity grew dramatically seemingly over night. Soon he was being invited by clubs all over the country to headline shows which would quickly sell out and he even headlined at the legendary Boulder Theatre as well as scored an opening spot at the world renowned Red Rocks Amphitheatre. The album eventually peaked at number 12 on the CMJ charts and firmly established Rob Drabkin as one of the most original voices in rock and roll music and a force to be reckoned with in the industry.


The Experience

You have been waiting for months for this night to come and finally as the lights lower you begin to see the beloved Rob Drabkin making his way out onto the stage. The crowd erupts in applause as Rob picks up his guitar and approaches the mic. A hush falls over the crowd as Rob thanks them and launches into a fan favorite like She Comes and Goes, Little Steps, Girl From Country Floors, or Rise at Sea. The crowd once again erupts and sings and dances along to hits throughout the night. Always one to surprise the crowd, perhaps Rob Drabkin sprinkles in some new songs throughout the set, or decides to cover songs by some of the biggest names in the history of music, as he did on that memorable night when he covered an entire Paul Simon album. No two shows are ever the same for Rob Drabkin as he has surrounded himself with some of the best musicians in Colorado and they often add improvisational flourishes to all of your favorite songs. The high energy output from the band translates perfectly to the crowd and you spend the entire night dancing and singing aling.


Trivia

Rob Drabkin alternates between playing solo shows and full band shows and no matter which show you happen to catch you are in for a treat. His live band is made up of some of the best and most prolific musicians in the Denver scene including Brian McRae, Bijoux Barbosa, Eric Moon, and Dave Preston. It was not until he was 22, on that fateful night with his father and his friends jamming that Rob Drabkin first sang into a microphone, changing his life forever. Rob has performed several times on KBCO as well as had songs in heavy rotation on Sirius radio. His music is the perfect mix of rock and AAA radio music.
