Rob Eller is a one-man cover band, crooning everything from Dave Mathews to Stephenwolf. Although the tunes are at once identifiable, Eller adds his own unique timbre to every note…and that’s where the magic lies! Rob uses a looping station to produce, ‘live onstage,’ all rhythm guitars, percussion and harmony vocals. Thus, he fills up the room with the sound of a full band, while paying attention to musical dynamics, continually finding new ways to express a song.
