Rob Tognoni (AU)
Hans musikalske rødder er blues, bluesrock og klassisk rockmusik, men han tilføjer også mange andre farver til paletten for at opnå sin særlige lyd. En lyd der leder tankerne hen på navne som Cream, Hendrix, BB King og AC/DC. Rob er mere end blot en musiker på scenen. Han er en performer i særklasse med mere end 35 års erfaring fra scener verden rundt og mere end 20 albums bag sig.
Så er du til bluesrock og powerblues og elsker du en god guitarsolo, så vil du både nyde hans tekniske formåen og varierede guitarspil. Rob fortjener om nogen en plads på linje med andre af bluesscenens helt store guitarhelte.
Vidste du i øvrigt at Rob Tognoni er fra samme by som Kronprinsesse Mary? Han optrådte til Rock'n'Royal i Parken i anledning af Frederik og Marys bryllup i 2004. Her spillede hans bl.a. Australiens nationalhymne side om side med Jacob Binzer fra D-A-D, som spillede den danske. Se på Youtube her.
Koncerten er arrangeret af Music House Brønshøj med støtte fra Brønshøj-Husum Lokaludvalg.

"Tognoni's energetic power-blues-rock sound moves between sexy macho and straight-line Rocker, he is quick, fast-paced, creative, virtuosic and expressive.

Jazz FM, London - GB
"The audience were captured by the rhythm and some people started dancing, but the majority just stared upon Tognoni's hands. His fingers were moving with breath taking speed over the strings of his white guitar. Particularily during his solo parts, people were just stunned and left with their mouths wide open due to his high precision guitar playing. Rob meanwhile stayed totally relaxed, just as if guitar playing was the most natural thing in the world..."
