• Welcome To My Music Home

    My name is Rob Glassman, born in New Haven, CT in 1966, and currently living in Connecticut. I am a percussionist, vocalist, and rhythm guitarist, currently performing live in clubs around New England, as well as writing music at home.
    I am available for hire as a percussionist/vocalist for live or studio work. I also offer DJ services, sound consulting, as well as song-jingle writing.

    Rob Glassman Music is also a link to where I am playing, as well as a connection to recent shows, including audio and video links, setlists, photos, and much more!

    Currently I am making music with these fun bands below, but also available for future endeavors, studio work, or whatever comes along.

  • 1. RGB – The Rob Glassman Band (Guitar/vocals)

    RGB is a Classic Rock Jam-Band, playing not only the music of the The Grateful Dead, Jerry Garcia, and the music they covered, but also a whole lot more. RGB setlists often cater to the patrons at a venue, as well as the venue itself, thus the band aims to please.
    ACOUSTIC RGB is an option for happy hours, smaller venues, breweries, Sunday gigs, and as an opening act.
    RGB and ACOUSTIC RGB play fairs, festivals, clubs, and private events around the Northeast and beyond.

    -————————————
    Growing up I loved R & B and Motown, and a whole lot more, including classic rock and even disco for a time. Watching music shows like American Bandstand, Soul Train, and MTV also had a big influence on me.
    Then in high school I went to my first Grateful Dead concert, and was hooked! I began seeing shows, touring, collecting tapes, and all that came along, including learning about bands such as every one of the bands that played Woodstock, and this led to others like Bob Dylan, The Radiators, The Neville Brothers, The Meters, Phish, Widespread Panic, and Branford Marsalis, which opened my ears and love for jazz legends like the late Stanley Turrentine, Sonny Rollins, Miles Davis, David Sanborn, Ornette Coleman, and many more.
    After seeing the Grateful Dead, especially watching their two drummers, Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzman, I became interested in taking on percussions, however more of a fun thing to do than anything else. I soon started to play a wooden tone box back in the late 80’s, and then began to sit in with a few bands. After returning from living on the island of Maui in 1991, I purchased a pair of Green CPs by LP, followed by a pair of mini LPs, as well as a pair of Matador Bongos. All of which I still own and play today. I also added blocks, bells, symbols, and scaled-down rack, and began to play out with various blues bands around New Haven during the 90s. In the late 90’s I decided to take playing guitar a little more seriously, and began teaching myself, of course with a little help from some close friends. Soon I formed a band, began writing music, and playing out more often.
