JRobert - Marco Music Man

Florida Fire Fiddler!

Who is this masked man?!

Halloween left-overs?

No, it's a fun new JRobert persona...

It's "JRobert - Florida Fire Fiddler!"

I've played a few Charity events as
the "Fire Fiddler" and I really enjoy the freedom of my character's anonymity.

The "Fire Fiddler" repertoire includes a broad selection of contemporary and classic instrumentals.

I'm ready to step out on a limb with new chops at the drop of a hat!

Watch closely, however, and you'll notice the fancy dance steps are actually elementary Tai Chi moves!

Thanks again, everyone for joining me in this Newsletter!

November Friend - Sabrina Williams

Sabrina Williams came to me as an answer to a prayer..."Dear Lord, please send a genuine Island Songstress!"

I'm double blessed with Sabrina...not only is she a spectacular music artist, but a trusted friend. This proud Jamaican woman is also the most honest, hard working, and compassionate person I have ever met!

Sabrina incorporates her Reggae, R&B, Jazz, Musical Theatre, Dance and Afrocentric background into her way of life. I often see her at the Marco Island YMCA yoga, Tai Chi, and dance classes, all of which she so easily expresses in her performances.

In 1982, she wrote "Where Are You Now?" as a tribute to Bob Marley. Her heartfelt song was responsible for her appearance on Reggae Sunsplash ’91, which aired on Pay Per View Television worldwide and featured, Ziggy Marley, Dennis Brown and Shabba Ranks.

Sabrina's appearance on Jamaica’s "National Pantomimes Show" impressed producer Michael Bennett, actor Ben Vereen and director Chapman Roberts who cast her in "Revelations," a remake of Jesus Christ Superstar.

In the Jazz arena she has performed with Donald Byrd, Monty Alexander, Ernie Ranglin and appeared on Air Jamaica Jazz Festivals, featuring George Benson, Branford Marsalis, Boyz ll Men, Nora Jones.

In January of 2009 Sabrina gave smashing performances at the Jamaica Jazz Festival which featured the great Lionel Richie, The OJays and many other giants.

Sabrina is ready and available for your special celebration at 230 878 8059 or email her atReggaeWomanJM@yahoo.comand visit her web page atSabrina Williams Sonic

Merry Gentlemen


A Million Thanks!

JRobert's performance with John McEuen and former Nitty Gritty Dirt Band member John Cable was a blast!!

In October, we played to an overflowing house at Sarasota's WSLR's Community Radio and Culture Center.

John and John both shared great stories and songs of the early days with Nitty Gritty Dirt Band as the United States first musicians to play behind the Soviet Union's Iron Curtain back in th 1970's.

Thank you, John for moving to Florida and creating such classic acoustic events.

By sharing your history, you make history!

The 2014 Everglades Region CMAA Charity Classic Gala was a stunning success!

This is the Florida Chapter of Club Managers Associatoin of America and was extremely well attended this year at the Bonita Bay Club.

Beautiful people!

I especially enjoyed performing a "Night of Flamenco" guitar for Grey Oaks Country Club...my fingers were flying while keeping up with the Flamenco Dancers!
