Want to book Rob for a live show. Here's all you need to know...


Rob Russell on Keyboards

Britain’s Got Talent 2013 Semi-finalist.


Talented, different, humorous and a downright brilliant show!



Rob’s much more than just a vocalist / keyboard player. His spectacular show features:


* Excellent well-delivered vocals *


* Keyboard playing that has to be seen and heard to be believed. Often rated the top instrumentalist on the circuit *


* A big personality with witty, well timed comical banter *


* A huge repertoire featuring songs from the 50s to the latest chart hits, rock n’ roll, reggae, ballads, swing, rock and not forgetting Rob’s trademark spectacular keyboard solos *


* A state of the art P.A system and lights *


* Non-stop movement and costume changes *


* A karaoke-free zone... Rob arranges and programs his own backing tracks *


One of the most sort after and versatile musicians in England, Rob was first seen by club audiences in the UK with the highly rated and award-winning duo: SAMPLE THIS. Prior to this he has worked in many bands both here and in his native South Africa. With a classical music background, he began his career as a player and musical director in orchestras, stage shows, cabaret and even a military band! Soon becoming interested in the pop music scene, he toured South Africa and Zimbabwe with various rock and pop bands while still finding time to study music at the University of South Africa. After moving to England Rob initially enjoyed both live and recording success with the African/rock band WOZANI.


In 1996 he was selected as the first duelling pianist from the north of England for the new Jumpin Jaks venues springing up all over the UK. The duelling piano concept with 2 keyboard player / singers entertaining huge audiences with lively songs and extravagant stage antics has now honed Rob’s act to a new level of professionalism and excellence as well as vastly expanding his repertoire.


Rob was invited to take part in Britain’s Got Talent 2013 as part of the duo: THE DUELLING PIANOS with the act eventually reaching the semi-finals.
