One of Canada’s finest trombonists, Bob started playing trombone at the age of ten. Studies at Humber College, the University of British Columbia and Northwestern University in Chicago garnered him Bachelor and Masters degrees in trombone performance. For several years Bob worked in Vancouver as an in demand session and freelance musician, performing with artists such as Natalie Cole, the O’Jays, the Temptaions, and the Vancouver and Victoria Symphonies and Operas. He also recorded with the Vancouver Ensemble of Jazz Improvisation, the West Coast Jazz Orchestra, Aerosmith, Charlotte Diamond and the Payolas, as well as on numerous film and television soundtracks. In 1993 Bob re-located to the mountain town of Revelstoke where he has taught music for the past twelve years, as well as remaining active as a performer. He is a regular member of the Okanagan, Kamloops and Cranbrook Symphony Orchestras , as well as the leader of the Bob Rogers Jazz Trio, which has performed to great acclaim at festivals and venues in Vernon, Kamloops, Panorama Resort and Revelstoke. The Bob Rogers trio, consiting of Bob on trombone, bassist Shannon Sternloff, and Trevor Wallach, drums, draws on their diverse and eclectic backgrounds to play a wide variety of jazz styles, from swing and classic jazz standards to funk and rock fusion.
