Santa Barbara Guitar Collective:   Robbie and Mike, are the heart of the Santa Barbara Guitar Collective (SBGC). Their diverse backgrounds meld into one as they bring you the rich musical heritage that is World Music, offering everything from intricately arranged classical guitar ensemble pieces to upbeat, artistic expression of traditional, dance-rhythm music and masterful improvisations. Includes rumba, tango, gypsy, Latin jazz, and more! Little bit from Latin America, Spain and Eastern Europe and generally everywhere all at once.
Featuring original music in their repertoire, they also bring you music you know and love from groups such as the Gipsy Kings, Buena Vista Social Club, and Santana.

Performance: Jim Hill Art Works Opening Reception

I'm honored to be performing guitar at Jim Hill's art opening on Wednesday, February 10, 5:30-7:00 PM. His art is really incredible. Jim was an end of life counselor for a number of years at Hospice SB, and his art is reflective of that in a dark yet humorous way. It is very deep and brilliant work. He is also a close friend of mine and a former guitar student. So, there is a great musical and artistic connection that will drive the passion of my music performance. I highly recommend you visit the Leigh Block Gallery to view the exhibit (through April 29)- at, and proceeds benefit Hospice of Santa Barbara, 2050 Alameda Padre Serra, Suite 100, Santa Barbara 93103.
