Rob Zinn
Rob Zinn National recording artist and composer Rob Zinn started his career as a side man for many bands in just about every style of music. He decided a few years ago to form his own group and try his hand at writing smooth jazz songs. Rob had never written any songs so this was a brand-new experience for him. Over the course of a year he wrote many songs, 7 of which are on his debut album, Yesterday Again, released in the fall of 2016. Tracks from the album have caught the attention of the smooth jazz industry and have been played on over 90 smooth jazz stations around the world. The single, Yesterday Again, has been a consistent top 50 on many smooth jazz charts and reached as high as #24.

The Rob Zinn Group incorporates elements of smooth jazz, blues, funk, latin, RnB and pop woven around a smooth jazz groove. Rob wants his audience to feel the emotion of his songs. His music comes from his heart and his goal is to touch other people with his melodies, creativity, expression and passion.

Rob is currently writing new material for his next album due to be released in 2018.

When not performing or working on his craft, Rob stays busy in the local recording scene and will be collaborating with other smooth jazz artists in the near future. You can also hear Rob’s trumpet on many episodes of Adam Ruins Everything on TruTV.

Rob loves to entertain his audiences, whether it be an up-tempo funk song or a smooth jazz ballad, you will enjoy the sweet sound of his horn as it transcends and flows with his band.
