Starting out as a classically trained guitarist at the age of 11, Rob Arenth attended the Alabama School of Fine Arts in the 8th grade. This path continued in high school when he won the prestigious “Louis Armstrong Jazz Award,” which helped facilitate a full music scholarship to Seminole College in Orlando, under the teachings of jazz great Dr. Bill Hinkle.
Performing as a jazz guitarist in many outfits while attending college, Rob honed his skills and developed a “no fear” approach to all styles of music. His extensive training as a guitarist only complements his other instruments skills which include bass, keyboards and percussion. Influences like George Benson, Larry Carlton, Eddie Van Halen, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Steve Vai set the path of Rob’s original style and musical direction. The voyage strengthened while touring nationally with members of England’s UB40 and south Florida’s Nori Nori and Black Bean Soup.
