Robert Ross @ The Evan Ginzburg Show on
When: Sunday, June 25, 2017
Time: 11AM-1PM EST

For two hours you can hear and see Evan Ginzburg interview, interrogate, grill, and possibly waterboard Robert Ross from 11am to 1pm EST on internet radio. One of the things we may discuss is why it’s called “radio” if the show can actually be SEEN. Anyway, it’s LIVE and anything can happen, and probably will. Robert Ross is a two time NY Music Award winner & NY Blues Hall of Fame inductee, and a vocalist, guitarist, slide guitarist, & harmonica player. Evan Ginzburg is a radio & tv host, film producer, writer, actor, wrestling aficionado, teacher, and all around GREAT guy. Just navigate to: to view the show.

In the event of bad weather please call 609-731-5454 to find out if the show will be cancelled or whether it will go on as scheduled. Speak to Joe.

Note: July 5th, 2017 is my last day in New York, and then I move to Boynton Beach, Florida. I hope to see as many of you as possible before I go. Here's my schedule until then.
And I do hope to come back now and then to see family and friends, and to do a little playing in the coolest blues venues in the city. Until we meet again, be well, and remember, I love you to death and there ain't a damn thing you can do about it.


It is always a good idea to call a venue to confirm that we will in fact be appearing, to check on admission or cover charges, and to find out whether it is necessary to make a reservation. Thank you.

Having a birthday or anniversary bash? Maybe a small dinner party? A large corporate party? Whatever event you are planning consider The Robert Ross Band, Robert Ross & The Jazz-Manian Devils. Or maybe you want something a little more “showbizzy” like Jiggles Giggles & Blues. We can put a package together to suit your entertainment needs. Let's talk. Send us an email reply with “PARTY” in the subject line. We'll get back to you.
