Bob Lanzetti is a Brooklyn, NY based professional guitarist, composer, producer, and educator who has performed and recorded with many artists throughout the NYC area as well as played in over 40 countries with the three time Grammy® Award-Winning jazz/funk collective, Snarky Puppy.
Growing up on the Jersey Shore, Bob had the fortune of studying music with NYC area based guitar greats Chris Buono, David “Fuze” Fiuczynski, and Vic Juris. In 2000, Bob moved to Denton, TX to further his education at the University of North Texas where he earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Jazz Studies. In addition to his studies he was fortunate enough to get involved in the thriving R&B and Gospel music scene in the DFW area as well as meet the musicians who would go on to form the core of Snarky Puppy.
As a member of Snarky Puppy, Bob has had the opportunity to contribute as a writer, arranger, and guitarist, playing on every recorded release and performing all over the world. The Pups have earned three GRAMMY Awards to date.
Since 2006, Bob has been residing in Brooklyn, NY. There he has become an in-demand session guitarist performing and recording with many artists including Tommy Sims, Bokanté, Michelle Willis, Cory Henry, Ghost-Note (Robert “Sput” Searight/Nate Werth), Lucy Woodward, Musiq Soulchild, Bilal, Banda Magda, Underground System, and many others.
In addition to sideman work, Bob writes, records, produces, and performs his own original compositions with his quintet. His debut record, Whose Feet are These That are Walking, was released September 2017.
“There are plenty of talented artists out there, but what sets Jean Rohe apart are the suppleness of her voice, the integrity of her vision, and the grace she shows in her wide-ranging journeys across the musical landscape.” –John Platt, WFUV New York
Jean Rohe sings and plays multi-lingual original music of the Americas, North and South. Whether solo or with her genre-bending trio, Jean brings the full breadth of her stylistic attractions to bear, exploring the intersections of American folk music, jazz, Brazilian and Afro-Peruvian traditions. The product of both a nurturing folk music community in her childhood, as well as the vibrant New York improvised music scene, it is not unusual to find Jean and in a downtown jazz club inviting a disarmed audience to sing boisterous choruses. Likewise, her sophisticated songwriting and arranging has found a home at folk music festivals around the country. Jean has performed everywhere from Birdland to the National Theater in Cuba; from New York City’s own Living Room to the Montreux Jazz Festival, where her refreshingly earnest performance won her the audience prize in 2006. She has appeared as a special guest with the Billboard-charting alt-country group Calexico and performs with Liam Robinson in the American/Irish traditional duo, Robinson & Rohe.
