"A stunning guitarist with killer licks and a fine blues rockfeel..." - Jazz M.
Pretty good kudos for Rob Tognoni, Australian-Italian who was first inspired by seeing AC/DC at the tender age of 14 in 1974.
Rob's first band, formed in 1986, was called the Outlaws, they became the Desert Cats in 1990.
Australian slide-guitarist Dave Hole gave Rob his first big break; he heard Tognoni's music in 1994 and helped him to get a record contract with the Dutch label Provogue/Mascot Records. This was Rob's international breakthrough.
Hole produced Rob's first CD "Stones And Colours", which was released through Europe in 1995. It was an immediate success and received critical acclaim. The follow up CD "Headstrong" (1997) and 'The Ironyard' (2006) have also gained a laerge cult following
Rob Tognoni's new album 'Blues Boulevard' is due for release 4 August 2008
