ABOUT ROBERT ANTHONY ROBINSON–
1st born grandson from a big familly, all of whom were musicians, Robert was going to band rehearsals since he can remember.at 10 he started to play guitar,drums and keyboards,by 12 he was cutting his teeth on “CCR” and Skynyrd. “A half black kid with an afro playin’ in his uncle’s country rock band.” Time passed and Robert put together some of his first bands, Screamer, Pegasus, Archer, Screaming fetus, Fade to black, Passion Fatal and finally Love Lode, his most successful endeavor to date. After Love Lode broke up there was a period of soul searching. Sick of being “that guitar player that plays for…”, he decided it was time to front his own band and finally be who he was supposed to be.
It took some time to find the right players: Bryce Van Patten (from Babylon, Wild Dogs and his own label Man In Black Music) on rhythm guitar, keys, programming, engineer and production duties. Robert’s best friend from high school, Ted Behm from Anger Management shredding on Bass. Another long time friend and collaborator, local legend Dan Carlson from Love Lode on drums. The line up is now set in stone. Let the ones with vision stand on it to witness the new, let the blind be crushed beneath it, never knowing what they missed.
In May 2016 Ed Gorman, and Ron Krein disbanded from another group to start a new venture called MLSD, and found a singer, and drummer. The singer left the band soon after, and in came Stu Marrs. Since then we added two more guitarist, Brian Phillips, and Brian Copeland into the mix, then came our new drummer Jaesin Drake. The band has made leaps in the short time together, and has opened for the likes of Don Dokken, Stephen Percy, and Phil Lewis. As they run through there shows, they have been one of the favorites in the area, and quickly gaining word of mouth recognition. Now released a demo with Ron Krein filling in on drums due to unforeseen circumstances, the demo was completed in only 15 hours total to be reproduced in time for the Namm Convention. In fact, the copies had to be overnight delivered to the hotel in Anaheim, California. The dedication of the members has been proven, and expectations are high…not only in the band, but also by its peers, and fan base.
As the band quickly books for springtime, there is high expectations for this hard grinding soul searching band of rockers. First chance you are able to get to one of their powerful wall of sound Rock shows, you should do so…. Piece out Rockers!!
