Rob Koritz: Drums
Rob was classically trained at the University of Arizona before realizing there was little career opportunity in classical percussion. After some travel time in Europe (including 1990 Dead Tour) he resumed his studies, getting a degree in Jazz Studies at Webster University in his hometown, St. Louis MO.
Over the next 9 years, his musical career including everything from original bands to Dead, jazz, classical, country, zydeco, a samba troupe doing corporate gigs, and way too many wedding gigs.
Rob also started a 'team building through drumming' workshop called the "Percussion Discussion," which he still does in his off time, as well as playing with local acts in St. Louis and with some folks from Austin, TX from time to time.
