In concert, both Brooks Robertson and John Standefer can delight audiences with guitar solos that feature their own individual styles.
Then, when they combine forces, a whole new sound emerges. It’s like getting three acts in one! Fabulous!!
The protege of Buster B. Jones, Brooks Robertson wowed guitar fans even as a child. At age 14 he appeared on Garrison Keillor's "A Prairie Home Companion", where he won first place in a talent competition for 12-20 year olds. In 2010 he won 1st place in the country category and 2nd place overall in the "Yamaha Six String Theory Guitar Competition" in Los Angeles (judged by Steve Lukather and Lee Ritenour, among others).
In 2012 Brooks received the Horizon Award for young, up and coming guitarists by The National Thumbpickers Hall of Fame, and was recently voted Portland, Oregon's "Best Emerging Artist" by Deli Magazine. Still in his early 20s, Brooks continues perfecting his craft learning new tunes, styles and techniques, as well as composing his own groovy and soulful original music.
Winner of the 2002 National Fingerstyle Guitar Contest and open division winner of the 2004 International Home of the Legends Competition, veteran guitarist John Standefer is a true master of fingerstyle guitar.
John has traveled throughout the U.S. and abroad performing concerts, teaching master classes, and performing and recording with an impressive list of other artists. He is a very versatile musician and has produced many CDs, books and DVDs over the years.
