Musician Rob Barteletti is one of those kind of guys who can't help but exude humour and creativity. I bet he was a great teacher. Rob was diagnosed with Parkinson's. Now his life has taken a different road.
Update: SHAKERS BALL TONIGHT AT THE ALADDIN. Rob Stroup who produced the album, says it was a chance to get Rob Barteletti's lyrics and songs out there.
We featured this album a few weeks ago, when it released. But I wanted to circle back and feature another track in our nightly Spotlight. Storm Large doing Rob's "Voices" is a great story of one life touching and inspiring another.
The album is a nice idea for your holiday gift-giving as well. See more info below, on where to snag your copy.
SHAKERS is a collection of songs from Rob Barteletti. Invited to sing on this collection? Musicians like Storm Large, Pete Droge, Bart Ferguson, Fernando. Rob teamed up with Burgerville to make it happen. Interesting story how THAT came to be. Listen to podcast to hear about the fortuitous series of events. The album is available at all Burgervilles, and all profits will be donated to The Brian Grant Foundation. More HERE.
Rob Barteletti told me that after the Parkinson's diagnosis, he had to retire from his teaching job. but rather than let the diagnosis stop him, he dug into his music deeper than ever.
SHAKERS is the result of a project Rob and his friend Rob Stroup began mulling about 2 years ago. Since than a lot of great people have come together to make this disc a good one. LISTEN TO OUR CONVERSATION BELOW.
