Rob McKinney


Place of Birth: Charlottesville, Virginia. The home of the Dave Matthews Band and Thomas Jefferson (but not in that order).

Hobbies, Interests: I consider myself a music man to the bone. I love playing my guitar and bass, listening to all types & styles of music, especially live blues. I'm a die-hard Redskins fan, who has died-hard the last few years.

Family Facts: Raised in the Washington, D.C. area, I moved to Winter Park, Florida in 1990. I am a married to my lovely wife Debbie and am the father of two, Evan and Christopher (seen above).

Most Influenced By: Most influenced by my Mom and Dad and later unduly influenced by Anheuser-Busch!

Other Stuff: I hope to help make Smokestack Lightnin' a force to reckoned with in the blues world.

Favorite Quote: "The blues is pain, grief, sorrow, sweat, sex, joy, laughter, tears, loneliness, the stars, the moon, the sun, the wind and the fire when you're dead ass broke." ~ Big Bill Morganfield
