Guitar & Bass
Rob Walker started playing guitar in 1966 at the age of ten. He majored in music at Middle Georgia College in Cochran. During his second year at college he became a member of the southern rock band, Stillwater. The band was soon signed to Capricorn Records in Macon, Georgia and by 1977 their single "Mindbender" received radio airplay across the USA and Europe. The song, penned by Stillwater's producer Buddy Buie and Rob Walker reached a chart position in the USA of #43 in Billboard Magazine.
When Stillwater disbanded in 1984, Rob joined the United States Air Force. He was first assigned to play guitar with the Air Force Band of New England, Pease Air Force Base, New Hampshire. As his career progressed, he also worked as a member of the Band of the United States Air Forces in Europe, the United States Air Force Band of the Pacific - Asia, and the Band of the United States Air Force Reserve.
During his time in the Air Force, Rob performed on guitar in a diversity of styles ranging from Pop, to Jazz, to Country and Rhythm and Blues. He has performed on stage with several renowned recording artists, including: Amy Grant, Vince Gill, Take 6, John Popper (of Blues Traveller), Gordon Goodwin, Melba Moore, and Aaron Neville.
One way Rob has given back to his community is by passing his skills to others wanting to learn. Since 2010 he has been teaching private lessons at Warner Robins Music.
