Rob Bellis Guitar and VocalsHi, I'm Rob, one of the guitarists and vocalists in The Bootleggers. I'm the new boy of the band with only 5 years under my belt.

I felt very honoured to be asked to play for The Bootleggers, and to this day, very proud of who we are, and what we do on stage. It has given me the platform to do what I love to do: play great music with great musicians.

I first picked up a guitar in 1979 as a very young boy, and never put it down. At first I studied classical and moved on to more contemporary styles, particularly Blues, which of course fits many genres. I grew up with Punk, New Wave and Rock, and much of the original music I was involved in through the 80's to the 2000's was of those genres: from Spring Heel'd Jack, through to Carnival, Electrascope and Cool Canasta.

My musical tastes have widened over the years and I hope they influence me somewhat. From earlier years I love Robbie Robertson of The Band, Free's Paul Kossoff, Mick Ronson of Bowie and Mott the Hoople, and The Eagles' Joe Walsh. I'm inspired by the folk sounds of John Martyn and to more contemporary producers such as T Bone Burnett.

Perhaps the biggest satisfaction for me being a part of the Bootleggers is seeing the sheer enjoyment we bring to thousands of people each year, sometimes the fever pitch is just amazing.
