Rob Chaffee

Rhythm & Lead Guitar


As a self-taught guitarist from Southern California, Rob played hundreds of shows in a variety of bands.  His longest lasting group was an original 4-piece band in the jam-band genre that also worked as the backing band for several vocalists with major record label contracts.  Highlights from that time include having his band featured on the front page of the L.A. Times Calendar Section, and playing with members of the Arsenio Hall Show Band, Chaka Khan, Cameo, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Fishbone, and the Lenny Kravitz Band.   To further his career he recently spent several years formally studying jazz composition as well as jazz and classical guitar.  He has relocated to Chicago, where he is now making his first introduction to the Chicago music scene.
