Having performed with such artists as Frankie Lymon's Teenagers, Little Anthony
and The Imperials, The Tokens, Larry Chance and The Earls, The Passions, The Dimensions, Richard Street's Temptations Review,
Felix Cavaliere and The Young Rascals, The Happenings, Lou Christie, The Angels, and having made appearances in the
movie, "The Old Man and the Seymore", and on television with "Fox and Friends",
the RB Express is taking the East Coast by storm! In January 2006 and again in 2007, the RB Express left their homes on the
Jersey Shore (temporarily, of course!) to spread the word of doo-wop in the Pacific Islands of Hawai'i, for
a 10 day, 5 concert tour. In December 2009, the RB Express "invaded" the island of St. Maarten
to weave their own brand of musical harmonies and funny antics, making their first international debut.
The RB Express was formed in March of 2005 from individual soloists expressing a love and respect for the music of days gone
by. The members of the RB Express add their own touch to songs we’ve all heard on the radio. They have completed two
albums, “On the Scene”, and "Back on Track", and will soon be returning to the studio to record their
long-awaited 3rd album in the hope of continuing to spread the gospel of doo-wop to fans both old and new.
Be sure to check back often as our schedule is constantly growing, and as always, "We'll see you on the road!".

an accomplished musician, playing various instruments. I have a degree in Music from Oklahoma State University. My range is
three octaves, but bass is my game. As a songwriter, I have penned two hit songs in the Country/Western genre, (Coca Cola
Cowboy, and New Patches), both sung by Mel Tillis. Furthering my songwriting abilities is also one of my wishes. Creating
The RB Express, meeting countless people and performing in all types of venues has been a rewarding experience.
