Chirp Cafe Live Music Series Presents: Robin Gunns
Robin Gunns worked for Blues reissue label Yazoo Records as a teenager. From the 78 RPM record era, to Chicago blues, rockabilly, folk, British invasion, and Top 40 radio that brought together the best pop sounds from Motown to Nashville to Haight Ashbury - Robin Gunns blends these influences into compositions that are musically rich, lyrically irreverent, and true ear worms. Long-time Nashville/Texas journeyman guitarist Rick Gordon calls Robin Gunns’ work “the epitome of unique … it’s got bits of genius … and should be heard by a lot more people. I recommend everyone have a good long listen” (ReverbNation).
Robin plays in the NY area with talented local players, including his occasionally-assembled band, The Flesh Ripping Weasels. Robin sings all vocals and plays all instruments on the recorded versions of his original compositions (available for purchase atRobinGunns.bandcamp.com). Lead vocals on “Comin’ Up Hard” are performed by Isabella Strangelove. Recordings are available on major distribution platforms, and these as well as Youtube videos of performances are all linked through his website,https://www.fleshrippingweasels.com.
