Among other achievements, his song, “A Million Miles Away” won top honors in Billboard Song Contest, and in 2015 the Madison Area Music Association awarded Robert with the Lifetime Legacy Award for songwriting. He has had success with his bands, Boys Town, The Moon Gypsies, and The Rowdy Prairie Dogs and many remember him from his time hosting The Sunday Jams at Schenk’s Corner (518 consecutive Sundays).
Over the years Robert J. has shared the stage with many well known artists including The Beach Boys, Taj Mahal, The Subdudes, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Delbert McClinton, LeAnn Rimes, John Eddie, Paul Thorn and many more. Recently, Robert released his patriotic protest song and video, America (Oh Say Can You See).
