Welcome to the website for Chicagoland musician Robert Broz. Currently drumming for the country band Smoking Gunz, the Doobie Brothers tribute, China Grove. He also works as a freelance artist and church musician as well as maintaining a private teaching practice. A professional musician for over thirty years he has played a wide array of musical styles in both live and studio situations. He has also played with a diverse list of musicians ranging from country music legend Johnny Cash to jazz trumpeter Donald Byrd. 

Totaling well over 100 performances a year, chances are good you'll be able to see Robert at a venue close to you. And you can find me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and SoundCloud.  Be sure to check out the Shows page for a full listing of upcoming events.

Latest News 

Welcome to 2020! It's been awhile since I've updated my site, so I'm glad to welcome you back. The beginning of the year was great, but now everything is derailed with COVID-19. I know we all can't wait for the day when things return to normalcy and we can look forward to a busy and productive 2020. Smoking Gunz continues to bring the finest country music to Chicago and beyond for our 23rd year! We're still going strong with no end in sight! China Grove - The Doobie Brothers Tribute, continues to build on the success of our 2017 debut with more shows in the Chicagoland area and beyond in 2020. 

I've got several open dates, so if you're in need of a sub, or any short or long term project, including sessions, look me up. Doesn't have to be country. I also have openings for private lessons including virtual lessons as well. You can reach me through the Contact page if you're interested in lessons for either drums or piano. 

Lots of new shows booked so be sure to go to the Shows page and see what's been added! 

Thanks for checking out the site and like voting in Chicago, make sure you come back early and often!​​​​
