Robbie Rogers

Photographer/Videographer at Griffon Studio Arthouse Drummer/Videographer at Arizona Bliss and Lounge Fly

I am a progressive rock drummer with over 30 years experience on the live stage and in the studio setting. I have played with literally thousands of amazingly talented musicians from all over Canada including Dave Bingham (Ugly Ducklings) to Grant Foulerton (Lighthouse) In 2012, Azriahl released it's progressive concept LP which I am very proud to have played on. In 2013, the guitarist, also from Azriahl (Paul Tikkanen) and myself embarked on a new project called the Goblin Market. Paul and I were very excited to bring on board Eldon Yourkin (Rootmen) who is the vocalist/rhythm guitarist for this project and all the way from the UK, Chris Connor (Rictus). Jump ahead to Aug 2014 and I am now with Arizona Bliss... a straight balls to the wall rock project consisting of Steve O'Donoghue (Crisis Kings) and myself with guest bassists appearing here and there lol. Currently I am still with the Bliss, but for now, we have taken some time off after a great four years of touring and decided to pursue other interests. As of now, I am currently manning the drum throne for a Stone Temple Pilots tribute band called Lounge Fly.
