The thing about Rob Strong is, he’s a serious package, bass chops, voice, presence. And he really didn’t need amplification. The voice would carry down a hall on its own. There was definitely a connection between us and The Plattermen in the early ’70s.”

What People Say About Rob

“To play with someone of the calibre of Rob Strong was a huge honour for me as Rob was one of the best singers I had ever seen in Ireland.”

Johnny Logan

“Rob Strong is unique. He is incredibly talented. In my opinion he is the best Blues/Soul singer to ever come out of Ireland. His innate gift is his voice and his timing is incredible.”

Colm Wilkinson

“There is no doubt in my mind that Rob Strong is world class. His voice is just amazing. To see The Rob Strong Band live is very special.”

Pat Shortt

“Seeing Rob Strong with The Plattermen on the late ’60s was a big influence on me. To hear a fellow Northerner sing the soul music I loved so well, gave me a lot of confidence that one day I could find my own voice. Rob is one of the true originals!.”

Paul Brady
