SRT Band

In an era where music is created virtually in bedrooms and basements, SRT is creating modern music the old-fashioned way: live, together in the studio. Session ace Andrew Synowiec, drumming legend John “J.R.” Robinson, and jazz phenom Mitch Towne have formed a power trio with one foot in the past and one foot in the future.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        John “J.R.” Robinson – World-renowned, Grammy-winning musician John “J.R.” Robinson is widely considered the most recorded drummer in history, playing on albums that have sold well over 500 million copies. He is the drummer on 20 number-one pop songs by artists such as Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Lionel Richie, and Steve Winwood, and has been the drummer on more than 100 Grammy-winning tracks. Rolling Stone Magazine featured J.R. in their list of The Top 100 Drummers of All Time. Some of J.R.’s number-one hits include:

Michael Jackson – “Rock With You,” “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough,” “Bad,” “The Way You Make Me Feel”
Whitney Houston – “Greatest Love of All,” “Didn’t We Almost Have It All,” “Saving All My Love For You,” “I Will Always Love You”
Lionel Richie – “All Night Long,” “Say You, Say Me”
Steve Winwood – “Higher Love,” “The Finer Things”
USA for Africa – “We Are The World”

J.R. is the drummer on many other Top-40 hits with artists such as Madonna, Lady Gaga, Diana Ross, Daft Punk, David Lee Roth, Rufus & Chaka Khan, The Pointer Sisters, Wilson Philips, Peter Cetera, George Benson, and Quincy Jones.  It’s not an exaggeration to say that J.R. Robinson is the drummer on the soundtrack of our lives.

Andrew Synowiec – You may not know Andrew Synowiec by name, but chances are you’ve heard his Grammy-winning guitar playing. Andrew is a multi-faceted session musician with credits like The Who’s #1 album Who, the blockbuster film Frozen (including the infectious “Let It Go”), and countless commercial and indie projects. With his collection of nearly 100 stringed instruments, he has recorded for artists ranging from M83 to Michael Bublé and producers like Bob Rock and David Foster. Andrew has contributed to albums selling over 10 million copies worldwide and more than 25 Grammy-nominated recordings, including his own 2015 Grammy Award as a member of the acclaimed LA Big Band “Gordon Goodwin’s Big Phat Band.”

Andrew’s live performances have covered the globe from Madison Square Garden to the Tokyo Blue Note. He has appeared on every major network and accompanied artists such as Ariana Grande, Elton John and the LA Philharmonic.

Mitch Towne – Mitch Towne is a Grammy-nominated keyboardist and touring musician. His ability to move seamlessly between diverse styles has made him a sought-after side-man with artists as varied as multi-platinum artists John “J.R.” Robinson and Aloe Blacc, jazz/R&B artist and Grammy-winning producer Terrace Martin, jazz heavyweights Ryan Kisor, Matt Wilson, Dave Stryker, Jerry Bergonzi, Troy Roberts and Dan Wilson, and blues artist Eric Gales.

In 2015, Towne played organ on the track “Push” for the album “Velvet Portraits” by Terrace Martin, which was nominated for a 2016 Grammy for “Best R&B” album.
