Acoustic Debauchery

Acoustic Debauchery. Rob Hastings is the artist that every venue needs. His creative guitar playing is combined with a warm vocal that can sing everything from John Mellencamp’s “Jack and Diane” to Sublime’s “What I Got” to Warren G’s “Regulators.” Rob brings the ultimate mix of cover songs that appeal to all ages and venue types.

“I’m an entertainer,” says Rob. “It is a great feeling is to engage a demanding audience with a song and a couple of beers while they sing along, laugh, and/or dance themselves to embarrassment… all with just an acoustic guitar.”

However, Rob’s lone acoustic guitar and voice as a solo artist are from the small sound characteristic of other acoustic artists. Rob uses a loop station in his live shows that broadens his sound as he adds bass lines, percussive beats, voice harmonies, and other improvisations that give the audible appearance of a larger band.

Rob has played all over the United States to include Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, South Carolina, Florida, and California. Rob now resides in San Diego, California where he has played at numerous bars and restaurants to include Double Deuce, Prospect Bar and Lounge, Bareback Grill, SideBar, Tio Leo’s, The Stage, and Tiki Bar among others.

“Rob can make a dead room alive in five minutes,” says Steve Poturich, owner of Happy Stefano’s in Jacksonville, Florida. “His talent as an entertainer is endless. He is a comedian, outstanding musician, and as a Naval Academy graduate, my wife Cathy calls him an officer and a gentleman.”

See Rob live and see the acoustic debauchery for yourself.
