is very proud to present The Robert Lee Revue and Robert Lee Balderrama (aka Bobby Balderrama). From bursting on to the music scene in the sixties with hits like ’96 Tears’ with a band that had the uniquely different name of Question Mark & the Mysterians (…it was the sixties after all!), Robert Lee Balderrama now performs Smooth Jazz as The Robert Lee Revue. Members of The Robert Lee Revue are fellow Mysterians cohort Frank Rodriguez on keyboards, Tom Barsheff on saxophone, Dr. Jack Nash on bass and Amy Lynn Balderrama keeps the beat on percussion along with drummer Rudy Levario. The group has fused on a sound that focuses on Smooth Jazz but is reminiscent of George Benson and
Carlos Santana in style.




Robert Balderrama and Frank Rodriguez have experienced both the positives and negatives of the music business during nearly five decades of playing together. The success came very early – as teenage members of Question Mark and The Mysterians they enjoyed a #1 hit in 1966 with “96 Tears” which has been covered by everyone from Bruce Springsteen to the UK’s punk band The Stranglers. This was followed by four more singles on the Billboard charts before the record label they were on went out of business in late 1967. The band recorded on a number of other labels without the success of the earlier hits. They also got poor business advice that cost them the rights to their original recordings.

Robert’s introduction to jazz guitar came early. As a young man he cites Wes Montgomery, Chet Atkins, and Grant Green as early influences. In the 70’s it was Carlos Santana and George Benson. He would practice those styles on his guitar for hours. For the new album Santana was the inspiration for the Latin ingredients, while he drew on Benson for the beautiful low tones on his guitar. “Everybody is influenced by somebody else and Benson has said that he was influenced by Wes Montgomery, so that gave me the idea of putting two styles together that I admire out of respect. When I hear people comment on my sound, it proves that I’m able to come across with what it is that I’m trying to do” states Robert.
