Rob Tobias and The Northwest Express features the songwriting of Rob Tobias and some talented players who bring this distinctive Northwest Expression alive. The band play music that has been described as a blend of blues, jazz, folk-pop, reggae and soul.  Tobias's songwriting is diverse; including songs of love, progressive values, & appreciation of the Northwest and beyond. The songs contain positive messages and upbeat infectious rhythms and melodies. A good time acoustic Northwest party band. While focusing mostly on originals the band is known to cover some Motown, Ray Charles, Dylan, Van Morrison, Bob Marley and other classic pop/soul/blues/jazz numbers.

The “Rob Tobias and The Northwest Express” CD was released in January of 2011 and Serena Markstrom wrote in her Register Guard review: “If the Northwest has a little of all the good stuff, Tobias’ own songwriting mirrors that diversity. His blended style samples from jazz, blues, reggae, folk and rock.”  Read the full review

The band has played at local festivals such as Art in the Vineyard,

The Eugene Celebration, Friendly Area Neighborhood Picnic, and Saturday / Holiday Markets as well as parties and clubs.
