Bobby Faria

Born:

Raised in Middletown, RI by two very musical parents, Bobby has been playing music since the age of 5 or 6 when he used to jam with his parents. Little Bobby would be strumming on the ukulele while his father Tony Faria, stretched out on violin or guitar and his mother, Lolly played the piano. Later, in junior high school, he played a rented tenor saxophone in the school concert band.  Then in high school he realized how much he loved performing when he sang and played guitar in several locally successful rock bands. His first real instrument had been the electric guitar and he has wielded it successfully for over 30 years in a wide variety of musical genres. In 1998, he bought his first saxophone and before too long, he was getting calls for gigs.

Possessing vocals in the range of such musical divas as Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey and Celine Dion, Lori came from a musical household on both sides of her family including an aunt who enjoyed a jazz career in the 40's, an aunt who trained vocally with opera singer, Grace Bumbry, and a cousin whose single, "Whatchu Gonna Do With Me Now" became an iconic R&B single

Sioux Robbins

Born:

Local Philadelphians might recognize Sioux as a model and commercial actor. But there has always been much more to her. Born in Michigan and raised in NY, NJ and PA, Sioux Robbins is a singer songwriter. She started playing piano by ear as a young child, the fourth of five children in her family. Technically it started with her older brother showing her a simple boogie-woogie on the piano at four years old. But for her it really began when she discovered the intro to My Girl ran straight across the black keys.

She’s always loved the music of the '70s. From Carole King, Paul Simon and Crosby Stills Nash and Young, to Santana, Roberta Flack, Stevie Wonder, the Isely Brothers, Earth Wind and Fire to the Jazz Fusion of Return to Forever

She has graced the covers of fashion magazines, toured with the Vogue models and walked down her share of runways! She has landed several commercials, including McDonalds!

With such a broad vocal range and being a voice-over artist, she has the ability to manipulate her voice to fit most styles of music, reaching multiple age groups. She is college-educated and her charismatic personality and professional demeanor is why she was chosen to host last year's Louisville WorldFest which attracted over 100,000 visitors!
