“With each great standard he sings, Rob’s skillful vocal style and rich baritone bring audiences back to the days of the original big bands. This, in combination with his musical education and years of experience as a touring musician, has made him a perfect fit for the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra. Rob is a great showman and professional in every way.”
– Buddy Morrow, Trombonist and Big Band Leader

“It has been an honor and a pleasure for me to participate in Rob Zappulla’s latest recording. I must say that I was very pleased with the final results of this most recent work when Rob sent me the CD “You Ought To Be Havin’ Fun!” As per usual, Rob’s singing is top-shelf, and his trumpet solos are exciting and moving.”
