The Official Site of Rob Batie
Robert T. Batie was born in St. Augustine, Florida. He began playing the saxophone at the tender age of nine years old. His choice of instrument was due to the intrigue of the many keys the saxophone has. As a child, he and his family moved around because his father was serving in the military. The family lived in Guam, New York, Georgia, Maryland, Virginia and Europe. While his home address changed frequently, the one constant in his life was music and sports. By the time he graduated from high school in Manassas VA, the young musician could play all four saxophones, as well as keyboards and drums. His love and fascination with the sax was matched only by his love for football.
Rob completed a tour of duty in the United States Air Force and, upon discharge, attended the University of Maryland. As a walk-on athlete, he became a running back for the Maryland Terrapins football team. After college, he tried out for the National Football League with the Atlanta Falcons as a free agent. The NFL didn't work out for Batie so he returned to music as a professional and immersed himself in the thriving Atlanta music scene. While there, Batie began performing at jazz festivals, Churchill Downs, and other jazz hot spots around the city and on the east coast. Batie has performed at the world-famous "Apollo Theatre" in Harlem, New York receiving the nod from the tough NYC Apollo crowd. He has performed as the headliner or opening act for various artists in Washington DC, Tampa, Miami, Los Angeles, and other cities across the US, Canada and Europe.
After a successful tour performing, Batie went into the studio to record his debut CD entitled "Tunnel Vision." Receiving critical acclaim in cities like Montreal, Philadelphia, and Atlanta, Batie went back on the road to promote the new CD. Upon his return to Atlanta, he felt he the need for change so he relocated to the beautiful sands and surroundings of Miami Beach where he expanded his fan base. Miami, with its sun, sand and fun inspired Batie to go back into the studio to record his second CD entitled "Jazz Hustler", which was released in November, 2004 on Jazzman Land Music, his own label. Batie writes and arranges all of his music, drawing on his vast and diverse experiences. When asked to describe his ideal demographic fan base, Batie states that his fans are a lot like himself -- professionals and everyday people of all ages who have an insatiable thirst for creative, quality music that includes urban, fusion, reggae, Latin and progressive jazz. Batie strives to deliver music that is relevant, personal and entertaining to his growing fan base.
As an artist Batie is growing in a variety of ways. In early 2005, the opportunity to act presented itself, and he seized it with enthusiasm, appearing in Miami Vice, the motion picture starring Jamie Foxx. This movie offered Batie his first acting role where he played a Bouncer at a Miami nightclub. Since then, several acting opportunities have come along on both the big and small screens such as CSI Miami and several small independent films. As a Screen Actors Guild member, it is no surprise that Batieâs magnetism in the music world has parlayed into success in acting. Heeding Hollywoodâs call, Batie is currently expanding his craft in Los Angeles. While making music was his first love, a perfect marriage has been formed with his phenomenal acting abilities. Batie continues performing in various music venues around the country as well as for private events
