Robbie Rox was born in Timmins, Ontario and educated in Toronto at York University, was destined to be a creative performer. Robbie Rox’s career started in 1970, in Rimouski, Quebec,with an acoustic guitar and two very different thirty minute shows. These acts saw Robbie warming up some of the big name American acts such as Gentle Giant and Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels. In 1978, the now “Glabrous Headed Rox” accompaniedby this band released his first LP entitled Construction Site. In 1978 Robbie also started the Catso, Porco, Rozzo Band. In the early 90’s, Robbie, using some of the same musicians from his very first band from the seventies, started The Rude Band.
