Panama City Music Association presents Robert Van Deusen at the Harbor Village Club Room on October 30 at 6:00 pm. 

 

Robert Van Deusen, a Philadelphia native, began his musical training at age 7. Precocious from a very early age, he started picking out tunes by mimicking the family player piano. Classically trained, he attended Whetstone School of the Performing Arts in Columbus, Ohio, graduating with distinction. Further studies at Capital University, Ohio State, Eastman, and Curtis helped develop the dazzling technique that became a trademark of this playing style. After turning pro in 1976, Bobby toured the Midwest. Moving South in 1985 led him to the Rosie O’Grady Dixieland Band, and gigs in New Orleans with Pete Fountain, Al Hirt, and the Dukes of Dixieland, perfecting his stride and ragtime styles.
