Welcome to my web site. My name is Rob Barics, and I play the tenor saxophone, clarinet & bass clarinet. Over the past many years I've been fortunate to have traveled the world with the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, Wynton Marsalis Septet, Lavay Smith & Her Red Hot Skillet Lickers, Marcus Shelby Jazz Orchestra, Eaton-Barics Quintet, Clint Baker's New Orleans Jazz Band, 8 Legged Monster and many other local groups. I've had the great honor and privilege of sharing the stage with musical masters Wynton Marsalis, Jon Faddis, Clark Terry, Wessell Anderson, Walter Blanding, Wycliffe Gordon, Carlos Henriquez, Joe Temperly, Victor Goines, Clint Baker, Marcus Shelby, Faye Carol, Jules Broussard, Danny Armstrong, Howard Wiley, Mike Olmos, Erik Jekabson, Kenny Washington and many other incredibly soulful and soul warming musicians.
I am currently working in the SF Bay Area with Lavay Smith, as one of her Red Hot Skillet Lickers, Erik Jekabson's New Orleans project with Kenny Washington, the Olmos-Barics Quintet, as well as my own quartet and smaller groups. You can find where I'll be on the calendar page.
Please drop me a line by email, phone, instagram, facebook, messenger pigeon,...I'm available for any and all work, from lessons/classes to performance at your event or venue.
Thanks for stopping by!
