If you're on Facebook, consider liking my music page. It's mysteriously and seductively called Rob Rainwater. And if the Facebook algorithm gods are feeling generous, my posts about upcoming shows just might land in your newsfeed.

NEWS & UPDATES (written by rob's biggest fan)
Hi all. Cherie here. In case we haven't met, I'm Rob's wife, and also his biggest fan, both in music and in life. About once a month, I'm gonna try to write a little bit about what Rob is up to musically. Hope you enjoy it!
After a busy month of shows in January, Rob is turning his focus this month to some more songwriting and planning for a very special event coming up in March. I'll give you a hint: It has to do with Simon & Garfunkel, and it has to do with a tribute show. Okay, you forced it out of me. It's a Simon & Garfunkel Tribute Show! Rob's currently figuring out the musical lineup, the venue, and the recipient of the proceeds (as the show will be a benefit for a local non-profit). He'll be releasing an official announcement soon, so be looking for that! :)
Quick recap. Last weekend, Rob and Michele Van Kleef played as The Whiskey Darlings for two nights out at the Salishan Spa & Golf Resort on the Oregon coast. They played on a beautiful little stage in an intimate room called The Attic Lounge. The audience was so impressed, they urged all their local friends to come see the show the following night! On the second night, well-known Portland band 3 Leg Torso happened to finish a benefit show on the property, made their way to the Attic Lounge, and stumbled upon The Whiskey Darlings. It was a kick for Rob and Michele to play for such talented and respected fellow musicians.
The one place you can catch Rob performing this month will be in Sherwood, OR, at 503 Uncorked. This will be a Whiskey Darlings show on Friday, February 10th from 8-10:30pm. There is no cover, and it's all ages until 9pm. 503 Uncorked is a great little wine bar located in the historic downtown district, and serves over 50 artisanal wines and delicious bites using local ingredients. I plan to be there, too, so if you come, we can high five.
