Cushney Robert's remarkable voice has taken him from New York's "21 Club", to Chicago's Pump Room, to headlining on the Las Vegas Strip. A versatile singer who's musical roots and interests have ranged from classical & symphonic music, to pop, R&B and jazz; and he's had the opportunity to perform them all.
As early as age nine he was earning money as a boy Soprano in a church choir, learning to play the trombone and guitar and booking his own singing group at neighbor hood parties. While earning a degree in Engineering and Business Management at Princeton University, Roberts co-fronted and handled the business for "Quiet Fire", a Pop / R&B group that styled themselves loosely after the Fifth Dimension and performed around university clubs as well as the New York metropolitan area. After graduating, "Cush" worked for ten years, as a corporate engineer while moonlighting full time at night in clubs around Chicago and later Dallas, Texas as a solo act.
Cushney then made the decision to move Las Vegas to pursue his avocation on a full time basis. He first made his mark in Vegas fronting his own group crooning standards and contemporary pop music in the casino lounges. During his years as a solo performer, Cush amassed a resume that includes the featured male vocalist role in major production shows, opening for the likes of Tony Bennett, Doc Severinson and the late Marty Robbins, co-starring in the Broadway drama "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom" as an equity actor, SAG roles in motion pictures and a guest TV spot on Donahue.
He later joined the show-band Edy Gainer & Dezire and toured the Reno/Tahoe circuit for several years before leaving to form his own group. SPECTRUM was formed in 1995 specifically to portray Motown's Four Tops in American Superstars' & Legends in Concert's Las Vegas tribute shows, which they did with great success for 6 1/2 years. As is indicative in the name of the group however, Cush had his sights set on a much broader "spectrum" of music than that of the great 4 Tops, when the group was conceived. The larger vision for SPECTRUM is presently being pursued and realized with the very popular tribute to Motown and R & B performed in Las Vegas, on Royal Caribbean Cruise Ships, with Symphony Orchestras, at private functions and around the globe.
