Robert Sakogawa - Guitar & Vocals

Robert started playing guitar in high school and has been playing for over 35 years.  After moonlighting as a guitarist, gardener, and sushi chef, he entered the world of corporate middle management for the past three decades so he could earn money to start his guitar collection. 

Originally from So Cal, Robert played in a rock/jazz/world music band down south for a number of years before moving to the Bay Area.  While not rocking with Audio Illusion, he plays solo acoustic "world music" gigs at local venues.  No one is sure if he plays solo acoustic gigs because his hearing is going or because no one else will play with him.  He will play for food and wine..........and more wine.

His favorite guitarists are Al Di Meola, Yngwie Malmsteen, and Ottmar Liebert.

Robert's main axe is an Ibanez and he plays Fender and Peavey amps.
