Musician's Biographies
Getting to know.... Russ Vroom
Return to Home Page

Born in Plainfield, NJ, Russ eventually received a BS from New Jersey City University and a graduate degree from Kean University for his chosen profession, a medical audio-visual specialist.


His family was very musical; his mother sang, every male, and some ladies, all played the piano.  He was doomed.  He played for school assemblies and church services.  Eventually, he was drafted into the Army and became the Chaplain’s Assistant and, naturally, played the organ for his services.


Shortly after he and his wife, Barbara Ann, moved to Sun City in 1997, he met Pete Sencevicky who introduced him to Dixieland.  He was doomed once again!  He also likes to listen to jazz and standards and enjoys playing cocktail music and “cornball stuff”.

Working with the DJSLC, he says, “keeps the cobwebs at bay and improves my reading abilities.”
