Brian Robertson (born October 19, 1979) is the trombone player for the Orange County-based third-wave ska band Suburban Legends[1] and, along with Vincent Walker, is one of the two members to have played with the band since its origin as Bomb Squad. He met other ex-Suburban Legends / Bomb Squad members, trumpet player Aaron Bertram and best friend and trombone player Ryan Dallas Cook through the Huntington Beach High School Marching Band. In 2007, Robertson started to be known by the nickname 'Robot', most likely a reference to the dance moves he does onstage with the band, the first three letters of his last name, and/or to avoid confusion with the band's other Brian, Brian Klemm.
