Meet The Press

Meet The Press Band Bio:

In September of 1990, Biloxian Robert Collier took the name of his Biloxi based 80’s rock group Meet The Press, teamed up with former Spinners guitarist/vocalist, Andrew Thomas, changed the sound from rock n’ roll to funk and soul and then moved the base of the new funk group to Jackson, Mississippi. Over the years, Meet The Press has shared the stage with The Whispers, Kool and The Gang, Peabo Bryson, The Average White Band, Night Ranger, blues legend Buddy Guy and Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame members, Little Richard and Bo Diddley.


The group moved from being a Mississippi/Southeast United States music mainstay to being nationally recognized.  Modern Bride Magazine, a New York City based national publication named Meet The Press as one of the one hundred and fifty hottest bands in the country. The list, the first for the band, was compiled by an editorial board and committee that combed the country for the best bands and DJ’s in the U.S. Meet The Press was chosen and as the only Mississippi act to be on the list. The group has been recognized with state declarations by former Louisiana Governor, Mike Foster, former Mississippi Governor, Kirk Fordice and current Mississippi Governor, Haley Barbour for the bands dedication to quality performances, excellence in music and as being ambassadors of goodwill for the State of Mississippi.
