Hush, a super group comprised of San Francisco area musicians. One of its participants is Robert Berry.|After high school Robert Berry entered San Jose State University as a music major and again carefully balanced his academic and professional interests. It was around this time that Joe Camarata, a resourceful talent agent at the NBC booking agency, came up with a plan to create a ‘local super group’ by combining members from several recently disbanded outfits. Berry had remained close with drummer Mike Dimock. The agent had a bass player named Gene Perrault and a guitar player named Joey Cannizaro that were interested in joinging forces. They met for the first time in Berry’s parents garage where many of his younger bands had practiced. Joe, Gene, Mike and Robert hit it off immediately. What resulted from that meeting came to be known as Hush. |The band put together a showcase for local talent buyers and without even having a full set of material, swept up bookings for over 6 months. After the initial 6 months Joey decided to leave for his own solo band. But Perrault and Berry had formed a solid musical and personal friendship. Together with Mike Dimock they auditioned guitar players from all around the bay area. But only one stood out from all the rest. He was, at the time, an unknown musician that had never been in a band before. But his personality and playing style was just what Hush was looking for. He played everything from the most complicated progressive pieces to the staight forward rock riffs with ease. With the addition of guitarist Paul Keller, Hush shifted into high gear.
