Bob Santelli

Executive Director, GRAMMY Museum at L.A. LIVE

Robert Santelli was named Executive Director of The GRAMMY Museum in 2006.  A noted blues and rock historian, Santelli is also the author of more than a dozen books on American music.

In 1993, Santelli was one of the original curators of the then nascent Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, moving to Cleveland in 1995 to become the museum’s first Director of Education and Vice President of Public Programs. In 2000, he became the CEO of Paul Allen’s Experience Music Project in Seattle, the first ever interactive music museum. Santelli also developed the UK’s first pop music museum, the British Music Experience, which opened at London’s O2 Center in 2009.

Santelli is on the creative team for the annual GRAMMY® Awards Show, and has served as head curator for many of the museum’s most popular exhibits. Additionally, Santelli has produced eight educational programs with The First Lady at the White House, most notably Music That Inspired The Movement, a program about how music influenced the Civil Rights Movement.
