Robert Gorham, known by the pseudonym Rob da Bank, is a British disc jockey. He presents a Sunday late-night show, Sunday Best, on BBC Radio 1 from midnight-2am, focused on promoting new leftfield music. Until September 2006, he and Chris Coco were the presenters of the Blue Room on Radio 1. The show had a dedicated following, and was one of the few show-cases for a unique blend of quirky chillout tunes. He also hosted Radio 1's One Music show on Thursday nights, the content of which is more similar to the music played on his current show. Rob Da Bank filled in for John Peel's show for several weeks following his death in 2004. The music played by Rob da Bank on Sunday Best helped launch the "bar culture" (as opposed to "club culture"), which features more relaxed activities than dancing.
He is also the owner of a number of business ventures under the name Sunday Best, which originated as a Sunday night event in a Battersea tea-room. Sunday Best has grown to incorporate a record label and an off-shoot music festival, Bestival. Gorham has also compiled a mix LP for the Fabric night club's series of mix compilations, entitled Fabric 24 (2006).
