Swing. Jump Blues. Vintage Lounge. Boogie Woogie.
Established in 2017, the Alpha Rhythm Kings have created quite a stir with music fans, having crafted an exciting, King Size California sound, with what Roots Music Magazine No Depression calls “the badge of authenticity”.
The band’s top quality musicians, with Robert Dehlinger’s “exhilarating” trumpet and “magnetic” singing (Jazz Corner) leading the way, are a favorite with swing dancers, as well as with audiences in nightclubs, festivals and concert halls.
The Alpha Rhythm Kings’ debut recording, “California Boogie”, featuring their exciting original arrangement of “Oh Marie”, is a “truly happening party record” (Jazz Corner), and one of the “greatest swingin’ releases worldwide” (Hey Mister Jesse).
The A.R.K.‘s first full-length offering, “Sharp Dressed Men”, is “a jumping good time of an album” (Midwest Record Blog), and “sharper than a Versace suit” (Jazz Weekly). It was followed up with the 2021 single release, “Choo Choo Ch’Boogie (Featuring Tammi Savoy)”, and 2022’s “Vaccinate Me, Baby”.
