It Don’t Mean a Thing if it Ain’t Got That Swing.
— Duke Ellington
 
 

The Alpha Rhythm Kings specialize in swing, vintage lounge, and boogie woogie. The California band features top quality musicians, with Robert Dehlinger's blazing trumpet and vocal stylings leading the way.  

Fans of Louis Prima, Louis Armstrong, and Harry James love this band!  A favorite of swing dancers, as well as nightclub, festival, and concert-going audiences, the A.R.K. love sharing their authentic jazzy vibe.  They can also be found at swanky private clubs and family-friendly venues, such as California's Great America.

The A.R.K. has brought their classic sound all over the world, from the Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills, to performances in Hungary, Austria, and Germany, and back to the USA to play at the 2018 Grammy Awards Nominee San Francisco Chapter Celebration.

Frontman Robert has entertained crowds at venues all over the globe, including Lincoln Center's Midsummer Night's Swing in Manhattan, and Disneyland Park in Anaheim, CA. 

In November 2017, The Alpha Rhythm Kings released their debut recording, "California Boogie", an EP featuring their exciting original arrangement of "Oh Marie"!
