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 concert-going audiences, the A.R.K. love sharing their authentic jazzy vibe.

Frontman Robert has entertained crowds all over the world, from Disneyland to Europe to Lincoln Center's Midsummer Night's Swing in Manhattan.

The Alpha Rhythm Kings' EP, "California Boogie", featuring their exciting original arrangement of "Oh Marie", is set for release on November 24, 2017.
