The Robin Henkel Band with Horns performs their own unique blend of jazz, blues, funk and swing. Firmly grounded in artistic expression Robin describes it this way, “Our performances honor the rich music traditions of blues, jazz, swing and funk. The usual line-up is trumpet with tenor and baritone saxophones, guitar, bass and drums. Sometimes clarinet and congas find their way into the mix. We love playing music that is modern as well as digging into the styles of great artists from the past such as Duke Ellington and Slim Gaillard.” 
 
Robin Henkel is a four time recipient of Best Blues at the San Diego Music Awards. This band has been performing and evolving with members coming and going for over thirty years. “In the 1980s we opened for John McLaughlin at the Bacchanal as well as performed the KSDS 88.3 Jazz Live show in the Saville Theatre.” Robin has appeared with the San Diego Symphony, Sha Na Na, Johnny Almond, Willie King, Lowell Fulson, Jimmy Witherspoon and Buddy Miles. Robin has opened shows for Dizzy Gillespie, Bonnie Raitt, Charles Brown, Bill Withers, Dr John, Arlo Guthie, John Mayall, Willie Nelson, Todd Rundgren, Steve Stills, Dave Mason, Jr Wells and Elvin Bishop. “Robin Henkel is a historian and a futurist”—LA Times.
