Alpha Rhythm Kings

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 audiences in nightclubs, festivals and concert halls. “Dancers love to swing out to their swaggering cover of ZZ Top’s ‘Sharp Dressed Man’” (The Washington Post).

The A.R.K.’s high-energy vintage swing vibe has whisked them all over the globe, from the Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills, to performances in Hungary, Austria, Germany, and back to the USA to play at the Grammy Awards Nominee San Francisco Chapter Celebration.


You may catch the band entertaining at top jazz venues (Herb Alpert’s Vibrato Grill, Blue Note Napa), nightclubs (Feinstein’s at the Nikko, 54 Below), exclusive private spots (the French Club, University Club of San Francisco), swanky casinos (the Peppermill in Reno, Nevada, Agua Caliente in Palm Springs, Fontainebleau and the Orleans in Las Vegas), top class hotels (the Hay-Adams in Washington, D.C.), large street fairs (san Francisco’s North Beach Festival), and family-friendly theme parks (Disneyland Resort, California’s Great America).

Frontman Robert has entertained crowds at many of the USA’s most famous locales, including shows at Lincoln Center’s Midsummer Night’s Swing in Manhattan, George Lucas’ Skywalker Ranch, Pixar Animation Studios, and Disneyland Park in Anaheim, CA.
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 three singles: “Choo Choo Ch’Boogie (Featuring Tammi Savoy)”, “Vaccinate Me, Baby”, and a rollicking rendition of Louis Prima’s little-known “Baciagaloop”, released in December 2023.
