Robin Watters Robin Watters

I am heavily influenced by 1940's Big Band swing. New Orleans both traditional and modern, along with Chicago style Rhythm 'n' Blues. My favourite drummers start with Warren Baby Dodds and then on to Gene Krupa, Louis Belsen, Art Blakey, Elvin Jones, Ginger Baker and Billy Cobham. I am currently fusing Swing and Rhythm 'n' Blues in the Robin Watters Barlles of Fun Jazz Band, this is run alongside my other band The Robin Watters New Orleans Orchestra which blends New Orleans, Blues and Funk. Both Bands are active on the European Jazz scene.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
