Robbie King & The Blues Counts featuring Tina Jackson is a band on a mission.

The idea was to get back to traditional Blues. Robbie King wanted a group of musicians and singers that had roots. He also wanted to keep it modern. And ... that was what he got. Now, playing out live is simply a pleasure for all involved, band and audiences alike. Come see a show or book the band for your venue. You won't regret it.

Formed through the summer and fall of 2012, Robbie King and The Blues Counts featuring Tina Jackson is a diverse group of dedicated and highly skilled musicians who all share a love of the Blues. All kinds of Blues. But for the purposes of this particular group, traditional modern Blues is where it's at.

Each member brings his/her own special skillsets that when combined serve to create a single entity that achieves it's goal, namely, laying down some hot, tight, soulful Blues grooves in the traditional modern vein. Somewhere around a century, that's right, a CENTURY of collective experience playing live in front of audiences gives this band the tools that allow them to create a sound and feel that Blues afficianadoes everywhere will appreciate.
