Robbin King, a native of the St. Louis area , has had an interest in music since as long as he can remember. Like many great artists before him, the foundation of his talent was through the spiritual experiences of the Baptist Church, where he played piano at church services for $1.00. Later, Robbin began to explore other musical avenues, including organizing local bands, and joining his high school jazz and marching bands. Family, friends and teachers encouraged him to continue pursuing his dream and to use his extraordinary gift.
With hard work and perseverance, Robbin received a music scholarship to Southern Illinois University. While attending SIU, he was quickly recognized as a "stand-out" in the music department. As a result, among other awards and honors, Robbin was asked to perform a piano solo at the 1982 World Series in St. Louis, Missouri.
Eventually Robbin made his way to the East Coast and decided to make Virginia Beach his home. He immediately became involved in the Virginia Beach Entertainment scene by performing with local bands, performing solo at parties, as well as performing in weddings and many other events. Through these experiences, Robbin developed his own original sound and prolific song writing ability, which led him to numerous composition and production opportunities, including a tour in Japan. He was Pianist and Entertainment Director for 9 years at Aldo's Ristorante, practically a landmark in Virginia Beach and well known for its fine dining and atmosphere.
Robbin continues to Entertain the Hampton Roads area and beyond, with private and public appearances. Such as 2010 Jazz Informance with Walter Beasley and Ronnie Laws, and the 2011 Legislative Black Caucus in Richmond VA. He performs weekly at The Crowne Plaza in Virginia Beach
Whether it's fine dining at The Sheraton Oceanfront, a Christmas Party in our Nation's Capital, or the wedding of the decade in North Carolina, Robbin provides the finest Music and entertainment anywhere.
