Robin and the Rubes

Robin & The Rubes is a hard-driving quartet that mixes tradition with an emphasis on improvisation to create a cool blend of old school blues with a modern edge. This band draws on traditional roots blues music from legendary blues performers like BB King, Johnnie Johnson, and Muddy Waters, as well as the influences of contemporary artists like Bonnie Raitt, Susan Tedeschi, Debbie Davies, and Eric Clapton.

The band was originally founded in 1994 by Robin and has been a mainstay on the Western New York blues scene. Robin & The Rubes have opened for several acclaimed blues acts such as Matt “Guitar” Murphy, Johnny Clyde Copeland, James Thackery, Gary Primach, and Tinsley Ellis. They have performed at The Buffalo Blues, Western New York Music, Buffalo Blues Society and The Fredonia Red White and Blues Festivals. Robin & The Rubes was the featured band in the Spring 2000 Issue of Blues Beat Magazine.
