Jazz Vocalist - Pianist
- Band Leader
The Robert Hicks Band is a sophisticated and exciting ensemble specializing in the popular and timeless jazz forms of the late forties and fifties. Band leader and vocalist Hicks demonstrates a polished, vibrant and effortless style, reminiscent of the very best combos and big bands of the past.
His own original arrangements and orchestrations reflect a unique West Coast style, influenced by Miles Davis, Gerry Mulligan and early Henry Mancini.
His voice has been compared to a young Chet Baker and his style hearkens back to Nat King Cole and Ella Fitzgerald.
Hicks weaves unique harmonies and textures
around a tasty blend of swing, Latin, bop, cool, standards and lush
ballads. The program is fresh, modern, surprising and eclectic within
the genre. If you want an ensemble for an evening of elegant and
romantic, yet fun and exciting music on the dance floor, the Robert
Hicks Band is just the ticket.
