Introduction

This is Canada's very own, "Kid Hawk". The son of Canadian music icon, Rompin' Ronnie Hawkins, has flown into cyberspace and is ready to rock your world in the Hawkins family tradition. Covering classic tunes from the 50's up to today's top hits along with an amazing selection of original tunes, Rockin' Robin offers us a breath of fresh air with his most recent incoming flight.

Review excerpts from Accoustically Speaking, November 4, 2007 ROBIN HAWKINS BAND AT CHICAGO"S!

"Anyone who was fortunate enough to attend Chicago's (Diner in Oshawa, Ontario) last Friday night to see The Robin Hawkins Band will agree that we just may have a new Canadian music icon on the horizon. Being the son of and working with his legendary father, Ronnie,since Robin was fifteen years old,has obviously influenced his music and direction, but no more than,let's say, HP sauce influences a steak. The main course here is all Robin... and as meaty, hearty, tasty and tender as you could hope for.... it was no surprise that the dance floor was full all night. With an intense, but satisfying mix of originals and covers(Forty Days,Bo Diddley/Who Do You Love, of course), the audience and I were compelled to show our appreciation after each and every tune for Robin's refreshing and inventive vocals and blistering guitar solos. I'm sure that daddy must be really proud of how his boy has accepted the torch and is blazing forward on his own path to the roots-rock hall-of-fame and once you witness the experience yourself,I'm sure you will agree.Great stuff, Robin and I'm looking forward to doing it again soon!"

"...Robin is playing a series of gigs around town lately...

At about 15, he joined his daddy on the road and essentially hasn't left it. Over the years he has played a variety of styles but has settled into a rootsier sound of late and covers some of the Hawk's tunes in his set..."
