ROBIN BIBI is one of the UK’s top blues/rock guitarists and having paid his dues working with such names as Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, Ben.E.King, The Pretty Things and Helen Shapiro, launched the Robin Bibi Band in the late 90s...

The Band’s debut album "BLUE THRASH THERAPY" was released way back in 1997 and quickly sold out leading to several re-releases. The follow up "LANGUAGE OF YOUR SOUL" was released in 2000 and immediately recieved airplay on Paul Jones' jazz fm show "Jazz Me Blues" .."LIVE THERAPY" the bands first live album was released in 2003 as was the Studio album "TRIBUTE TO FAST" a celebration of the songwriting artistry of Robins old friend Brian Holmes. 2006 saw the release of Robin’s acoustic solo album "FAST LIFE SONGS" which has also received critical acclaim and continues to sell well. 2009 saw the release of the bands second Live album "SWITCH ON THE LIVE" a powerful high energy album capturing the band at its most passionate, exciting and dynamic moments with some inspired musicianship. An Acoustic Live Album "FAST DREAMS COME ALIVE" recorded at the Bulls Head Barnes was released in 2010..."LIVE AT THE OVAL" , a limited edition album featuring Robin and ALAN GLEN, one of the UK's very finest harmomica players (Ex YARDBIRDS, NINE BELOW ZERO) followed soon after... But the most exciting is still yet to come!!!
