It’ll be a cool happening from 3-6pm on July 7th at the elegant Sheldon Concert Hall, in celebration of one of St. Louis’ most beloved drummers, Mr. Keith Robinson, it’s his 60th birthday party!


From the St. Louis Blues Society ‘Bluesletter’ – Anybody who is familiar with the St. Louis blues music scene must surely be familiar with Keith Robinson. Whether they know him by name or not, Keith is everywhere. He can frequently be found drumming behind major area acts such as Arthur Williams, Barbara Carr, Boo Boo Davis, and oh yeah, Chuck Berry. Robinson has been a regular member of Berry’s band for well over a decade.
