Home / Culture / Mike Rob and the 601 Band


In Best of Jackson, it is rare to see someone win without having been a finalist for the past few years, but that is exactly what happened with 2018’s Best R&B Artist/Group, Mike Rob and the 601 Band.

Since forming in 2009, the group has performed classic and contemporary R&B hits all around the region. Today, the lineup includes vocalists Mike Robinson and Tiffany Haywood, drummer Frank White, bassist Sky Chambers, keyboardist and background vocalist Kevin Culver, guitarist Jeremy McCoy, saxophonist Bobby Conner, and trumpeter Richard Beverly.

Robinson says that being mentioned among Jackson’s R&B greats is humbling.

“Me and the 601 go out and do what we do week after week, and the applause is there after we finish, but it’s good to know that the music touches the people after they leave the club,” he says. —Brinda Fuller Willis
