Bobby Hutcherson (born January 27, 1941, in Los Angeles, California) is a jazz vibraphone and marimba player. His vibraphone playing is suggestive of the style of Milt Jackson in its free-flowing melodicism, but his sense of harmony and group interaction is thoroughly modern. Hutcherson has influenced younger vibraphonists including Steve Nelson, Joe Locke and Stefon Harris.

The Baja Marimba Band was a popular musical group led by marimba player Julius Wechter. Initially formed by producer Herb Alpert to cash in on the "south of the border" craze started by his own Tijuana Brass, the Baja Marimba Band outlasted the Tijuana Brass by several years thanks largely in part to TV producer, Chuck Barris, who featured the group's music on his game shows through the mid-1970s.
