Band to Join.

ABOUT

I am currently involved developing a new musical project, so I am not currently looking for a group to play with.

I maintain this Bandmix profile to provide some personal musical background that may aid in exploring potential future musical endeavours.

I have played with touring show groups and classic rock bands,Top 40 bands, western swing bands, wedding bands... I have done it all, usually holding down the pocket and contributing background vocals, but sometimes taking the lead vocal.

Experience, wheels, pro gear and attitude, combined with an understanding life-partner make me a reliable band-mate. I can supply musical references upon request.

I have gigged and recorded within almost every genre with some great musicians over 40 years. From high school groups Ostrich Party and Metallus Cimba, to touring show bands such as Frendz and Syren. In Sault Ste. Marie, Rick played with La Band, Bob Yeomans (Jackson Hawk), Jimi Scali (Sasquatch, Kensington Market) and many other huge talents.

In Southwestern Ontario, I most recently played bass with Sarnia's Lit'l CHICAGO, and classic rock party band Hurtin' Merv. I have also gigged with Blues greats Sam Hurrie, Tim Woodcock, Robbie Antone and many others.
