Album Release & Kessler Release Show

Ricki was inspired to dip his toes back in the album making world after an unexpectedly long run of a, off the cuff, original internet show during the pandemic. Riffing with Ricki was an underground hit. Pianist Brad Williams and Ricki would broadcast from his living room each week and just come up with versions of pop songs they thought it would be cool to do Lounge style. The cream rose to the top and Ricki took them to the studio. After a 12 year recording hiatus, Reprised was born. “I couldn’t think or a better place to perform the songs on this album, for the first time, live, than the Kessler. This will be a fun night of amazing pop cover tunes done MY WAY” – RD
