ABOUT

Sharing the same birthday as John Lennon..
I've been a full-time studio musician, performer & vocalist for over 25 years, working on various recording projects, vocal work, performing in clubs with multiple bands, and solo artists. I have provided tour support as a Keyboardist/Organist for many local & national recording artists including:
Devon Allman (Son of music legend Gregg Allman),
Neale Heywood (Fleetwood Mac) Norman Sylvester,
Eugene Fodor (World Renowned Violinist) The late Paul Delay, Grammy winner Billy Sprague, and many more.

When I'm not performing, I teach Keyboard Improvisation, work on studio projects as a Hammond Organ session player, and donate my time and talents to various organizations & causes.
Genres of music I perform: Blues, Soul, Gospel, Funk, Classic Rock, Rockabilly, Country, etc.

I have a current passport, and available for touring.
Please feel free to contact me if you're in need of a pro-level keyboardist/organ player for tour support, studio recording, local, or out of town show.

Thanks - Rick

Past Events

Join me this coming friday night at Chatfields Sports Bar & Grill for some great live music and good times.
Featuring my band: J.C. & The Water Walkers

Hope to see you there!

One of the largest group of musicians ever brought together for a live studio recording in the state of Colorado, will be gathering to lend our talents to perform a live studio recording for our friend and fellow musician: Joe Youmans. Joe has been recently diagnosed with lung cancer, and is currently undergoing chemo therapy. And as a personal request to his fellow musicians and close friends, we will be playing all the classics. From Rock’n’roll, Gospel, Blues, Jam Rock, Folk, Country & Southern Rock. This is our priviledge to show our support to Joe & his family, as well as use our talents for something much more meaningful. I would ask all of my fellow musicians and artists out there to forward this event to your friends as well, in support of Joe Youmans. He has been in the music business for over 45 years, working with people like Dick Clark, and with the Eagles in their beginning stages. Please show your support to Joe by sending your thoughts to: bluesman1070@gmail.com. All of your messages and prayers will be forwarded to the Youmans Family. Thank you all for your support.
