Welcome to Ricky!


Thanks for visiting my website!.  This year has brought many challenges.  Some illnesses with family members, some friends passing onto the next life as well as other difficulties.  However, we’ve got to somehow stay positive thru it all and trust in our Heavenly Father to pull us thru the storms.  With that in mind,  we need to somehow come together as one united family to help each other overcome our personal obstacles.


So I’m trying to do my part by creating music thru my drumming in hopes to help anyone forget about all their problems at least during a performance. This is what we musicians do.  Altho it may seem like it, It’s not always about us.  It’s the bigger picture that I believe is all part of our fathers’ plan.  For the most part, It’s to give a little peace on earth thru our own talents.  So I’d like to ask you now.  Are you using your talents to help others gain a little bit of peace on Earth? If not, why not?


Anyway, on to my purpose here.  My Gig page is updated with lots of performance dates altho not all dates have been listed.  I will do my best to update you all as time goes on.  you can always check on my Facebook page as well.

Thank you to all who come out and support live music as well as to those who continue to hire me.

Performances are always being added so please check out my gig page and see where I’m playing next.



Peace, Love, & Swing!
