Rick Showalter

Making the ʻpocketʼ deep, where people more than hear it -- they feel it. As the bassist, Ricky is at the center of the our sound. He knows how unique the bass parts are in the music of the Beatles, the Motown catalogue, Sly and the Family Stone, where the playing has become a characteristic of the song. The craft of ʻlearning stylesʼ is requisite for a musician to be in the NKB. You can check Rickyʼs playing out with Grammy nominated funk/jazz/hip hop super-group, Liquid Soul.


The option to eliminate one or both band breaks. Or add the DJ/Turntablist and Continuous is included!
