FOMULE "BAND" : & The Escape

Possédant plus d’une corde à son arc, et aimant créer de nouveaux projets et relever de nouveaux défis, Frédéric Pellerin alias Rico présente maintenant son nouveau projet: THEY CALL ME RICO & The Escape.

C’est en formation complète que Rico et ses évadés sillonneront les routes cette année. Rico est accompagné de Jean Joly à la basse et de Nicolas Charbonnier à la batterie !

Au Menu, les chansons de Rico mais plus encore, des incursions dans le matériel de son premier groupe, Madcaps, ainsi que quelques ré-interprétations de pépites méconnues, le tout revampé à la manière Rico.

Born in Canada, They Call Me Rico is a one-man recording and touring musician who now lives in Lyon, France.

Driven by a powerful voice, bottleneck slide guitar and simultaneous bass drum and hi-hat playing, his music blends acoustic blues, folk and straight-ahead rock and roll. Rico’s ability to perform multiple instruments at the same time is an exciting spectacle.

Playing mostly original songs, he draws you into his world of road movie soundtracks, songs of lost love and dust raising rhythm and blues.

About to release his third album, They Call Me Rico has gathered critical acclaim for breathing new life into a familiar genre and an ability to single-handedly bring down the house!
