My uncles, Rick and Phil, recently put together a band called “The Roof Rats.” The two have played music on and off for 30 years and their experience shows - and I’m not just saying that because they’re family, they really do put it down.
Currently, they play gigs out of Vegas and do authentic covers of pretty well known and lesser known songs. I’m working on getting them to record a track to share here, but studio time is not necessarily in the cards at the moment, but hopefully soon.
This shot is of Rick and his bass. The bass is one of my, low-key, favorite instruments because of its unabashed integrality to the entirety of world music. Cameo’d this guy here also because it was his birthday, yesterday. Happy Birthday, Rick!
