Richie Rivera / Bio

Doing the unexpected is exactly the hallmark of RICHIE RIVERA, who has been hailed by Music Connection magazine in Los Angeles as “one of the most exciting rock drummers around.” From adrenalin-inducing hard rock backbeats to understated pop accompaniment to mind-bending jazz-fusion to musical theater, Richie’s unique blend of flamboyant showmanship, technical mastery and tasteful fluidity have captured the attention of audiences and the industry alike. “Having those unusual influences allows me to throw flavors of one genre into another,” he notes. “In music, the greatest sin is to be boring…and I’m anything but that.”

A dynamic performer and natural entertainer, Richie’s inherent star quality and high energy stage presence make him a standout in front of a live audience. Behind the flurry of spinning sticks is a huge, ear-to-ear smile that radiates all the way to that back row. “That smile is genuine,” he points out, “because life to me is just the space between shows, making each moment on stage such a tremendous release.”
