Songwriter/Performer/Philanthropist – The History and Heart of Rico
A manuscript of music starts with staves much like the history of Rico’s life: over 30 years’ experience as sound engineer, producer and stage manager for concerts, tours and festivals; working with Sammy Hagar, Damn Yankees, Social Distortion, Robert Cray, Outlaws, Wynonna Judd, Kenny Loggins, Jimmy Massina, Bronnie Raitt, ShaNaNa, The Shirelles, The Drifters and more; Rico’s own previous bands providing national support for Mr. Big, Kansas, Night Ranger, Quiet Riot, Don Dokken, Pat Travers, Vicious Rumors and many more.
However the notes on those staves – the heart of his music - is reflected in the impact he has on people’s lives. His sound company works with any charity to best facilitate their events. From logistics, talent, music, emcee, stage management and sound reinforcement to marketing support and development. Rico has dedicated the rest of his life to helping others and raising money and awareness for those in need.
