Rick Hammond Blues Band / Bio

The Rick Hammond Band has existed since 2001, playing the kind of Blues that dancers enjoy. The current lineup is by far the most cohesive, performing a combination of Jump Blues, Rocking Blues, and traditional Blues. The band plays charged, high powered electric performances and also more mellow acoustic Americana Blues.
The Band has recently performed at a variety of venues, from intimate clubs and casinos, to large outdoor events. (Yes, we play blues at casinos and that is rare in Northern Nevada!)
The Rick Hammond Band recently made the Semifinals at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN. We are hoping to keep the momentum growing with hard work, new bookings, and a lot of good times!
The Rick Hammond Band members are:
Bruce Seidel on Drums and backing vocals
Freddy Mills on Harmonica and Vocals
Kevin Vidal on Bass and backing vocals
Rick Hammond on Guitar and Vocals
