Rick Atkins / Bio

Got my first guitar in 1967, I was 13 years old and it wasn't too long after that I could play all the chords to House Of The Risin' Sun and Louie Louie. My first payin' gig was in 1970, the 5 piece band made $50. Played in various rock bands with some gigs here and there, nothing real steady. In the mid 80's got with some real good musicians and formed Vital Signs, my first band with steady payin' gigs. Have been in some good bands since always rockin' the Tri State area. I played with the Kickin' Country band in the late 90's for a few years. Then with Southern Impact from 2002. Then in 2007 hooked up with Dave again, and Kickin' Country rocked regional and local venues, with it's unique blend of classic rock and country. The summer of 2014 has brought about some changes. Getting back with some old band mates from Southern Impact in the 90's and early 2000. We got back together doing a couple charity gigs and decided to have a go at it again. I have played every venue in the area with some of the best tri-state bands and musicians. A few of the area bands I have played with are Atlantis, Vital Signs, Southern Impact and Bandits. When bands have some down time, I tend some of my personal projects, writing and arranging songs and fill in for other musicians.
