New Mavis CD featuring RHB due out...

Posted 05/25/10

Mavis Staples new CD, which features Rick, Hodge and Jeff, is due to be released late summer/early fall on Anti Records. The record was produced by Jeff Tweedy (of Wilco) and is a killer. Look for it in all the finest record stores (there's at least one in LA), online shopping bazaar's (bizzare's?) and of course coffee shops and car washes.

RH & Booker T

Posted 04/11/09

Rick toured with legendary STAX soul organ monster Booker T for 3 weeks in spring 2009 in support of Booker's Grammy winning CD Potato Hole. The tour started on the east coast, then over to the Netherlands, back to San Francisco and all up into the great Northwest. The band included buddies Ronnie James Weber & Troy Gonyea, alumnus of the Fabulous T-Bird's.

Raves for live Mavis disc!

" 'We've come tonight to bring you some joy, some happiness, inspiration and some positive vibrations!' Mavis Staples tells the audience at Chicago's Hideout club, a promise she stylishly fulfills in a set drawn predominantly from last year's Ry Cooder produced We'll Never Turn Back album of civil rights anthems and blues.
