RICKY G's VINTAGE BOUTIQUE Cover

Ricky G’s Vintage Boutique is a one of a kind live concert event where vintage fashion and music collide. An original experience that honors funk and soul music of the 60’s, while receiving some modern updates fit for today’s hippest audiences. Dress to Impress, Wear your Flyest Threads with Finesse, and be Ready to Boogie with the Best, at San Diego’s hippest get down, Ricky G’s Vintage Boutique @rickyg_______ .... A New York transplant, Ricky G came up playing guitar with San Diego based funk groups (Surefire Soul Ensemble, B*Side Players) before ultimately landing with legendary saxophonist and hometown hero Karl Denson of The Rolling Stones. Fresh off a JazzFest run in New Orleans with Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, Ricky returned to San Diego with the inspiration to start a series of curated concert experiences. He’s had the opportunity to perform with a number of legendary funk and rock artists through his career, including, Robert Randolph, Ivan Neville, George Porter Jr. (The Meters/Dr. John) Chuck Leavell (Rolling Stones/Allman Brothers/George Harrison/Eric Clapton/John Mayer), Bernard Fowler (Rolling Stones/Herbie Hancock), Daniel Ponder, and Adam Deitch (Lettuce/John Scofield) to name a few. I’ve also worked closely with Grammy Award Winning Producer Kamau Kenyatta (Gregory Porter-Liquid Spirit/Take Me to the Alley). Ricky approaches every artistic situation with reverence and respect for those who’ve laid the path before him, and for this reason he’s become one of San Diego most beloved musicians in the live concert circuit. @rickyg_______ Kevin Lum is a recent San Diego resident, who played keyboards with legendary ska outfit, The English Beat, for 10 years. Since moving to SD, he’s also played with local groups including Shakedown String Band, and has proved to be an integral piece of all of Ricky G’s concerts in San Diego. David Carano is a San Diego Native, who has played in many legendary local groups on bass and guitar. He’s one of SD most gifted and loved artists. Steve Haney leads an internationally known latin funk band called Jungle Fire. He’s a multi talented visual artist and percussionist, and adds a world music flavor to all that he is a part of.
