Formed in 2007, the Rick Sickmen Band (known as 'RSB'), has been playing the originals and covers at local VIriginia clubs and parties to enthusiastic crowds. Now their first ever EP debuts six of Rick Sickmen's most popular original songs and the hard-driving 'Back in the Doghouse' by RSB co-singer/songwriter, Andy Sutherland. The RSB sound is classic rock and blues with Saxophone and harmony vocals creating their trademark 'Roadhouse Rock' sound. Keyboards add to the overall richness and expressiveness. Rick Sickmen remembers playing guitar as early as when he played Johnny B Goode on the radio as a budding 7 year old guitarist. His playing style is influenced by greats such as Clapton, Hendrix, and SRV. With dozens of songs in his portfolio, Rick writes from the heart about topics such as life and love and situations that move us all. This RSB EP also includes one of Andy Sutherland's harder rocking originals about a situation most of us can relate to. Like all the songs on this EP, the hard drive of 'Back In The Doghouse' belies a note-for-note craftsmanship that raises RSB above the ranks of other midatlantic rock bands. Other members of RSB include veteran bassist and saxophone players Morgan Henry and Mark Moccio, both with experience in dozens of bands of many varieties that gives their performances depth and breadth. Ed Eaves delivers rock solid drumbeats for this EP, which draw on his equally varied and long time experiences behind the drum kit. RSB's debut EP is the long anticipated release some of Rick Sickmen's classic songs with a bonus track by Andy Sutherland. This EP is the first introduction onto the stage of a band that combines all the members' varied experiences, all distilled into one signature record.
