After months on the road, Richie’s home for the holidays, which makes for a funky Christmas for his fans! Richie appears with Chris Botti Dec 12 thru Jan 8 for Chris’s annual Christmas residency. But things get really hot Dec 23 when Richie brings his own band, Nuclear Fusion to the Blue Note stage. Richie will provide his unique sound right after the Botti band’s last set at the late session (11:59pm) at the Blue Note. The line-up includes Ben Butler-guitar, Lee Pearson-drums, Ben Stivers-keyboards and Sy Smith on vocals. Of course Richie will be supplying plenty of bottom! Bottom line – a very jazzy holiday season coming up! Check the calendar for more info.
