Jason Ricci & The Bad Kind
Rock | Memphis TN

At a young age Jason Ricci has compiled a musical resume that most musicians don't achieve in a lifetime. Jason has won the Sonny Boy Blues Society contest, The Mars Music National Harmonica Contest, The Muddy Waters Award and many other accolades. Ricci has been featured on televison as well in various commercials, evening and morning news broadcasts, and on two episodes of Emril Legassi's show "Emril Live". Jason has gigged/toured or worked with (not "jammed with" or "Opened For") Big Al and the Heavy Weights, Jimmy Lloyd Rea, Susan Tedeschi, Billy Gibson, Bobby Little, The Hounds, Nick Curran, Josh Smith, Enrico Crivellaro, Big Bad Smitty, Satan and Adam, Junior Kimbrough, Shawn Kellerman and many more. Jason Ricci is that rare individual that only comes along once in a generation - an artist with the unique ability to help shape and redefine the sound of his chosen instrument and forever change the course of music history. His style is varied and his influences far reaching, having spent countless hours absorbing everything from Sun Ra to Little Walter, the Rolling Stones to the Pixies, Lou Reed to Govt. Mule, and everything in between. The depth of his music crisscrosses the audible landscape leaving no stone unturned as he fully explores blues, jazz, funk, rock, punk, and even drawing inspiration from the current crop of jam bands, all while still retaining the stamp of his own inimitable style.
