Soul Singer. Guitar Slinger. Dwight Ritcher is most well known as one half of the Boston supergroup Dwight & Nicole, with NBC's "The Voice," star Nicole Nelson. This Thursday and Friday night he joins forces with hammond organist Jeremy Parker and drummer Benny Benson for a two night throw down of new orleans funk, memphis blues, and deep soul originals not to miss.
Ritcher, Parker and Benson met fifteen years ago at the original House of Blues in Boston. Parker was the house organist. Benson was passing though on a tour. The three found that they had an undeniable energy performing together.
"Jeremy and Benny are like family to me. They both have such passion and drive for music- these are going to be two special nights- a real family reunion!" Exclaimed Dwight.
Dwight Ritcher has been nominated for multiple Boston Music Awards and has shared the stage with many luminaries including Dr. John, Maceo Parker, Robert Randolph, Otis Rush, Chuck Berry, Dave Brubeck, and Norah Jones. His music has appeared on ABC, A&E, and Lifetime television. He appeared as himself in the documentry "Where's the Music At."
CHRISTINA AND FRAN
Christina and Fran are a duo from Boston Massachusetts, who write music featuring soulful, dynamic singing, tight arrangements, and a unique ability to transcend genres and styles. Embracing the songwriting traditions of artists like Pete Seeger, Don Covay and Nina Simone, they focus primarily on quality story telling over flashy solos and virtuosity. Having met through mutual musician friends, it didn't take long for them to realize that they had a special musical chemistry. "When I heard Christina sing I was floored. Then I find out that she loves people like Rick Danko, Ernst Tubb and old country music. Its been easy working with her from the beginning", says Fran. "Its not easy to find a guitarist with such tasteful dynamics and striking song writing ability. I have seriously lucked out." says Christina. The duo are off to a great start, releasing their first single, "Walk with the moon", and returning from a succesful week long tour of Mexico City, MX. They continue to write new material for their EP release in the spring of 2015
