Ricky Medlin Jr. has been dubbed “Rat Pack Ricky” by musicians, restaurant owners, and audiences alike. Due in part by the style of music that he performs and his various samplings of music from the “Great American Songbook.”
Ricky has received critical acclaim from music professionals and loyal clients that have witnessed his live performances. He has been the recipient of singing awards – including a worldwide talent contest sponsored by the United States Air Force.
Ricky has performed shows at the Legendary Copacabana, in NYC, the Light Nightclub, Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas, the Avalon Ball, located at the historic casino, Catalina Island. He’s also performed shows with audiences of over 6,000 at Budweiser. He currently entertains at special events, Fairs, restaurants and night clubs throughout Los Angeles and Ventura counties. He continues to be a featured artist at the historic Cicada Club in downtown Los Angeles, as well as the Smoke House, in Burbank. Ricky was credited with breaking through an elusive barrier by being asked to open and close for two up and coming Rock bands at the private club, “On The Rox,” located above the historic Roxy on the Sunset Strip. A rocker commented: “The real Rat Pack are probably raising a glass to Ricky for being one of a limited number of crooners ever to perform at this historically Rock & Roll venue.” Ricky’s performance earned him numerous accolades and an open invitation to return for future performances….stay tuned!
