Ricky Medlin 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’s been the recipient of singing awards – including a worldwide talent contest sponsored by the United States Air Force.
Ricky recently performed two shows at the legendary Copacabana in New York City,! and a show at the historic Avalon Ball, on Catalina Island! He continues to be a return artist at some historic venues in Los Angeles, Burbank, and Hollywood: The Wilshire Country Club, the Cicada Club, as well as the Smoke House. Ricky was credited with breaking through an elusive barrier by being asked to open and close for two up and coming Rock bands – The Strips, and Dead Poet Society, at the exclusive club “On The Rox,” located just above the 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!
Ricky is a published artist performing various cover songs on his album titled “Rat Pack Ricky.” He also released a Christmas Album called “The Christmas Classics.” I hope that you’ll give them a listen on any of the following sites: Amazon, Apple, iTunes, iHeartRadio, YouTube, Spotify, CD Baby, and Reverbnation.
