Rick Zeek has been a fixture in the Santa Cruz area acoustic music scene for many years, most often appearing with his partner, Rhan Wilson, in one of the several groups they formed over the years - the most current being Jazz the Dog. Rick will include members of that band: Rhan Wilson, Patti Maxine, Michael Westendorp, and add Olaf Schiappacasse on drums for this special performance.

Rick has been singing most of his life, since his early days at church and grade school back in Pennsylvania. He has performed locally in The Sista Monica Gospel Choir, helped produce and performed in An Altared Christmas and other Altared shows, along with numerous acoustic configurations of friends and bands. These days you can see him playing his acoustic guitar and singing his own renditions of well-loved Americana and country covers (particularly excellent versions of Neil Young songs), plus his own heartfelt originals.

In this show he will be upfront and central, playing mostly his original tunes, along with some select covers, backed by his friends.
