RICK DERRINGER BAND       AUGUST 26, 2017        8PM


Young entertainer Rick Derringer was just 17 when his band The McCoys  TM recorded the No.1 hit "Hang on Sloopy" in the summer of 1965, knocking "Yesterday" by The Beatles out of the top spot.  The McCoys had enjoyed four years of successful touring, when Rick merged his talents with Johnny Winter in 1969 forming Johnny Winter And (And reffering to The McCoys).


Throughout the 70's and 80's the popular Derringer appeared on umberous albus with artists Alice Cooper, Richie Havens, Tod Rundgren and Steely Dan.  The list also included Cyndi Lauper, Barbra Streisand, Kiss, Mason Ruffner and Madam X.  In the mid-80s, Derringer discovered Weird Al Yankovic, producig music for Gramy winning albums and videos.,  Derringer's productions of the Michael Jackson parodies, the No. 1 hit "Eat It", and "Who's Fat:, have been Yankovic's most successful recordings.


After DBA the next project was truly a work from the heart and soul of Rick and his wife Brenda Jean (Jenda Hall).  Entitled Aiming 4 Heaven, it brought forth their devotion to God and put it into song with help from their children, Lory & Martin.  That project opened doors for a worldwide release on Reborn Records.


In 2007, Rick released Rockin' America, featuring the patriotic song Real American, which has been used by The President, during political campaigns, and on the hit FX series, "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia".  In 2009, Rick released yet another display of blues talent on Knighted by the Blues, again featuring wife Jenda as co-writer on several songs.  In 2010, Rick released an amazing compilation of Freddie, Albert and B.B.King on The Three Kings of the Blues.  And finally, the year 2013 marks the 40th anniversary of Rick Derringer's All American Boy debut solo album and his long journey of successes as producer, songwriter, and player throughout the years.


It seems like almost too much story to take in at one sitting, but the most surprising part is ... after more than four decades he's still going strong!
