||ick was born and raised in Yonkers, New York and moved to the Midwest in 1985.
A trombone player through his "school years", Rick's high school needed a bass player for a production of Gypsy. He picked up a bass for the 1st time as a high school senior and fell in love with it. Rick went on to play bass for his college jazz band, along with numerous church and semi pro show productions in New York.
From 1985-2006, Rick was busy doing the family/career thing, limiting his playing to Sunday church services. He was thrilled when asked to join the Overtones and be able to perform again on a more regular basis.
Rick is married with 5 children, and is the Sales Manager for KMZU Radio out of Carrollton, Missouri.
