2019 Annual Concert Series - Rick & John Trio

In late 2009, Rick & John brought together their musical abilities recreating their favorite sounds of classic rock, pop, and folk. Soon after, they began writing original music that helped in defining their style. The duo is known area wide for their rich harmonies and ear pleasing appeal. Their expressive sound has thrilled generations of music lovers and keeps them coming back for more.

Rick Thompson (acoustic & bass guitar and vocals) demonstrates strong vocal ability, originating from singing blues and rock in his earlier Detroit area band years. John Bonham (acoustic & electric guitars, and vocals) has many music influences including the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton as well as many other guitarists from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. The more recent influences come from many artists using the acoustic guitar as accompaniment.
