Edgar Winter Band
Edgar Winter Band
By the time Edgar Winter left his hometown of Beaumont Texas in the 1960's, he was already proficient in every aspect of music,
A child prodigy, Edgar has found success in music, film and television.

Edgar's immediate impact on the record business with his first record, "Entrance", was followed up with two hit albums with his band White Trash, and he topped that success with The Edgar Winter Group, creating the number one hit "Frankenstein" as well as the ever-popular "Free Ride". The album "They Only Come Out At Night" peaked at number 3 on the Billboard charts and stayed on the chart for 80 weeks; on it's way to double platinum.

Edgar invented the keyboard body strap, an innovation that allows him the freedom to move around the stage during his high-energy multi-instrument performances. His live appearances have occurred around the world, and Edgar is known for his own scintillating shows, as well as his riveting collaborations with the likes of Ringo Starr and his All-Starr Band.

Edgar's music can be heard in no fewer than fifteen film and television projects, including "The Simpsons”, "Wayne's World”, “Air America"," Wag The Dog", "Encino Man" and "My Cousin Vinny", as well as advertising campaigns such as Miller Highlife, and most recently the "Tupac Resurrection" film, which includes his powerful song "Runnin' (Dying To Live)", which charted #5 on the R&B/Hip Hop Charts. Produced by Eminem, the song was part of a soundtrack album that was number one for eight weeks. His live TV appearances include David Letterman and Jimmy Kimmel.

Edgar's live shows constantly receive rave reviews. His music is always evolving and he is a master of stretching his skill and imagination to produce amazing results. He also is a prolific writer, with a volume of poetry and a collection of exciting stories in his writing repertoire.

Edgar is a musician at the top of his game, and he's proved he can do it all.
Rick Derringer
Rick Derringer
Guitar great, vocalist and entertainer Rick Derringer was just
17 when his band The McCoysTM 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 referring to The
McCoys). Rick was the only producer of all gold and platinum
Winter Brothers recordings.

'71 Rick was featured on three records, "Johnny Winter And",
"Johnny Winter And-Live" and "Edgar Winter's White Trash". Johnny Winter "And" featured the first version of Derringer's "Rock and Roll Hoochie Koo" which was also released as a single, then selected again for "And - Live".

Eventually, the busy Derringer joined Edgar Winter's White
Trash full-time and produced the gold LP, "Roadwork".
Derringer's solo album, All American Boy was released in '73
with the now already popular "Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo",
this time as a 'hit' single. Rick was writer/producer of Johnny
Winter's Still Alive and Well album and player/producer of the
hit album,They Only Come Out At Night. The latter featured
the No. 1, Grammy nominated monster hit, "Frankenstein" and
"Free Ride". In 1976 Rick created the Derringer Band.

He released four albums and in '83 returned to his solo career
with the LP,Good Dirty Fun.Throughout the 70's and 80's the
popular Derringer appeared on numerous albums with artists
Alice Cooper, Richie Havens, Todd Rundgren and Steely Dan,
Air Supply, Chick Corea, Joe Walsh, . The list also includes
Cyndi Lauper, Barbra Streisand, Kiss,and hundreds of other
living and past legends.

In the mid-80's,Derringer discovered Weird Al Yankovic,
producing music for top Grammy-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. It was also in the 90's that Rick was selected to be producer/writer/performer of the World Wrestling Federation LP's. Hulk Hogan's theme song, "I Am A Real American" was written and performed by Rick as a part of these projects.

Derringer was once again sought after by Edgar Winter and in
1990, performed for the LP, Edgar Winter and Rick Derringer
Live in Japan. Then in 1999 Rick and Edgar were back together
again for their collaboration on his Winter Blues CD. Derringer
also recorded four blues CD's starting in '93 with Back To the Blues followed by Electra Blues, Blues Deluxe and his 2000 release Jackhammer Blues. At about that same period Derringer, who seems to be constantly in motion,released his destined-to-be-classic Tend the Fire in Europe to rave reviews and is eagerly expected by his loyal fans here in the US. The year 2001 was another busy one for Rick. His venture back into Rock & Roll with Vanilla Fudge superstars Carmine Appice and Tim Bogert produced a recording of intense synergy D B A (for
Derringer, Bogert & Appice) with vocals, writing and instrumentals shared by all three. 2004 promised a reprise for
Derringer and Appice, with the release of D-N-A. After D B A.
We can't forget the Winter of 2002, where Rick ventured into a whole new musical world Smooth Jazz. Interest in Rick Derringer - Free Ride grew quickly at radio, and the second single "Hot And Cool" (in the 'Radio and Records' top 20
for 5 months, and number 42 for the year) showed Derringer
right at home in the format.

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! Look for a show in your city and experience Charlie Torres and Kenn Moutenot performing their
hearts out to Rick's rock and roll anthems coming in 2015 -16
with RICK DERRINGER’S 50th Golden Anniversary in this
