Born: July 17 Primary Instrument: Piano
Rick Eldridge is a native of Richmond, Virginia where he began gigging professionally at 16. He played the piano for several bands. A versatile musician, Rick played several instruments. I learned to play the instruments that I typically use so that I could arrange and voice them, myself. Soon, he became a bandleader and eventually moved to Vriginia Beach.
In addition to gigging and working as a studio musician, Rick started a jazz record label company, Pentagram Records, and released his first solo piano CD, Solo Flights. It was recorded on a 7' Yamaha concert grand.
Now residing in the DC metro area, Rick was recently featured on yet another CD and released it on the Pentagram label. That CD, Come Fly With Me will be released in June.
