Rick Germanson

Rick Germanson has been a highly in-demand pianist on the New York City Jazz scene for nearly a decade now. Born May 29, 1972, Rick left his native Milwaukee, Wisconsin on the heels of winning the Grand Prize at The American Pianists' Association Jazz Piano Competition in 1996. His recent accomplishments have garnered much adoration from the media and led to him him being chosen as Best of New Talent in 2004 by All About Jazz NYC.

The Rick Germanson Trio has performed at Smoke, Smalls, The Kitano and Fat Cat in N.Y.C., Blues Alley in D.C., The Indianapolis Jazz Festival and The Artists' Quarter in Minneapolis. Currently, the Rick Germanson Duo can be heard every Wednesday and Thursday evening at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse in Manhattan. As a solo pianist, Rick performed five nights a week during a year long residency at the acclaimed Four Seasons Restaurant in 2001, the only musician to ever do so.
