~ R n R In Concert ~
Soul-Jazz Stars Rick Braun & Richard Elliot Reunite for Funky, Horn-Powered Tour
It was only a matter of time before these two award winning heavyweights of contemporary Jazz teamed up to forge the most anticipated live tour of 2022.
Rick Braun and Richard Elliot, seasoned showmen, with their own individual signature sounds, promise to give their fans what they’ve yearned for once again. On their own, Braun and Elliot have accumulated large fan bases; and together on stage, along with the addition of their own horn section, will drive this united front home and into the fan’s favorite concert memories.
Scotland-born, Los Angeles-raised Richard Elliot began his recording career playing on songs by Motown legends Smokey Robinson and The Temptations. He’s toured with Melissa Manchester and Tower of Power and is an icon of the contemporary Jazz scene. Elliot continues to stop the show each time he plays his classic signature version of "When A Man Loves A Woman."
Allentown, Pennsylvania native Rick Braun started his professional career by writing the top 20 pop hit "Here With Me" for REO Speedwagon. He has played in bands backing Rod Stewart, Tom Petty and Crowded House as well as successfully fronting his own solo tours.
