Rick is a very busy guy. He’s several times nominated for, and holds the title of Forest City London Music Awards Jazz Vocalist 2019.
He’s performed on many stages around Ontario at Huron Country Playhouse, Drayton Festival Theatre, Port Stanley Festival Theatre, Blyth Festival Theatre, Bluewater Summer Playhouse, and elsewhere… Locally, some stages include The Grand Theatre, Wolf Hall, McManus Theatre, Paul Davenport, The Palace and more. He served as Artistic Director at Port Stanley Festival Theatre, The Bluewater Summer Playhouse and currently LINK theatre & concerts in London…
Rick is no stranger at Aeolian Hall and for working with Bryan Gloyd over the years. They worked together on the Phoenix Sessions and have performed many benefits together. Bryan joined Rick for LINK theatre & concerts, a really Retro CROONER Christmas 2016 at The McManus Theatre at the Grand Theatre.
Rick essentially held a monthly spot as Rick Kish & Friends at Jazz On The Thames at Michael’s On The Thames from February 2019, through every possible opportunity available during the pandemic, to December 2022. Shows he’s created in the area include The Crooner Christmas Show & The Crooner Show, the latter most recently in Ingersoll at ITOPA and the Globus Theatre in Bobcaygeon, ON this past May & June. He’s looking forward to heading to The Century Church Theatre in Hillsburgh, Ontario in October with The Crooner Show. Christmas shows dates TBA.
Bryan Gloyd’s happy place is at the piano working out some different approach to a jazz standard – or anything he’s just heard on Spotify and would like to explore. His background includes church and some recording work and lots of fun times accompanying vocalists. Really good times include working with Grammy Winner Matt Alber, songwriter Marc Jordan and Canadian National Jazz Award Winner Denzal Sinclaire.
Currently he is supporting the Aeolian as book keeper and Acting General Manager. He recently retired from a 30 year career in Animal Nutrition and is now down to just 1 job.
