Sudo Nano is a cover band serving the Greater Cincinnati Area that plays everything from indie/classic/modern rock to country and blues.
Ricky Nye, the driving force behind Cincinnati’s annual BLUES & BOOGIE PIANO SUMMIT (1999 to 2017), Ricky has been inducted into the International Boogie Woogie Hall Of Fame, voted “Blues Artist Of The Year 2019” in Cincinnati’s CEA Awards and ”Best Local Musician” by CityBeat Magazine & “Best Of Cincinnati 2018” reader’s poll.
For over twenty years Ricky has maintained notoriety on an international level, performing his infectious blend of American roots music in solo, duo and combo settings throughout Europe. Ricky also celebrates a long-time collaboration with “The Paris Blues Band”, the very finest purveyors of swingin’ blues and boogie in Paris, France, and in the U.S. Ricky leads a dynamic trio/quartet known as RICKY NYE INC. https://www.rickynye.com/
Cynthia Girtley, the “New Orleans Gospel Diva,” (New Orleans) began singing and playing piano in public at a young age, performing throughout the US at age fourteen!
During her career she has traveled and performed at several major venues and festivals throughout the United States and abroad. In 2019, Cynthia was inducted into the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Archives.
Although “Gospel” is the inspiration and heart of her singing, her love for music is not only displayed when she sings gospel but when asked and given the opportunity she feels free and loves to bellow out and express the passion and beauty found in the “blues, jazz, boogie and yes.. opera.” http://neworleansgospeldiva.
Michael Kaeshammer began performing club, theatre, and festival stages throughout Europe in his early teens and continued on that trajectory after emigrating to Canada’s West Coast with his family in the mid-‘90s. His first studio album dropped in 1996 and spurred a consistent sequence of heralded releases and high-profile international performances.
Those opportunities have been as wide-reaching as the artist’s subsequent breadth of style, and include: opening slots for the likes of Ray Charles and Anne Murray; stints backing singers like Marva Wright, the late blues queen of New Orleans; co-writing sessions with rockers Randy Bachman and Colin James; official Olympic Games performances in several world cities; and TV specials on numerous networks – including on PBS. Kaeshammer has released thirteen albums and been nominated for seven Juno Awards. He has also received the West Coast Music Award for Musician of the Year and Entertainer of the Year. http://kaeshammer.com/
