What do you get when you cross boxing coach, a bricklayer, and an English teacher? Lyrical stonework with a punch!
Richard & Somebody's Kids is an easy going Canadian band that plays fun and gritty original country/rock and bluesy music. Grab a ringside seat and enjoy the full card.
​With the influence of americana, country, and folk, this unique band has a little something for everyone. This is storytelling with a twist. The rocky blues licks and Texas slide swing with a driving keyboard bass, and the filling sound of Hammond organ.
Richard's unique story-telling and insight to human nature comes from decades of training boxers in Halifax. Richard's command of the stage toes the line of duality between an old school fighter and an insightful musical poet. With a wry sense of humour, he playfully banters with Julian and Melissa on stage and somehow always manages to pull ringside fans into his corner as he rolls with the punches.
