Made up of half the members of Ft. Lauderdale’s Heavy Pets, The Ricca Project may remind some of Little Feat, thanks to its jam-based, yet very consistent instrumentation.
This weekend, the funky power-trio will be at the Dunedin Brewery for two free shows. On Friday, it’s a hip-hop set, while Saturday night features all Ricca Project material on the setlist.
Joe Bonamassa recently put the trio’s latest single “Midnight Rider” on his “Keeping The Blues Alive” playlist on Spotify, so since he’ll also be in town this weekend, perhaps he’ll pop into Dunedin for a “drink.”
James Dustan and Photon open the shows on Friday and Saturday, respectively, and doors for both gigs at Dunedin Brewery—located at 937 Douglas Ave. in Tampa—are at 9 p.m.
UPDATED 02/17/22 1:10 p.m. Updated to show the shows on Friday and Saturday.
