West Kortright Centre presents Bombay Rickey on Saturday, October 22 at 7pm-9pm! Called "the future of music" (New York Music Daily), Bombay Rickey is a five-piece band that defies easy categorization. With a unique sound evocative of '60s movie soundscapes, the band plays both covers and original music that borrow equally from the worlds of surf rock, cumbia, spaghetti-Western, and Bollywood, balanced out with a little coloratura soprano. Though only in existence for a couple of years, Bombay Rickey has already become a fixture at the world famous Brooklyn club Barbés, performed live on WFMU radio, and has had an original song featured in a television commercial for Citibank. The band features Kamala Sankaram: vocals, accordion; Drew Fleming: guitar, vocals; and Jeff Hudgins: alto saxophone, vocals; with Gil Smuskowitz: upright bass; and Brian Adler: percussion. All longtime NY musicians, the five members of Bombay Rickey have done previous work with John Zorn, Phillip Glass, Anthony Braxton, Chicha Libre, and Alarm Will Sound, to name a few. Bombay Rickey released their debut album, Cinefonia, on September 13, 2014, which won the “Best Eclectic Album” at the 2015 Independent Music Awards.
