Rich Lewis Band


 As many people know, Rich Lewis of Minneapolis is an extremely gifted pipe maker and repair technician. He's the authorized tech for Ser Jacopo, Radice, Gepetto and many other brands.


 What many pipe smokers probably don't know is that Rich is also an extremely talented musician who fronts a band bearing his name as singer and song writer. Rich calls it his "night job".

That's Rich flanked by Dan (bass) and Kory (percussion).


 The Rich Lewis Band has just released their first CD, "One Party Too Many".

Of the 11 tracks on the CD, 10 are Rich's originals and they are great.

A few words from Rich Lewis about the band and their music.

 The Rich Lewis Band plays a soulful mix of R&B, New Orleans and Motown. This blend of musical styles creates an infectious sound that makes you want to stomp your feet or shed a tear.

I have been playing around the Minneapolis area for over 25 years. I was a founding member of the band The Explodo Boys back in the mid 70’s and have played with many other bands over the years. Our drummer Kory Badertscher played and recorded with the legendary Dave Ray for nearly two decades. He and our bass player Dan Schoenbauer have been together as a rhythm section for over 25 years.

We have always been true to our hearts playing music we love. With our vast song list which includes many original songs, you never know what might be played on any given night. The band will also expand at times to 4 or 5 pieces with horns and piano added as with several of the tracks on our CD. If you get the chance to hear our CD, we hope you enjoy it, and come and see us if you're in the Twin Cities area.
