The Ride came about as an expansion of a 3pc. Band between Wayne Ritchie (drums, vocals), Matt O’Rourke (guitar, vocals) and Mark Ferry (bass, vocals). To add a singing keyboard player was necessary to realize the true goal, which was to be able to play anything for any audience. Ed Judd joined the team and brought with him not only another voice and keyboards, but also saxophone and rhythm guitar. Immediate chemistry between the players and new enthusiasm for the song list potential lit a fire that couldn’t be put out. Although the individual members have enjoyed success in Las Vegas for many years, the lineup is relatively new. The players are excited to bring together their years of experience to create a great band and perform some of the greatest music ever written. We hope you enjoy “The Ride”.
