I really love this band and am so excited to have them play for us at our service on Sunday, May 18th – Bombay Rickey!
Called “the future of music” (New York Music Daily), Bombay Rickey is a five-piece band from Ditmas Park, Brooklyn that writes original music straddling the boundaries of surf, cumbia, spaghetti-Western, and Bollywood, balanced out with a little coloratura soprano. The band features Kamala Sankaram: vocals, accordion; Drew Fleming: guitar, vocals; Jeff Hudgins: alto saxophone, vocals; 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, Anthony Braxton, Chicha Libre, and Alarm Will Sound, to name a few. Bombay Rickey will release its debut album, Cinefonia, this fall. And, they’ll play for us at our final NYC service of the season, the theme will be MEMORY. Yeehaw!
