Nashville’s own Funk/Soul artist, Mike Hicks, will bring his #getfunkedup show to 3rd and Lindsley for a shared night with special guest, Ryan Connors of Dynamo. Hicks, well known for his many side man and session stints with Rascal Flatts, Keb’ Mo’ and Johnny Lang, and a regular on Sunday Night Soul at the 5 Spot, is one of Nashville’s most beloved talents.
His Freshman album, This Is Life, highlights the gift of his writing ability, the moral message of his music, and the production talents of both himself and James Waddell. His latest release Come Go With Me, features Grammy winner PJ Morton and is available on all platforms.
“Mike’s music is infectious,” says promoter Jill Block. “His love for music - those that create and share it with him - comes through in every fiber of his being. When you experience Mike and his 15 piece band on stage, you can’t help but be moved, energized and thrilled.”
Ryan Connors is a pianist, producer and arranger based out of Nashville, Tennessee. Since his arrival in Nashville 7 years ago, he has started the jazz/funk/R&B touring group Dynamo, co-founded a production company, produced on various projects, and collaborated with notable artists. Ryan’s momentum into the heart of Nashville’s music scene is due to his passion for seeking and creating a musical community locally while working to expand this reach and make connections to musicians throughout the country.
