Ronnie Hicks & Masheen Company Band: Ronnie Hicks and Masheen Co.
Show bands and house bands are the unsung heroes of R&B and blues. They need to have impeccable chops, quick-fire improvisational instincts, and the ability to both warm up a stage and keep it burning after being summoned, often at a moment’s notice, to accompany front-line acts whose repertoires they may have had to learn virtually overnight...Keyboardist Ronnie Hicks and his Mahseen Company formed in the mid-‘70s, they’ve recorded and performed with artists ranging from veterans like Cicero Blake and Artie “Blues Boy” White through younger-generation singers such as Nellie “Tiger” Travis to journeymen like blues-rocker Jimmy Nick. It goes without saying, then, that versatility is their stock in trade, and when they get the opportunity to have an entire show to themselves, they strut it like a peacock.  Hicks, a deft instrumentalist who leavens his church-honed emotionality with jazz-tinged rhythmic and harmonic dexterity, is also a solid  vocalist and an accomplished showman: I’ve seen him segue from a blues warhorse like “Hoochie Coochie Man” into an impishly exuberant Culture Club cover without missing a beat, and at times like that, his trickster-like glee at confounding his audience’s expectations is almost as enjoyable as the music. -David Whites
