Listen to Bombay Rickey.

Praised as “a true treat for the adventurous ear,” Bombay Rickey is a five-piece band with a unique sound evocative of 1960s movie soundscapes. The group plays both covers and original music that borrow equally from the worlds of surf rock, cumbia, spaghetti-Western, and Bollywood, balanced out with operatic vocals.

Bombay Rickey’s debut album, Cinefonia, was named best debut of 2014 by New York Music Daily and received the Vox Pop Award for Best Eclectic Album from the International Music Awards. Most recently, Bombay Rickey was invited to create an opera cabaret based on the life of Yma Sumac for the prestigious PROTOTYPE Festival in New York City. The sold-out shows were hailed as a “rocking musical show” by the Wall Street Journal.

Like the cocktail it was named for, Bombay Rickey mixes soaring vocal lines, smoky guitar, sinewy alto saxophone and dexterous percussion together into something unique and complex, while still accessible and a lot of fun.
