The New Hip Replacements
The New Hip Replacements is a high-energy, 9-piece cover band that plays a tasty range of horn-driven R&B, Motown, and soul faves, blues classics, and raunchy, raspy, hip-shakin’ “grit rock.” Your crowd is sure to have a blast––and to boogie. The band puts out a wicked-fun wall of sound with our male vocalist/trumpeter, saxophone man, female vocalist, keyboardist, two guitarists and a kick-ass bass, drums rhythm section, and congas. Led by front man and trumpet player Rick Brandon (known to his fans as “Raucous Rico”) you’ll swing to vocal stylings that the Sonoma Index-Tribune says “have more gravel than a cement truck.” Read all about it. The band is based in California’s North Bay, and plays in and around Mill Valley, Oakland, Sonoma/Napa and Grass Valley/Nevada City.
