Grammy Award-nominated jazz musicians The Rippingtons will bring their award-winning music to Access Showroom at Aliante Casino + Hotel + Spa on Saturday, Feb. 18.
Formed in 1986 by the group’s only original member, Russ Freeman, The Rippingtons have been performing jazz music for more than 30 years across the United States, and has released nearly 20 albums. Their first album, “Moonlighting,” was well-received by critics and known for the song “She Likes to Watch.” In the early 1990’s, the group released its first #1 album, “Welcome to the St. James’ Club,” followed by “Curves Ahead,” an album influenced by Freeman’s move to Colorado. The group continued to release albums throughout the 90’s and 00’s. The group’s 15th album, “Modern Art,” was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2009 for Best Pop Instrumental Album.
Freeman continues to helm the group and released The Rippington’s most recent album, “True Stories,” in June 2016.
