Welcome

 

We are sad to have to say that Wade Hickam, our great blues guitarist and vocalist, passed away today, March 26, 2020, from the Coronavirus. Wade was a gifted guitarist who loved and understood the blues. He will be missed by all of us. R.I. P. Wade.

With the new "stay at home" regulations taking effect our April 4th gig at Stockton's has been cancelled.. Thank you and stay safe.

The Moe Ribbs Blues Band consists of  a core of seasoned performers starting with  sensational blues guitarist Wade Hickam who fronted a popular local blues band, Night Train, for ten years, Will Bagby aka The Jack Hammer (drums) who has decades of experience playing with bands in the LA area and now in Seattle , Ed Lynch, a top bass player, and one of the best blues singers around, Nick Nickolas a long time pro and a true master on guitar and vocals, and Rich Greenberg (harmonica) who has been blowing the blues since the late 1960s.  We play Chicago blues in the style of (and to honor) the men and women who came before us like Muddy Waters, Otis Rush, Albert King, Koko Taylor, Magic Sam and others. Playing both originals and covers we offer blues the way you like it with feeling and so greasy you better bring a bib.
