About Rikki & The Band
There is a magic that happens when the right people connect who share the same passion. Rikki Nicks, tribute to Stevie Nicks and Fleetwood Mac is one of those bands. Each member has played ‘everywhere’ and through their travels, they found each other… and it works!
Born in California, raised in Louisiana, and growing up to be a Toronto rock star!! Little Rikki sang in her first recording studio when she was 4 years old. She spent most of her childhood in John Capek’s home studio in Los Angeles, playing at her father’s feet while he wrote hit songs like “The Rhythm Of My Heart” for Rod Stewart, “Love Has The Power” for Toto and “Victorious” for Chicago. Her mother also came from a musical background, with a degree in Vocal Performance from LSU.
Now Rikki brings to life the vocal style and look of Stevie Nicks! In fact she is often called a dead ringer for the young Stevie! Since 2008, Rikki has toured throughout Canada and the USA, paying tribute to the reigning Queen Of Rock And Roll. Just like the real Stevie Nicks, Rikki met her soulmate while doing what she loves. Now Rikki and Kyle are as wildly passionate about each other as they are about their music… it shows!
Their magnetic chemistry on stage will send chills down your spine as this leather and lace duo, backed with their favourite band members go their own way, together!
The legend lives on…
