AMERICAN ROOTS, BLUES & SOUL
Ritcher’s history begins n New Jersey. He grew up surrounded by music. Rock from the shore. Rap from the city. Pop in the schools. And jazz…His grandfather played piano/banjo, and had a big band in the forties. Dwight remembers him playing family parties as a kid, “Granddad would be playing stride and I’d be next to the piano playing telephone books with drumsticks, while my family danced and sang. His side of the family were all musical. His sister was a jazz singer, and his son (my uncle) played bass, and used to jam with Bruce Springsteen down in Asbury.”
