Ricki Derek

There is a performer in Dallas known for his magical voice and his ability to entertain like the greats of yesterday. His name is Ricki Derek and to label him a lounge singer would not be far from true, but an understatement nonetheless. To hear him sing, you would think "Old Blue Eyes" was right there crooning. Always dressed for the occasion, Ricki makes you feel like you've got a front row ticket to an old school show on the strip.

Ricki just looks like he's having a good time. His interaction with the audience and his band make each show exciting and different. There's that old school attention to detail that make a Ricki Derek Show, just that, a show.

Whether he is crooning with the Vegas Six, big band, or even his trio, Ricki will have you dancing till the wee small hours of the morning.

"It's difficult to tell whether or not it's Derek's voice or THE VOICE…"
the Met, April 1999

"Ricki sounds just like late-era Frank…
he's honed that act to a fine edge."
The Dallas Morning News

"You swing like a mother baby! Thanks for your coolness on a hot night…
Frank is proud of you somewhere up there. Ring-A-Ding-Ding always."
