Rigbi Comes to Rockwood Music Hall, 7/20
Rigbi is coming to the Rockwood Music Hall Stage 1 in New York on July 20.
"I would love to experience Rigbi in a live setting as I could imagine the energy that comes out during their set." -Ear To The Ground
Whether it's Rigbi's shifts in up-beat kicks to melodic, gentle rhythms or the impeccable attention to instrumental detail, there is a unique and wonderful aire to their music that has already caught the attention of music critics from the U.S. to across the pond.
Listen to the first single "It's Elementary" on Soundcloud.
There is something magnetic, vulnerable, dangerous, and electric about Rigbi. Growing up in a small rural town in New Jersey, Rigbi has spent years fine tuning the recording and writing process. Exploring different mindsets and environments within thier music from the beautiful landscapes of Northern, NJ - specifically Sparta.
Rigbi features longtime friends Jon Irizarry on lead guitar and vocals and Randy Sabo on bass and Brian Cornish on drums and Pat Maloney playing the keys, percussion, and glockenspiel. The group's 2014 release, Visionary, garnered praise from tastemakers including Ear The The Ground, Americana UK and IndieLondon among others.
After several experiences with other bands and individual efforts, Jon, Randy and Brian came together for open studio sessions in early 2011. They quickly found a rhythm and gelled musically; however, lacking a name and a little glockenspiel (don't we all?) they added Pat Maloney to the group. Listening to Rigbi is a unique experience- upbeat, thought-provoking and fun. (imagine Keane and Vampire Weekend had a son and played Weezer tunes to him during his formative years). They will get you moving and smiling, like you've put on a red track suit, jumped into a Wes Anderson film and joined the Bombardment Society.
