Rickie Lee Tanner Band was formed in mid-2006 by long time friends and band mates Rickie Lee and Jimmy B. The decision was made early on that this time around music would be more rewarding than the monetary gains offered by their previous endeavors. This time writing and showcasing original material would be the true foundation of the band. Writing and performing original material would mean harder work and more dedication than many musicians were willing to take on so the audition process had to be handled with great care. After a few months of auditions and carefully weighing their options the final pieces of the puzzle were put into place.
The guys started work on their original material immediately. Releasing their debut single "Highway To Nowhere" in November of 2006. The song found immediate success on Soundclick quickly climbing into the top five surpassing nearly 26,000 songs to get there. Soon "Highway To Nowhere" was being distributed by nearly all of the top online retailers including iTunes, Rhapsody, and Napster.
The success of their debut single soon gained the attention of Nashville OnStage, a television show based in the country music capital that showcases independent artists and their material. Just one month after the song was released the guys were invited to appear on Nashville OnStage. The show will be broadcast on Cable Channel 19 as well as PAX TV in the Nashville area, reaching as many as three and a half million potential viewers.
Rickie Lee Tanner & Powder Keg carry with them years of experience entertaining crowds of all sizes and all walks of life. The shows they put on have to be seen to be believed with energy levels and showmanship to rival many of the top acts in the music business today.
I know we've been kinda quiet lately but there's a good reason. We've gone through some personnel changes. We have a new bass player now Kim McKinney!
In late 2009, our first Nashville studio album was released! Fast Lane was produced by country music star Rockie Lynne and it includes songs written by Rickie Lee Tanner and Rockie Lynne.
In 2011 The Rickie Lee Tanner will be playing numerous fairs in the Midwest and even opening for country star Justin Moore..... Be sure to check out a show near you and keep a listen out for NEW MUSIC and re-recorded versions of some of our fan favorites that will feature our new sound.
We play live as often as we can. We're available for booking pretty much anywhere if the situation is right. Live performance is where we shine the brightest. When we formed the band we looked for entertainers, for people who believe the crowd came to see a show. If they were just there to "listen" to music then there might as well be a jukebox in the corner. There are loads of special moments, opening for nationally touring acts and such, but we can't tell you too much about that. To quote a Garth song "Oh the stories we could tell if it weren't for the code of the road..."
I always say, "I like the song, not the genre or the artist."
