Ripe is a Funk/Pop band out of Boston, MA that was born as a result of its seven members' uniting over one belief: with enough passion and honesty, music can still make the earth shake. With one eye looking back to the inception of both funk and psychedelic music, and the other looking forward with a modern concept of what makes people move, Ripe seeks both to honor musical history as well as to make it. The perfect fruit is equal parts past and present, and this is the approach of the Ripe sound.

With a strong devotion to consistently creating an unforgettable live experience, Ripe has kept the groove going touring nationally from coast to coast. With a recently released sophomore EP, Hey Hello, and plans to start recording a full-length album in the coming year, Ripe is shifting into overdrive with every intention of taking this to the stratosphere. The Ripe family asks you to get loose, get down, and get ready. The party is just getting started.

Nick Black
Nick Black is quickly becoming one of the most recognizable names in the pop/soul music scene. His highly entertaining live show experience features smooth soul vocals, soaring falsetto, and blazing guitar. Black and his band are bringing together the sounds of old and new, creating something completely unique and entirely original.

Nick released his latest album DEEP BLUE in May 2015 to critical acclaim, featuring two music videos for the tracks “Ocean” and “Worst You Can Do”. His work on the album bridged the gap between his soul music roots and his songwriting allowing Black to come into his own as an artist. Following he release of DEEP BLUE, Nick began touring nationally throughout the Midsouth and east coast, using a group of top tier Memphis musicians to back him up.
