The Ride

Phil Fernandez – guitar & vocal
Marco Cinelli – guitar & vocal
Bako Mikaelian – harmonica & vocal

 

Are you ready to enjoy the ride? This catchy group was born in the minds of three friends, all of them passionate about blues. They perform acoustic blues with the hints of folk and rock music. Accustomed to European scenes, from Amsterdam to London and Paris. Marco Cinelli, Pascal “Bako” Mikaelian and Philippe Fernandez are three talented musicians with many skills. Three different voices, two guitars and a harmonica create an interesting mixture of sounds and a trip to their eternal notes. “The Ride” makes a tribute to its idols without ever copying them. Tony Joe White, J.J. Cale and John Lee Hooker are just a few of their inspirations. Considering this, the trio invites you to discover their original compositions. Their wild rhythms take you away from the often deceptive cliches which associate the blues with sadness. The joy of their blues takes you for “The Ride”!
