The Incomparable Ricky Williams and Song Stylist Shantel Baker

Rick Williams
Ricky has enjoyed performing in many of the upscale clubs & restaurants in South Florida. He's appeared with bands and as a single performing the songs he's created track by track independently including covers and originals. The Forge, an icon on Miami Beach was his home for eleven years, one of the longest running shows in South Florida. He has performed at the Seminole Hardrock Casino & Hotel in Hollywood, Florida on numerous occasions. As a singer & songwriter, his mix of Smooth Jazz, R&B and Soul has stirred deep feelings among his fans who keep coming back for more. He has performed before such stars as Don King, Rick James, Barry Gibb, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson & Prince while they were dining. Brought up in New York City, proved to be fertile ground for his music. Blind since 6 years old, he started his career at 9 on the drums, then began playing the piano at 14 with lessons from blind artist Valerie Capers. The genesis of his music career was really blessed when he was booked at such notable clubs as The Village Gate in Greenwich Village, The New Cotton Club and many after hour clubs in New York City. To his many credits, he wrote “Misty Morning” for Ollie Woodson’s album, one of the original Temptations. He played Clavinet for Super Star Bennie King for his album “Super Natural”. Ricky has played with Bette Midler, Peter Niro, Roy Ayers, Sister Sledge, and he did a commercial with Luther Vandross. Ricky was at Electric Lady Studio during the recording of many of Stevie Wonders compositions and played on Stevie Wonders Soundbook. He was also in the studio during the recording of Superstition. Today Ricky is still consulting with Stevie on the latest technology for blind musicians which they both use. One of Ricky’s favorite programs which he recently introduced to Stevie is Logic.

New King Mango commemorative Buttons

Friends of King Mango are now in the button-making business in the hopes of raising much needed funds in support of this December's King Mango Strut parade. 

"I love them!" said Ana Marie Windisch of  Mayfair's Windisch Gallery,  "each one is like a miniature work of art."

A new button will come out every two weeks and cost just $2.  Each will feature a unique design taken from themes from past parades.  Images like  'After Katrina,' 'Do the Mangobama,' and "Don't Taze me, Bro!" will appear on the buttons which should sell quickly and appeal to Strut-lovers of all ages.

The first button to go on sale is based on 2010's big event, the Gulf Oil Spill.  As you can see, King Mango is happily pouring a can of BP crude over his head. 

The 'Oil Spill," button is on sale now at both the Windisch Gallery at 2911 Grand Avenue in Coconut Grove and Shell Lumber at 2733 SW 27th Avenue, Miami.  A series of commemorative buttons will be available at additional Grove locations next week.
