"If Pacifico Rik don't get you smiling, you're either dead or a communist. Either way, you've got issues."
National Radio Hall of Famer Big Don O'Brien
Pacifico Rik Ferrell originally hails from the historic port of Annapolis, MD. “They say Annapolis is a drinking town with a sailing problem, and I can confirm that,” says Rik. “Summers were all boats, bottles, and bonfires on the Chesapeake, and my first guitar, a Yamaha acoustic, never left my side.”
Rik’s Cuban-born father gave him his love of Latin Jazz & Caribbean groove early on, which he combines with a passion for Outlaw Country & classic Southern Rock to create a unique sound that’s been dubbed ‘the Intersection Where Austin Meets Key West’, and ‘Beach Music for Drunk Girls to Dance To’. This fresh, addictive style was on full display with Rik’s alt-country band the Roadhouse Clams, and fueled the fan-favorite single “Sippin On a Sunset”.
These days, Rik calls Southwest FL home, with his wife Heidi & dog Mika, and he continues to rack up the miles on his Taylor Guitars, performing at festivals, house concerts, tiki bars, dog shows, funerals, gender reveals, liquor store grand openings and more across North America and in the Caribbean.
"Rik Ferrell's sound is the intersection where Austin, Texas meets the Florida Keys."
