Rick Estrin looking — and sounding — as good as ever

Published On February 20, 2013 | By admin | News


Anybody who has ever seen Rick Estrin perform live knows the man prides himself on looking sharp.

So it could have been a relative catastrophe when, during his first performance at the Bucks County Blues Society’s annual R&B picnic 22 years ago, he ended up wearing the contents of a concert-goer’s sandwich.

“A woman got barbecue sauce all over my suit,” Estrin recalls. “Fortunately, the dry cleaner was successful in getting it out, so it was all good.

“(Bucks County) is always a great time. I really dig it there, man.”

San Francisco native Estrin has a nearly 25-year history with the Bucks County Blues Society, performing his first area gig at Jasper’s in Levittown in 1988 as a member of Little Charlie & the Nightcats. The band has made multiple area appearances since and will headline the picnic for an unprecedented third time Saturday at Snipes Farm in Falls.
