About Rick

Rick Hamel has been involved in music his entire life. He learned to play the guitar at a young age. As a teenager he won various awards and was offered scholarships to many music schools including Berkley College of Music. He has played with several bands as both a guitarist and lead singer.

He decided on a different career path in college rather than music. However, music is in his blood and he continued to showcase his musical talents as a night club DJ in Boston. His experience as a DJ shines through in the upbeat crowd pleasing tunes he now performs as a solo acoustic singer and guitarist.

Rick lives in Worcester and enjoys entertaining crowds at local bars and restaurants in Massachusetts and Rhode Island with his unique arrangements of popular hits from all eras and genres of music.
