nostatic (aka nostatic trio +) is an ensemble that cranks out a mix of jazz, funk, soul, and pop. Led by bassist Todd Richmond, the lineup can vary from duo to octet and beyond, with a variety of vocal styles or straight instrumental. From jazz standards to funky soul to tv themes to pop tunes with a nostatic twist - serious music with a sense of humor.
Currently nostatic is:
Claire Rifelj - vox
Rachelle Romeo - sax
Vincent Heckard - drums/perc
Todd Richmond - bass
nostatic is heading into the studio - look for the new album in 2013!
