Hope you have your dancin’ shoes on, because you’re in for a hep ep. Joining us in the studio are Richie Ballerini and Lee Edwards, a couple of crooners tripping the light fantastic in the Reno nightlife.

Richie Ballerini, crooner and lounge singer from Reno, NV

Ballerini is an old salty dog and veteran of the music industry, having worked with the actual Rat Pack, back when his hair was darker and the nation a little more naive. We could talk to him and listen to his stories for hours. (In fact, Dogwater Dick DID do exactly that during setup and soundcheck this week.) A marvelous entertainer, he lights up Reno/Sparks every weekend at Pietro’s at Victorian Square and is in the market for his fourth wife.

Lee Edwards, crooner and lounge singer from Reno, NV

Edwards has joined him this last year as a complete novice professional singer. However, don’t let this lack of experience fool you – this guy has the chops to perform with the best of them. He joins Ballerini every other week at The Polo Lounge in Midtown, wooing the granny panties off of their fans. A soon-to-be father, Edwards has a lot on his plate, juggling duties and starting out as a professional entertainer.
