The Rippingtons have been performing for 25 years and have released 18 studio albums, including their most recent, “Cote D’Azur,” which was released in February 2011 and reached No. 1 on Billboard.

The five members of The Rippingtons are: Russ Freeman, guitar and keyboards; Jeff Kashiwa, saxophone; Dave Karasony, drums; Bill Heller, keyboards; and Rico Belled, bass.
