I just found your music, and I totally love them. Thanks for making my day, Rick.
Here a little question, and I wonder if you could help. Do you know where can i find the Lyrics for one of your song
"one step closer" ?
I really want to play it on my guitar and sing along with your lovely song :)
Thank you very much for your help!

Harolds Beach Club still has the draw;
the staff an just this night graced with
Sea Cruz Band on stage! It was a pleasure to meet Rick Strikland who
took home the Awards for 2010 @ CBMA's Of course the best backup
in the business was there as well
Jimmy Latham Road Manager for
Sea Cruz and Ray Scott with 94.9
The Surf had the night off but it is
in his Blood to be there on his
night off. And it was a relief to
Butch Barnes Leading the Train

Hi, Rick! I spoke with you on my husband's cell phone Saturday evening when you were at Boom Boom's. Thanks for talking with me, by the way! My husband bought your three CD's, which I am very much enjoying right now. I cannot tell you how much I enjoy your music - you are (I'm sure you know) incredibly gifted. Thanks for sharing all your talents with all of us! Hope I can catch one of your shows sometime, since I couldn't get to the beach this past weekend. Take care.
July 24, 2010
My husband is a musician of 45 years and has played all up and down the east coast. He was directed to your music by a friend of ours and we love the song So Do I. Is that something only you did or is it possible to get the lyrics to it? What an amazing song!!!!

Rick, Steve and I were fortunate enough to hear you, meet you and even have you autograph several CD's we bought while enjoying your show at the Spanish Galleon during SOS in North Myrtle Beach in April. We have listened to and enjoyed the CD's ever since. You are a true talent and we are delighted to be telling our friends back here in New Mexico about you! One thing I didn't find out is whether or not and when the interview you did with CNN will be aired. We'd love to see it. Keep making that great music and we'll keep up with you from a distance! Again, it was our pleasure! Steve & Nancy Cooper; Albuquerque/Belen, New Mexico. YOUR NEW MEXICO FANS !!!!

Rick, after hearing your band's debut at Fat Harold's this past weekend, we followed thru on our promise to try to get you booked at TJ's Nightlife in Raleigh, NC., by telling owner Ray Hall about your "terrific, positive, danceable" sound. Then Ray called me Tuesday night and said that he had booked you for April 8th. Needless to say, we are looking forward to it. ALthough I had Something Smooth and other hits on compilations, we are really enjoying the Something Smooth and Island Soul CDs I picked up from you Saturday.
Take Care, Jim (Cary, NC)

It's been a long, long, time coming...I'd love to hear from you. You can't imaging how many times I think of you and all of the hours and hours of vocal practice we used to put in. I am forever greatful for the many musical gifts you shared with me. Call me sometime - same old number under r.alexander.
September 29, 2008
Love your music! I must have been living under a rock for the last couple years. Was at a local shag club (Thirsty's II in Grbo, NC) and heard Something Smooth for the first time a couple nights ago and really can't listen to it enough now. I am camped out on your website until my CD gets here. If you ever play anywhere near Greensboro, I will be there! Thanks for the great music that I actually feel instead of just listening to.
August 14, 2008
We miss your presence and music at Morgan Creek Grill, See you in Murrells Inlet this September. I hope the New Castels are cold.
August 8, 2008
hey rick,been while, everything in your bio is on the conservative side, I wish I had half of your talent.I feel fortunate to have jammed with you when you played bass for LCB. I saw what the next level should be,still trying to catch up.I live in the mid tenn area now but I vacationed at sle of palms this summer and jammed with jody creel and his gang, had a blast. good luck and hope to catch you in the nash. area sometime.

I just happened upon your concert at Sandpiper this week and was totally blown away! I came home and told my husband that I had just seen one of the coolest and best musicians/ vocalists I've ever had the privilege of watching from a few feet away! He looked at me like I had gone nuts, especially since he knew where I was! Thank you thank you for this great experience. I'll never forget THIS new year's party! (Neither will my 90 year-old mother who was grinning from ear to ear after being pretty down for a long time.) You are an awesome guy and made a whole lot of people very happy! Bless you!
December 16, 2007
good to see all your success Rick,
December 11, 2007
Very nice site! Keep up the good work cause Beach Music needs Rick Strickland. He adds the flavor to the meal...or in this case...to the sound! Thanks for all you do...
December 8, 2007
I remember the first time I heard Rick perform an orginal song back in the 70's.He was great then and just keeps getting better.
He is by far the most talented song writer,singer,vocal arranger and versatile musican I have ever known.
The only way Rick can not keep having hit songs is to stop writing and recording, and I don't see that happening any time soon.
Congraulations on your second Cammy Award.
Your life time friend, Gary Bruce.
November 28, 2007
I'm so very proud of you. You go White Boy!!! Great Website Gail.
Love ya Lots!!!
November 25, 2007
Good too see you on the web, Rick. Cool site. You're a great entertainer, song writer, arranger and friend. Best of luck! I hope we get to gig together again before too long.
