Experience the language of the soul with

Ric Santiago, a multi-talented musician who is currently

based in the Tampa Bay area of Florida.

Born and raised in New York City, Ric began playing for

dances, restaurants, and other social events at age 13.

Throughout his teens and twenties, while living in the

tri-state area of New York, Ric performed with

some of the area’s popular R&B and Top 40 cover bands.


While in college Ric continued playing for various events and

was involved in New York’s Salsa and Merengue music

scene which led to performances throughout

the US, the Caribbean, and Latin America.


Ric has a diverse performance background.

Music has always been a part of his soul and his

real-life performances combined with his formal music

education enabled him to work with a wide range

of performers that included

Rock, Soul, and R&B, Salsa, Jazz, and Pop music.


Ric's career also includes brass and woodwind

instrument repair. Ric formally studied instrument

repair and did apprenticeships to learn about and hone

his craft. Ric has spent 25+ years repairing

instruments including working as a veteran technician

with Sam Ash Music and Gigliotti Woodwinds in

Tampa Bay Florida and now is directly

available to repair instruments.


And if this wasn't enough, Ric Santiago is also available for

music lessons for people of all ages and abilities.


Music is more than a career for Ric,

it's a part of him, a part of his soul.
