|Zorikh Lequidre is a multi-talented entertainer and artist. His musical styles embrace the gamut of rockabilly, blues, rock & roll, rhythm & blues, oldies, country, folk, bluegrass, dixieland, celtic, show tunes, sea chanties, and whatever else happens to come drifting by. His unique use of guitar, harmonica, and kazoo defies imitation.
Zorikh was a semi-finalist twice on Q104 FM's Rock & Roll Fantasy Camp competition. He has been seen on Phil Fiumano's New York Rocks TV, MTV Video Music Awards, Fox 5 News, Comedy Central's Insomniac, and Crash Boom TV. He has played at such fine establishments as Kenny's Castaways, C-Note, Iggy's Keltic Lounge, and Gallagher's Ship's Mast Pub in New York City and Brooklyn. He also plays the subways in New York City and performs at parties, conventions, and other functions.
At his shows, audiences have been brought to their feet, cracked up to hysterics, and thrilled to pieces, as Zorikh mixes up a set of classic covers with lesser-known songs, medleys, original works with re-interpreted favorites. Some fan faves include "You Got Me," "I'm a Believer," "When the Celts go Marching In," "You Shook Me All Night Long," "Jonny B. Goode of the Lower East Side," "The Drinking Trillogy," and "The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins in the Style of Arlo Guthrie."
Some things that have been said about Zorikh's Performances:
"...the more than brilliant Zorikh Lequidre...came dressed in full Celtic gear. He sang an absolutely hilarious rendition of "Bilbo" the hobbit in which the audience gladly participated. Mr. Lequidre has an enticing stage presence and a gift for humor. With his convivial act, he proved he was much more than a handsome guy in a kilt." - Hi!
