Rik Slave & The Phantoms A New Orleans rock and roll establishment since 1986, Rik Slave and The Phantoms were founded by Rik Slave (vocals), Greg Terry (drums) and Michael O’Rourke (bass). In 1989, their debut EP, “More Drunken Buffoonery”, was released with guitarist Robert Lambert.
By 1992, The Phantoms were routinely packing clubs in New Orleans, regularly touring the East Coast and building a strong and loyal following. The band continued touring through the mid 1990’s, but multiple personnel changes eventually took a toll on the group. In 1998, Rik Slave and The Phantoms disbanded.
Ten years later in 2008, all three founding members re-formed the group with the help of Pat Catania, Chris Lenox (guitar) and Ben Caston (keyboards). That same year, the revitalized band recorded their first full length album simply titled “Rik Slave and The Phantoms”, produced by J. Yuenger.
In 2010, nearly 25 years after the band’s inception, they teamed up with J. Yuenger again to record “The Land of The Phantoms”, continuing the long tradition of bringing an exciting and honest rock and roll performance to its audience. Now, in 2018, you can experience Rik Slave and The Phantoms at this years Falaya Fest! Rik Slave and The Phantoms perform from 5:25 to 6:00 p.m., find more information on the Falaya Fest 2018 Facebook page.
